HYDERABAD: The outburst of Congress MP V. Hanumantha Rao against YSR’s close aide K.V.P. Ramachandra Rao has not gone down well in the party with the late Chief Minister’s followers hitting out at the senior leader.

At a press conference on Wednesday, three MLCs — D. Rajeswar Rao, Pulla Padmavati and Kanukula Janardhan Reddy — questioned the authority of Mr. Hanumantha Rao to criticise the Ministers and making uncalled for remarks against Dr. Ramachandra Rao.

The three MLCs said leaders such as Mr. Hanumantha Rao, Congress Working Committee member K. Keshava Rao and APCC spokesperson K. Mruthyunajam had targeted late YSR and KVP.
