Telugu Desam Party senior leader T Devender Goud is feeling jealous of the Congress party for hitting upon the idea of paying Rs 1 lakh compensation to the families of Telangana martyrs, according to Telangana Congress leaders.
The Telangana Congress leaders reacted strongly to Gouds remarks that the Congress leaders were responsible for the death of several innocent youth for Telangana and they were trying to cleanse their sins by paying money to the bereaved families. Goud is jealous of us, as he had neither spirit nor sympathy to help the bereaved families. If he had so much concern for these families, why didnt the TDP take up the programme of assisting the martyrs families? asked Congress MPs forum convenor Ponnam Prabhakar. He reiterated that the Congress party was trying to convince the people that only the Congress would fetch and grant Telangana state.
