Asserting that the YSR Congress Party stands for secular views, its party minority cell convenor Rehman slammed the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for their alleged remarks that the party has allegedly tied up with the MIM.
‘TRS leaders– Taraka Rama Rao and T Harish Rao-have been very vocal in criticising YSRCP after they survived a scare at the Parakal by-election but their remarks that we have a tacit understanding with Majlis and other unwarranted comments are baseless,’ Mr Rehman told reporters here today. He said ‘our secular credentials need not be questioned, particularly by those who trade political movements for personal gains.
We condemn the hate speeches made by MIM MLA Mr Akbaruddin Owaisi, but TRS attributing motives to our Party is highly deplorable,’ he said.
The criticism stems out of the fear that YSR Congress has become a force to reckon with in Telangana region which was apparent in the Parakal by-election, he said.
