Challenges are common in politics. The oppositions keep making comments, and it is common for the ruling party to give counters. Leaders throw challenges in this order. However, If you stand strong on something rather than being challenged, one could be recognized among the people. Otherwise, the dignity gets torn in time. Currently, IT Minister Taraka Rama Rao of Kalwakuntla, who is campaigning as the future CEO, is in such a situation.
KTR argues that no state is doing as much good to farmers in the state as they are doing. He recently threw an open challenge to come and see the discussion on this. TPCC chief Rewanth Reddy accepted his challenge. Agreed for a live debate, and asked for the place to be at.
Tolivelugu took this challenge seriously and called ut both KTR and Revanth Reddy for an open debate. The stage was set up at the studio to benefit the farmers, solve the problems of citizens of Telangana. While Revanth Reddy arrived as promised, KTR didn’t. And exactly the same time, KTR was doing an ‘Ask KTR’ session on Twitter. However, Netizens came up with some bold questions toppling the situation. The questions included KTR’s absence at the Tolivelugu studio. Many believed that KTR did this because he was scared of not being able to give answers.
In fact, analysts say this is nothing new for KTR. They recall that in the past he did the same. The idea of the White Challenge was born out of a drug case that caused a stir in Tollywood. Rewanth Reddy alleged at the time that the ruling party leaders were trying to get the celebrities out of the drugs case.
Minister KTR and former MP Konda Vishweshwar Reddy were challenged to say that they are ready for the White Challenge. KTR also responded positively. He said that he was ready for any test. For this, he was ready to be tested at the Delhi AIMS. But he persuaded Rahul Gandhi to get tested alongside him. KTR was criticized at the time for leaving the challenged man and bringing someone else’s name to the screen.
KTR was also criticized on his party member Raju’s activities. He tweeted that the accused had been arrested within hours of the incident. But, he was not caught by the police then. He was reprimanded by the opposition and the people. Political analysts say that there are many instances where KTR has been discredited.
KTR boasts at press conferences that they have done a lot during the seven years of TRS rule. It is also said repeatedly that all the states in the country are copying their own schemes. Such was not the case when Revanth Reddy threw every challenge to discuss farmer issues. “Farmers’ struggles, expectations of unemployed people, teachers’ difficulties, What is this ..? These are problems for all sections of the state. We have to discuss all of them and think of a solution”, says people.
