Etela Rajender's comments against the TRS party and Chief Minister KCR had sent shocking waves across the state. His comments did not go well with the TRS leaders and they are hitting back at the rebel leader.
Joining the list, TRS firebrand leader, Finance minister Harish Rao gave a fitting reply to Etela's statements that he was humiliated in the Telangana Rashtra Samithi(TRS) party.
Rubbishing the former Minister's claims, Harish Rao said he is committed to TRS. He might have his reasons to bid goodbye to the party, but it is not advisable for him to talk about me. There is no truth in his claims. He is trying to shoot from my shoulders, he said.
Calling the Chief Minister a father-like figure, the mass leader said, he is a disciple of the party and he had never crossed the line earlier and will not cross in the coming days. I am like a soldier to the party, he said.
Harish Rao, who is often regarded as a mass leader was given the responsibility of the Huzurabad by-elections reportedly. Harish Rao is said to have met the TRS cadre in the Assembly constituency.
