He was a great devotee of Telangana Chief Minister KCR. So deep was his devotion that he had even constructed a temple for KCR on his land. Not just that, he used to perform several rituals and poojas to the idol of KCR with unfailing regularity.
But, not any more. Diehard KCR fan and TRS worker Gunda Ravinder of Dandepalli in Mancherial district is now a very disappointed man. He is upset that the party is not recognising his efforts and that it was ignoring him. He tried many times for an appointment with KCR, but the latter did not give him his time. He was being troubled by a local businessman with strong connections to the local MLA. Exasperated, he has decided to leave the TRS. On Tuesday, he resigned from the TRS. True to his style, he submitted his resignation to the statue of KCR in the temple that he had constructed for him.
In a parting kick, Ravinder said that many loyal and original party workers were being similarly ignored. He said these workers had braved lathis and courted arrests in the cause of Telangana. But, today they are lying uncared and neglected, he said.
