TDP senior leader Varla Ramaiah became the TRP item for Telugu news channels’ continuous scrolls and yet-to-come debates. After a student ignored the presence of the TDP leader (and APSRTC Chairman), Ramaiah asked the student whether he belongs to SC or ST.
When the student said he belongs to ‘Maadiga’(SC) caste, Ramaiah quickly said that you will not be of any use to your father, and most likely you wouldn’t have even written the exam.
These comments quickly engulfed the TV news channels, which are every hungry for sensational news. It did not take long for TDP Supremo CBN to respond to the casteist remarks by Varla Ramaiah. Close sources to the TDP party confirmed that CBN gave a strong warning to Varla Ramaiah, stating that these kind of incidents are damaging the party’s reputation, and image among the general public.
SC and ST Organizations have already raged a war against Varla Ramaiah. They are likely filing a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on the incident today. It feels as if people from ‘one caste’ are worth, and rest all are fit-for-nothing for the TDP leaders.
