It is said that politics makes for strange bedfellows, and that politicians can go to any extent to win. The Congress candidate from the Chevella Assembly constituency K S Ratnam, who got down on his knees before his rival today, is no exception.
Ratnam, who was given the ticket for the Chevella Assembly constituency, met his party colleague and rebel candidate for the seat Venkat Swamy, genuflected before him with folded hands, and pleaded with him for his cooperation in the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections.
The images of Ratnam bowing before Swamy went viral on the social media.
Earlier, Swamy was denied the Chevella Assembly constituency ticket in favour of Ratnam, who had joined the Congress recently after quitting the ruling TRS. Swamy, who was enraged by the turn of events, decided to ignore all kinds of party activities.
Keeping this in mind, Ratnam reached out to Swamy and sought his help by genuflecting in front of him. Moved by this, Swamy hugged and blessed Ratnam.
