Lokesh at it again; says KCR trying to take away Machilipatnam port to Telangana

Telugu Desam Party general secretary and IT Minister Nara Lokesh has again caught the attention of social media with his blooper during a roadshow in the Mangalagiri Assembly constituency from where he is contesting.

He triggered a big wave of trolling on social media with his slip-of-the-tongue oneliners which he time and again lets out.

In a bid to stoke Andhra sentiment, Mr. Lokesh said that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao "was trying to take away the Machilipatnam port to Telangana."

Expectedly, social media began trolling him and cracked jokes on him.

"As Telangana doesn’t have a coastline, how can the TS government shift the Machilipatnam port? Better Mr. Lokesh look at the map." These were some of the comments.

Mr. Lokesh seems to have failed to convey that the Telangana government was allegedly trying to get a hold on the Machilipatnam port.

Another recent shocker from Mr. Lokesh was when the leader said he was ‘elated’ (paravasinchanu) when he came to know about the death of former MP Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy. What he meant to say that he was saddened with the death but ended saying something totally different.
