Pasupuleti Balaraju turns a hero for Telangana men
Deccan Chronicle, C.R.Gowri Shanker, 24 January 2014

Hyderabad: Tribal welfare minister, Pasupuleti Balaraju’s declaration, “I am committed to the Congress. I support bifurcation,” has made him a hero among Telangana legislators and those backing the decision.

Balaraju was elected twice from Paderu (ST) Assembly constituency in the tribal belt of Visakhapatnam district.

Some members, who are close to Balaraju, say the minister’s brave stand also reflects regrouping of weaker sections in the party and the challenge to the upper castes.

Interestingly, the support of dalit minister, who holds the portfolio of rural development, to Balaraju, has given rise to this speculation. (మరింత…)
