Telangana’s caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today faced flak from Opposition parties for losing cool on a man, who asked him about proposed 12 per cent reservation for Muslims, during an election rally in Komaram Bheem Asifabad district.
Insisting the man to remain silent, Rao reportedly said,”What are you talking? Sit silent. What about 12 per cent? Why are you in hurry? Tere baap ko bolunga na (I will tell your father). Are you doing tamasha.”
Later, during the course of his speech, Rao dubbed the man a ‘sanyasi’ and said there was a need to increase reservation for tribals and Muslim minorities.
The TRS leader had earlier accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not clearing the proposed reservation for Muslims. If reports are to be believed, the man asked Rao about the status of the proposed quota which was passed by the State Assembly and sent to the Centre for approval.
Reacting sharply to this, Congress’ Telangana unit tweeted,”Drunk with power, KCR acts like a dictator. KCR, you are answerable to the people of Telangana. Arrogance and dictatorship have no space in a democracy!”
