Hyderabad | 10th April 2019
The Election Commission has issued a notice to TRS supremo and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for his supposedly derogatory comments on Hindus in March.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad Telangana President Rama Raju filed a complaint with the EC that the Chief Minister had made derogatory remarks against Hindus during an election campaign speech in Karimnagar on March 17.

During the meeting, KCR had said, "Manam ee Hindu gallu, bondu gallu... ee dikkumalina daridram galla chethilo padi vivavilalaaduthunnadhi ee desam."

Rama Raju claimed in his complaint to the EC that the TRS boss had insulted and hurt the sentiments of the Hindus by his comments. With his remarks against a particular religion, KCR had violated the poll code, Raju said.

The EC, after obtaining an English translation of the comments, decided that they indeed had the potential to cause religious strife, and served notice to the Chief Minister on Tuesday and asked him to reply by 5 pm of the day after the Lok Sabha polls in Telangana (April 12).
