The allegations of land grabbing involving former Cabinet Minister, MLA Etela Rajender has created a quiet sensation in Telangana. A few leaders from BJP and Telangana have extended their support to Etela.
As a response to the issue, Etela Rajender said he was made a spake goat for questioning the KCR single-handed authority in the party. He even asked if the Telangana movement was fought to benefit the family ruling.
The TRS government, which maintained its silence over the much-talked-about issue has finally spoken about the row.
TRS leader, Minister of All Welfare Departments, BC Welfare Koppula Eshwar held a press meet on Tuesday over the issue. In the press meet, he rubbished the claims of Etela Rajender.
"It is false that Etela Rajender was not respected in the TRS party. Making allegations against the Chief Minister is a lack of discipline. On several occasions, Etela spoke against the Chief Minister and the party," the Minister said.
The Minister even rubbished the claims of Etela that he played a big role in the party during the Telangana agitation movement and said, even before Etela had joined the party, the Telangana movement was full-on active.
