TPJAC leader denies remarks against Minister Geetha Reddy
Telangana Political Joint Action Committee(TPJAC) Chairman Prof M Kodandaram today clarified that he had not made any derogatory remarks against Andhra Pradesh Heavy Industries Minister Geetha Reddy.
Talking to reporters, Prof Kodandaram alleged that a section of the media has wrongly projected his statement that he made about Geetha Reddy's mother Eshwar Bai.
He said he praised Eshwar Bai's struggle for the cause of Telangana and asked Geetha Reddy to emulate her mother and join the statehood movement.
However, the same statement was twisted by a vernacular newspaper and presented it in a bad light, he pointed out.
Earlier, Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS) activists and other dalit organisation gheraoed Kodandaram and demanded he tender an unconditional apology to the Minister and Dalits whose sentiments were hurt due to his statement.
Prof Kodandaram has offered his apologies if his remarks have hurt any individual or community.
