Hyderabad/ Nizamabad (Telangana) [India], Nov 16 (ANI): Taking a potshot at Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, IT Minister KT Rama Rao in the caretaker government of Telangana highlighted that the former has never fought an election alone.
Rao, a senior Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader and son of party president K Chandrasekhar Rao, quipped that Naidu will go for an alliance even with the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) if needed.
"Chandrababu Naidu has never fought alone in the elections, the only party he was not in alliance with was YSRCP. He was in alliance with all the parties like Jana Sena, TRS, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPM), and the Congress. Now, only one party is left that is YSRCP. Today, I want to say that if needed Chief Minister Babu will also ally with YSRCP. We don't need Chief Minister Babu's certificate on the coming elections," he said during 'Meet the Press' program here on Thursday.
With campaigning gaining momentum in Telangana ahead of the assembly polls, Nizamabad Member of Parliament (MP) Kalvakuntla Kavitha was seen participating in a car rally in her constituency to boost the morale of party workers in the run-up to the polls.
Hundreds of party workers joined her in this rally in Nizamabad district of Telangana.
The Telangana Legislative Assembly Elections are scheduled to be held on December 7 to elect members from 119 constituencies. The counting of votes will take place on December 11. (ANI)
