Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president Kalvakuntla Taraka Ramarao (KTR) was addressing the third edition of Telangana Vikasa Samithi along with political scientist Neera Chandhoke, former Information Commissioner Madabhushi Sridhar, Telangana Vikasa Samithi president Deshapathi Srinivas and several scholars.
Addressing the gathering KTR said, “There should be enough space in a democracy even though one may not agree with what others speak. The country’s political discourse is witnessing a peculiar situation where politics, religion, nationalism are intertwined.” He added, “The situation in the country has reached a place where there is no room for discussion and dissent. Telangana has always had religious tolerance and co-existence and that during the time of Nizam’s, they used to make offerings to the Bhadradri Rama temple.”
KTR’s evident dissatisfaction with ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) didn’t go down well with BJP leaders in the state. Telangana BJP President Dr K Laxman reacting to KTR’s statements asked if the TRS was seeing the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) as the secular party. He also warned TRS that it will lose its’ footing if they continue to talk the same way in the future. He added, “The BJP is trying to position itself as an alternative to the ruling TRS after winning four seats in the recently conducted Lok Sabha elections.”
