Patel Was Our Leader, Not Of BJP: Mallu
Hyderabad, Feb.14 (Maxim News): TPCC Vice President Mallu Ravi asked State BJP president Dr. K. Laxman to learn about history of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel before claiming the latter as their leader. He pointed out that the “Iron Man” Sardar Patel was the Congress leader to the core. He said it was shameful for Laxman for propagating that Patel was their leader.
Addressing mediapersons at Nagarkurnool district party office along with DCC president Dr Vamshi Krishna, Mallu Ravi said the weaker sections of the society got benefits like reservations due to the Constitution drafted by Dr BR Ambedkar. He made it clear that Laxman had become the State BJP chief due to the same reservations provided by Dr Ambedkar.
The TPCC leader said the Congress was responsible for the provision of reservations to the SCs and STs in the country for the last 72 years. Referring to the Laxman’s criticism against TPCC president Uttam Kumar Reddy, Mallu said Laxman was too little to criticize their leader. (Maxim News)
