An audio recording of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Chief Revanth Reddy is making rounds on the internet where he is calling Congress senior leader and MP Shashi Tharoor a donkey. In the audio, he further stated that Mr. Tharoor only knows English. “Language is not knowledge. Language is only a communicative skill,” he added. Revanth Reddy also said that people like Shashi Tharoor should be expelled from the party.
TRS Party Working President and Telanagana state Minister KT Rama Rao took to Twitter and criticized Revanth Reddy for his words. In his tweet, he said, “While scumbags like Revanth Reddy need not be responded to; it’s important to expose filth. Here’s his audio clip/comments on Tharoor. Sent to me by a reporter. I am sure if we send it to a forensic lab, it’ll match his infamous ‘Note4Vote’ voice.”
TRS Working President KTR also said, “As the chairman of the IT standing committee, Shashi Tharoor Ji had paid some compliments to the efforts of the Govt of Telangana recently. His colleague in parliament & PCC Cheap calls him a Donkey!! This is what happens when you have a 3rd rate criminal/thug leading the party.”
KTR also tagged Rahul Gandhi asking for his response on TPCC President Revanth Reddy’s words where he insulted a senior leader from his own political party.
Revanth Reddy has also been facing criticism from National Congress leaders for his filthy language.
Former I&B Minister-GOI and senior National Spokesperson of Congress Mr. Manish Tewari on Twitter said, “Dear Mr. Revanth Reddy, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is a valued colleague of yours & mine It would have been better if you would have spoken to him if you had some misgivings about a purported statement of his. Grace & Propriety demands you withdraw your words.”
While Shashi Tharoor himself responded to a tweet and said, “I am sure he was only expressing his fraternal feelings.”
Revanth Reddy is known for using harsh and unparliamentary language towards other leaders. This is not the first time he is news using such abusive language. On many occasions, Mr. Reddy has abused other state leaders too in the past including Congress chief Sonia Gandhi while he was in the Telugu Desam Party.
