TIRUPATI: Nandamuri Harikrishna, Polit Bureau member of the Telugu Desam Party has said that the days of the Congress were numbered. The actor-turned-politician said that the time has come for the people of Andhra Pradesh to rededicate themselves to the cause of the Telugu self-respect which the TDP scion late N.T. Rama Rao stood for and dump the Congress which indulged in a largescale ‘looting’ of the exchequer and tax-payers money, completely ditching the people after promising them the moon.
He was participating as the chief guest at a function under the banner of the TDP’s students wing-- Telugu Naidu Students Federation (TNSF) to give away the NTR Puraskars to the successful students in the Edcet-2007. He said the field of Information Technology which was on a fast-track mode during Chandrababu Naidu’s regime was now facing a ‘slow down’ and lashed at the Congress for trying to muzzle the media and the Opposition.
