After Congress leader Komatireddy Venkat Reddy accepted the challenge of Telangana caretaker minister K T Rama Rao to quit politics in case of failure to win the upcoming Assembly elections, another Congress leader too has done the same.
Former minister Shabbir Ali on Sunday said that he was accepting KTR's challenge, and that he would quit politics if his party did not come to power after the upcoming elections.
Shabbir Ali asked KTR to be ready to quit politics since the TRS would lose the elections. He claimed that the grand alliance of opposition parties was formed primarily to end the feudal rule of KCR in Telangana and restore democracy in the state.
Alleging that the father-son duo of KCR and KTR were lying a lot in the state, Shabbir Ali pointed out that KCR had not fulfilled his promise of making a Dalit the CM of the state, and had also broken his oath that he would not seek votes without providing drinking water to every household through Mission Bhagiratha. It was to rescue the state from such liars that the alliance was formed though it needed compromises from all the parties involved and several leaders, he said.
