Rosaiah lashes out at Kaka, demands apology

Former chief minister K Rosaiah on Wednesday took serious objection to Congress Working Committee member G Venkataswamy’s comments on All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi, who demanded her to relinquish her post.

Talking to media persons at Congress Legislature Party office, the former chief minister condemned Mr Venkataswamy’s remarks and demanded that he withdraw his comments immediately and apologise to Ms Sonia Gandhi.

Mr Rosaiah said that the senior Congress leader, after enjoying various positions in the Congress, forgot the party principles and was now making baseless allegations against Ms Sonia Gandhi and her leadership abilities.

“Kaka should not have made such serious remarks against Ms Sonia Gandhi’s leadership considering his seniority and position in the CWC. The remarks are not suitable to his position,” the former chief minister stated.

“If he has any objections over alliance with the Praja Rajyam Party, he could have raised those in the party fora. Instead of issuing statements before the media and damaging the party image and Ms Gandhi’s personal image, he could have raised them before the CWC,” he stated.

Mr Rosaiah further questioned why Mr Venkataswamy had not raised objections to Ms Sonia Gandhi’s candidature as party president during the party’s plenary session.
