Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member K Kesava Rao is one man who does not mince his words while taking on his critics. Participating in a television show on Monday night, Kesava Rao reacted strongly to the criticism leveled by the followers of Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy that he (KK) had no popular base. Anybody, including your Jagan, go and check with the people of Telangana. They will tell you who Kesava Rao is. I can get 110 out 115 seats for the Congress in Telangana. It is my challenge, he said.
While describing Jagan as his third son, Kesava Rao said the Kadapa MP should learn the art of politics from him. His father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was no doubt one of the most popular chief ministers of the state. And it takes a long time for Jagan to reach that stage, he said.
