The issue of Etela Rajender continues to be a point of contention during assembly sessions. He was suspended for the last two times. If the BJP ranks say that this is happening on purpose, then the TRS leaders are arguing that Etela is crossing the line and that is the reason behind the continuous suspensions. Against this backdrop, Etela Rajender spoke to the media at the BJP state office. In his own style, he lashed out at KCR’s behavior and the suspension in the House.
Etela was furious that the government had written off BJP’s rights in the Legislative Assembly. “I commented that being a speaker, he is insensitive, and they suspended me for this. Didn’t KCR talk about Modi and BJP leaders in a distasteful manner? What punishment do they want to be given to him?” he asked.
He added that the speaker didn’t care to respond to Raghunandan Rao when asked about the BAC issue. Further, Etela stated that the people of all sections are facing severe difficulties under KCR’s regime and he will defeat him, adding that he has no reason to be afraid of KCR. He accused that the people who have done wrong are staying in court and those who are working for the people are being punished.
Rajender said that he was not afraid when the Naeem gang threatened him in the past, how can he be afraid of KCR now? He said that if anything happens to his family members, it is KCR’s responsibility. People’s issues were not discussed in the assembly, he said. Etela Rajender said that the farmers are facing serious difficulties due to non-payment of debt.
