He is known as the troubleshooter in the pink bandwagon who came to the rescue whenever the party needs him. But things are no longer the same for Finance minister Harish Rao who is now in the news for his baseless logics. With the Huzurabad by-election right around the corner, the nephew of TRS chief and CM KCR seems to be stuck in trouble called Etala Rajendra.
KCR was learnt to give the Huzurabad responsibilities to Harish Rao after leaders like Gangula, Koppula, and Balka Suman failed to meet the supremo’s expectations. Harish Rao who reportedly reached Siddipet upon the instructions of his uncle, has been looking over the party activities in the constituency from his residence.
However, the leader left many TRS leaders in shock with his comments in the meeting organized to pump up the organisers in the constituency. Many ground-level activists were learnt to openly comment that the leader is no more dynamic with his power-packed speeches in public meetings.
Harish Rao who once shut down the opponents with his logic and presence of mind is observed to be disappointing the morale of activists with his pale comments. His comments that petrol and diesel prices will hike if BJP wins in Huzurabad is one such example. Harish’s comments over opponent Etala’s Knee surgery and BJP-Congress merger left many in shock.
