Komatireddy cries for YSR name

Reiterating that he was a close political disciple of late chief minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, former minister Komatireddy Venkat Reddy has warned that he would not tolerate if any one tried to speak ill of the late leader.

Speaking to media persons here on Wednesday, Venkat Reddy said that Congress would win Parakala seat in the June 12 by-election very easily if the Congress High Command announced formation of Telangana State.

Exuding confidence that the UPA government would announce separate State by 2014, Komatireddy warned that the Congress would be buried in the region if the Centre fails to concede the decades’ long demand of the people of the region. He also made sensational remarks that some power hungry party leaders have mortgaged the Telangana slogan for posts.
