Hyderabad: Caretaker Telangana IT minister K Tarakarama Rao mocked Chandrababu Naidu for turning the Telugu Desam Party which was established as a political force to uphold the pride and honour of Telugus, into a baby Congress party.

KTR referred to the murder attempt on Leader of Opposition in AP assembly and YSR Congress party president, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in the VIP lounge of Visakhapatnam airport on October 25. He said that within an hour, AP minister Lokesh tweeted condemning the attack. He also posted his reaction on Twitter around 3.30 pm, close to three hours after the murder attempt. Chandrababu Naidu however, was quick to politicise his reaction, and saw a "link" between the TRS and BJP.
KTR also commented that income tax raids were a common phenomenon and in this matter too, Chandrababu was resorting to politics.

The AP chief minister appeared to be gripped by fear and anxiety.
KTR remarked that it was odd that Chandrababu who was an ally of the BJP for four years, is now resorting to criticism of the TRS saying it was cosying up to the BJP.
