Hyderabad: Telangana IT and Panchayat Raj Minister in the caretaker government K Taraka Rama Rao (KTR) counter-attack to TPCC president Uttam Kumar Reddy.
On Friday, Uttam had ridiculed KTR's political leadership terming him as a novice who may have washed dishes in the US before plunging into politics.
Responding to Uttam Kumar Reddy's criticism, KTR admitted that like all other Indians who go to the US, he too had washed dishes.
In making this comment, KTR was also implying that he led a life of dignity. The Telangana minister also took potshots at Congress president Rahul Gandhi characterizing him as pappu (nitwit). He said that unlike Rahul Gandhi, he earned a decent living and found a foothold for himself in politics.
KTR did not stop with that. In a damning reference to an incidence which went viral during the 2014 elections when Uttam Kumar's car was reported to have been carrying cash worth Rs 2.5 crores which were burnt to ashes, KTR in a tongue-in-cheek comment said "Unlike you I did not loot people's money and burn it in my car." He substantiated his statement with a news clip on his Twitter handle.
Dear @UttamTPCC Garu, I may have washed dishes in my home in the US (which by the way is what every Indian in US does in their own homes)— KTR (@KTRTRS) September 8, 2018
I am proud that I’ve worked & earned a decent living on my own unlike your Pappu
