Roja At KCR’s House: Even as the spat of words and comments between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is on high after the remarks on AP infrastructure, especially roads, by Telangana IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao, we had AP Tourism Minister RK Roja making a visit to Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s house leading to speculations as to what is Roja’s move intended to be. Is Roja aware of the war of words between the two Telugu states?
The AP Tourism Minister was accompanied by her husband RKSelvamani, daughter and son. Roja was received by CM’s wife Shobha and daughter and MLC K Kavitha. Roja claimed that she made a courtesy call to Pragathi Bhavan to meet Telangana CM, who is like a fatherly figure to her, and sought his blessings after assuming charge as minister for the first time recently.
Roja met with KCR along with her family. She presented a large portrait featuring the TRS supremo. KCR congratulated her on becoming a Minister. He also wished her all the best in future endeavours, CMo sources said.
It is understood later she called on Megastar Chiranjeevi as well at his house in Hyderabad. It is said that Roja met KCR and Chiranjeevi to seek blessings from the two people whom she admires the most.
Later, Roja strongly defended YS Jagan over KTR’s criticism of the power, water, and road situation in Andhra Pradesh. “KTR garu has been seen as a young, dynamic, and inspirational leader. I don’t think he has criticized Andhra Pradesh. He only said ‘neighboring States’. He didn’t name AP. If he has criticized AP, I strongly condemn him. Let him visit our State. We will showcase the welfare schemes and transformational changes brought in by our Chief Minister. I will explain to KTR personally,” Roja said.
