After facing strong retort from the social media activists of YSR Congress, finally the newly elected BJP MLA of Dubbaka of Telangana state has withdrawn the derogatory comments on YS Rajasekhar Reddy.
Raghunandan has made derogatory comments on late YS Rajasekhar Reddy and tried to defame his character during a press meet. Soon after telecasting his words, the hardcore YSRCP supporters have started trolling him on social media and even threatened him. So finally he stepped down and said that he is withdrawing those comments stated his words are unfortunate. A day after making highly deplorable comments referring to the tragic demise of Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, Raghunandan Rao had to take back his comments. “I strongly regret the comments which I had inadvertently made yesterday referring to Dr YSR. I admit he was a great leader and I admire him very much. On many occasions, I appreciated the pro-poor schemes introduced by the great leader,” Raghunandan Rao said. Stating that he was withdrawing his comments which he had made unintentionally, the BJP MLA appealed to the fans of YSR, who had been trolling him for the last 24 hours, to forgive him and end the controversy.
At a media conference on Sunday, Raghunandan Rao said: “In the past, a person died at Pavuralagutta after speaking in a manner similar to what KTR (state municipal administration minister) is saying now, and he will also meet with the same fate.” Within no time, the MLA’s comments went viral in the social media, attaining a huge criticism from the fans of YSR and also YSR Congress party cadre from several corners of the globe.
