Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya is one politician who is equidistant to all the political parties. He never has any issue with any parties. As a result, the Union Minister used to attend all the government programs of TRS. Even several leaders of BJP used to be hurt with Dattatreya’s friendship with TRS.
However Dattatreya paid price. A case was registered on him in relation to Dalit student, Rohit Vemula’s suicide. There is no mention of Dattatreya’s name even in Rohit’s suicide note. But his name was included in the case to corner TDP-BJP ahead of the GHMC elections.
Further, Telangana Jagruthi led by KCR’s daughter, Kalvakuntla Kavitha is staging protesting demanding Dattatreya’s ousting from the union cabinet. BJP leaders are saying that the Secunderabad MP is paying price for moving close with the ruling party.
