Daaru-Daarussalam nexus: Bandi hits back at KTR on Alluri row

Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Friday responded to Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president KT Rama Rao’s (KTR) comments on Alluri Sitarama Raju’s relation to Telangana and Hyderabad.

Bandi Sanjay said, “Crown Prince of TRS seems frustrated that Nizam’s or Kasim Razvi’s picture wasn’t displayed there.” calling the TRS party the “Daaru-Darussalam Nexus,” he said that Alluri Sitarama Raju fought for Tribals unlike TRS’ “Razakar friends” who killed their own people of Telangana.

“BJP was committed to the creation of Telangana State even before the TRS Party was formed,” Sanjay said.

KTR on Friday ridiculed the BJP for linking freedom fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju to Telangana.

“The side effects of being coached at WhatsApp university,” taunted KTR while reacting to Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s speech at a program organised by the culture department in Delhi on Thursday on Telangana state formation day.
