Hyderabad:  Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy today asked Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to review his decision on supporting BJP candidate Ram Nath Kovind in the Presidential election. Speaking after distributing 'Ramzan Ration Kits' among poor Muslims at Gandhi Bhavan here today, Mr Reddy said that the entire country would be in danger if a person with communal mindset gains control of Rashtrapati Bhavan. He alleged that Mr Ram Nath Kovind has a history of speaking against Muslims, Christians and other minorities and said electing him as President would only aggravate the communal atmosphere in the country and those nuturing hatred on minor issues would get emboldened in carrying out attacks on minorities. Mr Reddy asked Mr Rao to understand the implications of his support to Mr Ram Nath Kovind's candidature. He said that the TRS, which calls itself a pro-minority party, should restrain itself from supporting him who practices RSS ideology of hatred and divisive politics. He ridiculed Chief Minister's claim that TRS was supporting Mr Kovind's candidature in lieu of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's help for 12 per cent Muslim reservation in Telangana. The TPCC President said Muslims of Telangana would lose existing 4 per cent reservation if Mr Ram Nath Kovind gets elected with the support of TRS. He said UPA candidate former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar was the best candidate for the post of President of India. He said Mr Rao should not forget the role played by Meira Kumar in formation of Telangana. Earlier, Mr Reddy distributed 'Ration Kits' consisting of 5 Kg Rice, 1 kg Sugar, 1 litre Milk, 1 kg Sevaiyyan and dry fruits. The 'Ration Kits' were distributed at Gandhi Bhavan and also at Khilwat Grounds in the Old City.
