BJP leader Etela Rajender made sensational comments against Telangana Minister Harish Rao. Etela participated in two meetings on Sunday, one was at Uppalpally, Kamalapur Mandal of Hanamkonda, and another meeting was conducted at Bonthupalli village of Veenavanka Mandal of Karimnagar district. He criticized Harish Rao and said that the latter is eyeing the CM chair.
Etela recalled that recently in a meeting Harish Rao alleged that he wanted to become the chief minister of the state. He questioned that how could he become CM of the state? He also said that KCR's son, daughter, and nephew are eyeing the CM chair. Etela also stated that KCR is thinking that there is no stop for him in the state and could do anything. He urged everyone to vote for BJP and should teach a lesson to KCR.
Etela Rajender was stripped of his portfolio after he faced land-grabbing allegations. It has been alleged that 100 acres of land belonging to the backward classes, scheduled castes, and scheduled tribes were occupied illegally by Etela and his family members. However, Etela demanded a probe into the matter by the sitting judge. The opposition leaders said that Etela's removal from the cabinet was the strategic move by KCR to neutralize the rise of Etela Rajender in the party.
