Nirmala Sitharaman confronts KTR on, KCR’s comments on PM Modi


Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman came down to Hyderabad for the inaugural ceremony of ‘Boeing Aircraft Parts Manufacturing Unit’. Tata Group Former Chairman Ratan Tata, and Telangana IT Minister K Taraka Rama Rao were also present at the ceremony.

Post the inaugural ceremony, Nirmala Sitharaman spoke to the media. ‘After I came to know about the KCR’s comments on PM Modi, I immediately called KTR. I was left in a dilemma whether to even come for this inaugural function or not. When asked justification over KCR’s comments, KTR said that it might have been a slip of the tongue. He tried to explain me about the whole thing, and in what context his father, CM KCR might have uttered the words.

Even before I board the flight to Hyderabad, I spoke to KTR. Despite Telangana CM’s reference to the Prime Minister in a singular tone. The only reason I flew down to Hyderabad for today’s inaugural meeting is the commitment towards Make in India program launched by the Prime Minister.

Though KTR claims it to be a slip of a tongue, it would have been proper on behalf of CM KCR, if he had explained about that incident by himself.’

Though this doesn’t come as a surprise, Nirmala Sitharaman’s over-enthusiastic nature to uphold the dignity of the PM surely raised some eyebrows.
