Who insulted the Governor? KTR responds to Tamilsai’s allegations

Hyderabad: Telangana IT KT Rama Rao (KTR) slammed governor Tamilisai Soundararajan after she accused the state government of not respecting her office.

Addressing the media, KTR had said that recent comments made by Soundararajan are “diversionary tactics”, on the issue. “If the Union government can’t solve issues, they resort to diversionary tactics like these. We have not insulted the governor’s office in anyway,” KTR asserted.

KTR brought up TRS party member Padi Kaushik Reddy’s membership to the Legislative Council, which was refused by the Telanganagovernor.

“Coming from a political backdrop, if you can be a Governor why can’t Kaushik Reddy be an MLC?” asked KTR.

He further said that the Telangana government never had issues when ex-IB chief ESL Narasimhan was the former governor of the state.

On Wednesday, Tamilisai called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital and is believed to have apprised him of the recent incidents in Telangana, including violation of governor’s protocol and the state government doing away with the governor’s address from the Budget session of the state legislature. 

After the meeting, she spoke to the reporters and said that while she was not offended, she left to the people of Telangana to judge the situation themselves.

“I am concerned about the office of Governor. It should not be repeated. The office of the Governor should be respected. I am here today but somebody else may come tomorrow,” Tamilsai said.
