The ongoing “war of words” between TRS and TDP over naming domestic terminal in Shamshabad airport after NTR is growing day by day. A row has erupted when Telangana Assembly passed a resolution against Union Government’s decision to christen domestic terminal as NTR.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has reacted on TRS’ row over this and issued a detailed clarification, “Leaders like NTR, Mahatma Ganhi and Ambedkar has no regional barriers. NTR’s contribution to Telangana is huge. Abolition of patel patwari system is quintessential example how NTR brought the difference in people’s lives. In fact, many of leaders now are in this position because of NTR.” Naidu indirectly hinted at KCR that he is in this position today because of NTR.
Sharply reacting to this, Telangana Irrigation Minister Harish Rao asked, “If NTR is KCR’s Guru, then Indira Gandhi is your (Chandrababu) Guru as you kick started your political career in Congress. How come you are now talking against the name of Rajiv Gandhi?” Harish also took pot-shots against Telangana TDP leaders who are supporting Naidu in the matter in contrast to T-Assembly’s resolution.
