TRS releases advani’s 2002 anti-t letter
June 10,2012, By DC Correspondent, Warangal
With the Telangana Rashtra Samiti and the Bharatiya Janata Party pulling out all stops to corner the pro-Telangana vote in Parkal, both parties are doing their best to wrest the initiative on Telangana statehood.
Hours before leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj’s arrival to campaign for the BJP in Parkal, TRS leader Harish Rao on Saturday released a video clip of the BJP’s former minister Ch. Vidyasagar Rao and a letter written by former Union home minister L.K. Advani in 2002.
Releasing the video clip and the letter, Mr Harish Rao, the TRS’ strategy expert, alleged that the BJP was trying to reap the “Telangana crop harvest” that had been sown, watered and cared for by the TRS since 2001.
Mr Harish Rao distributed copies of Mr Advani’s letter, dated April 1, 2002 and addressed to the then BJP MP A. Narendra, saying that “regional disparities in economic development can be tackled through planning.” Mr Advani stated in his letter, “we do not propose the creation of a separate state of Telangana.”
The video clip shows Mr Vidyasagar Rao heaping praise on TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao by saying that “nobody can change history” at a meeting during the Sakala Janula Samme last September, while referring to Mr Chandrasekhar Rao’s role in forcing the Centre to issue the December 9 statement following his fast.
In the release to counter the BJP’s bypoll campaign, Mr Harish Rao distributed copies of Mr Advani’s letter, dated 1 April 2002 and addressed to the then BJP MP A. Narendra, saying that “regional disparities in economic development can be tackled through planning and efficient use of available resources.
“Therefore,” Mr Advani stated in his letter, “we do not propose the creation of a separate state of Telangana.”
