Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao on Friday took a jibe against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over the issue of corruption in the state. KT Rama Rao said he doesn't consider Rahul Gandhi as a leader but a reader and he just read scripts without paying attention to what is written. The remarks by the Telangana minister come ahead of the assembly elections to the 119-member assembly of the state on 30 November in which BRS, Congress, and BJP are the giants contesting against each other.

"Rahul Gandhi is a leader who doesn't do homework but reads the script of local leaders and goes back. I don't consider him a leader but a reader. He starts reading out scripts & doesn't pay attention to what has been written...Rahul Gandhi says that corruption has increased in Telangana. His PCC chief (Revanth Reddy) is more dangerous than Dawood Ibrahim and Charles Sobhraj. Rahul Gandhi is innocent, so he doesn't know..." BRS leader KT Rama Rao told news agency ANI.
