Dharmana Prasada Rao has been a political veteran and has a lot of respect in political circles. However, his recent activities have become controversial, especially his statements against his own party, which have become the talk of the town. Insiders say that Dharmana’s statements are an impact of his brother, Dharmana Krishna Das being given more preference by the YSRCP, while he’s not even being offered a Ministerial post in the upcoming reshuffling.
After the recent statements he made on dumping garbage in front of houses, in case people refuse to pay garbage tax, Dharmana has now made another set of controversial statements. He said that schemes like employment guarantees were useless and that such schemes were against the interest of the country. Dharmana also said that paddy cultivation is a wasteful exercise, directly contradicting the statements made by his party members, who said that the government would buy every grain harvested.
Dharmana remained mostly silent after his brother was made the Deputy CM, and maintained a low profile, but in the past few weeks, the politician has been making a lot of statements that are embarrassing the YSRCP. It is now to be seen what will happen in the future.
