Renaming Karimnagar Yogi's fascination: TRS hits back at BJP
Hyderabad: The Telangana Rashtra Samiti on Thursday pooh-poohed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's statement on renaming Karimnagar if the BJP came to power in Telangana, saying it's a non-issue.
Vinod Kumar, retorted on Adityanath's renaming pitch
"That's nobody's agenda in Karimnagar," the Deputy Leader of TRS in Lok Sabha, B Vinod Kumar, retorted on Adityanath's renaming pitch.
"It's his (Adityanath's) own fascination. It's in nobody's thoughts in Karimnagar. No body asked for it (renaming). It's for the first time that I have heard (somebody favouring name change)," the Karimnagar MP said.
Addressing an election rally on Wednesday at Karimnagar in the poll-bound Telangana, Adityanath said, "If the BJP comes to power in Telangana then BJP will work for renaming Karimnagar district into 'Karipuram' and respect your sentiments."
