37 PCs and still going strong

Congress MLA from Secunderabad Cantonment P.Shankar Rao may achieve a unique distinction in the next few days, if his spree of holding press conferences continues further.Dr. Rao, a former Minister, who is aspiring for a berth in Chief Minister K. Rosaiah's Cabinet, addressed his 37 {+t} {+h} consecutive press conference in as many days in the Assembly premises. From commenting on Government programmes, defending the Chief Minister to launching vitriolic attack on late YSR and his son Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy, the senior Congress leader has become a regular fixture at the Congress Legislature Party office addressing press conferences. The Media Point in the Assembly has become a focal point for the pro and anti-YSR groups to attack each other. The eagerness to be seen on the television channels appears to have made Congressmen vie with each other to indulge in mutual acrimony.
