Hyderabad: The recent address by the Governor in the Assembly has sparked controversy, drawing a sharp response from Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavitha. She criticised the prevailing trend of blaming democratically elected governments in the country.

Kavitha, the daughter of former Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, expressed her concerns on Saturday, stating, "Unfortunately, it has become a precedent in the country today to continually blame democratically elected governments. In our Governor's speech yesterday, after the new government in Telangana was elected, the previous governments were maligned in quite harsh terms."

The controversy stemmed from Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan's remarks on Friday, where she mentioned that the state, after the Congress emerged victorious in the Telangana elections, had "liberated themselves from 'autocratic rule.'"

Regarding her party's response, Kavitha underlined that they initially submitted a 'Motion of Amendment' to the Governor's address. However, they withdrew it upon the request of the Telangana government, emphasizing the need for cooperation as it was the first day of the new government.

"Governors and Governments should be very careful in choosing their terms and terminology because it reflects upon the mandate given by the people, which is not fair," Kavitha asserted.

Despite the strong opposition to the Governor's speech in the Assembly, Kavitha also highlighted their cooperative stance, stating, "So, we strongly protest the Governor's speech that was delivered yesterday in the Assembly. But, in the spirit of cooperation, governance, and Telangana's development, we expressed our protest but cooperated with the government."
