When KCR, Harish Rao Cried …


It’s very difficult to forget the memories of a good friend. Even the toughest melt down and end up being misty eyed while talking about the departed friend. Memories of Dubbak’s departed MLA Solipeta Ramalinga Reddy have brought tears to both CM KCR and Finance Minister Harish Rao.

KCR broke down on seeing the mortal remains of Ramalinga Reddy. He recalled his long association with Ramalinga Reddy. Recently, Harish Rao was in Dubbak to disburse financial assistance under Kalyana Lakshmi and Shadi Mubarak schemes. The cheques carried the signature of Solipeta Ramalinga Reddy. He had signed them before he passed away. While distributing them, Harish Rao turned emotional and shed copious tears.

Harish Rao recalled his association with Solipeta and talked about latter’s contribution to the Telangana statehood movement. He also said that he would strive to fulfil the dreams of his friend and associate Solipeta. He said he would also fulfil the promises made by Solipeta to the people of his constituency.

Dubbak constituency will soon have a byelection and TRS sources said that Solipeta’s son would be fielded by the TRS. The BJP and the Congress too have decided to field candidates for the bypolls.
