Political quotes have become the flavour of the season, as rival politicians engage in a war of words in the ongoing Parkal bypoll campaign.
The nature of the political quotes differs from speaker to speaker and context to context. While few are serious in nature, a few are thought provoking and the rest are pun intended. A few related to ongoing CBI investigation is defensive in nature. Here are a few quotes of Tuesday: “Every vote cast in favour of BJP in Parkal will strengthen communalism”. “There is a possibility for imposition of president rule in the state after the bypolls,” said CPI state secretary K. Narayana during his campaign in favour of TRS in Parkal.
“I have not violated any law” IT minister Ponnala Lakshamaiah, on Tuesday morning before leaving for Hyderabad on getting CBI summons in disproportionate assets cases. “BJP chief G. Kishan Reddy and party nominee Dr P. Vijaychandra Reddy never spoke against YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jagan and party nominee Ms Konda Surekha during bypoll campaign so far,” said TRS senior leader T. Harish Rao, hinting at collusion between them.
“BJP is a party known for three issues: Ram mandir, Article 370 and common civil code,” said TRS Medak in-charge K. Rajaiah Yadav, on BJP’s poor record on communal harmony.
“TD chief N. Chandrababu Naidu would lose both eyes after bypolls,” said BJP chief Kishan Reddy, referring to Mr Naidu’s two-eyed theory. “Let the law take its course,” said government chief whip Gandra Venkata Ramana Reddy, on argument of Cabinet’s collective responsibility regarding 26 GOs.
