Saturday happens to be the 45th birthday of Telangana Rashtra Samithi working president and state information technology and industries minister K T Rama Rao.
Wishes have been pouring in from all quarters in the form of tweets, text messages and even front page advertisements in the newspapers by some enthusiastic party leaders.
But the biggest surprise for KTR was a letter purported to have been written by media baron and Ramoji Group chairman Ch Ramoji Rao, showering praises on him and his leadership abilities.
There is no confirmation as to whether the letter was really written by Ramoji Rao or not, as the contents have not appeared in any mainstream media. It appeared only in some sections of social media.
The letter, with the letter head which looks like original, has the signature of Ramoji Rao as well. Greatandhra.com could not vouch for its authenticity.
The content of the letter shows how Ramoji Rao is trying to impress KTR with a lot of praises and predict that he is going to lead the state soon. He even went to the extent of wishing KTR showing a new direction to the country as well.
Stating that KTR has grown into a shrewd politician within no time with rare leadership qualities and unusual oratorical skills, Ramoji Rao said “I have been keenly observing your style of functioning and your progress and I am proud to say that you have all the abilities of a top class leader.”
He went on to say that KTR’s father – chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao – must be feeling proud to have you as a son, who have been striving day and night to transform Telangana into a No. 1 state in the country.
“After all, every father wants his son to be more efficient than him,” he said.
The media baron also appreciated KTR for taking initiative in extending immediate relief to the people who were in distress.
“Your humanitarian gestures are quite laudable. It is no exaggeration to say that there is no parallel for you in the country in administrative skills,” he said.
Ramoji Rao signed off, saying: “Not just the state, the entire country needs a new-generation leader like you. On this happy occasion of your birthday, I sincerely wish you will grow gradually to the stage of providing leadership to the entire country.”
