' TDP leaders have arrived in flood-ravaged Uttarakhand to show off', alleges Congress

New Delhi, June 26 (ANI): Amid sharp criticism from various quarters over the spar at Dehradun Airport, Congress Party on Wednesday accused the Telegu Desam Party (TDP) of attempting to take credit for the relief and rescue operations in the flood-hit state.

"Our people have climbed their way to the extreme lands and these people have just come to show off, the like of Chandrababu Naidu and his partymen. Are they humans? They don't posses a soul. They are corrupt and want to politicise issues," said Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary.

"Our leaders have been out there at ground zero and working for the people to rescue them," she added.

TDP and the Congress Party leaders entered into a squabble at the Dehradun Airport earlier this evening over who will fly the victims back home.

Members of the Congress and the TDP pushed each other to grab a batch of people who were brought to the airport after being rescued. Both parties wanted to fly home the survivors, who are from Andhra Pradesh.

The Telugu Desam was about to take the flood victims to Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam when Congress MP V. Hanumantha Rao barged in.

An argument later broke out between and V. Hanumantha Rao and TDP MP Ramesh Rathod. They were later seen exchanging angry words following which the police had to intervene to separate the duo.

Instead of apologizing, the leaders of the two political outfits later indulged in petty blame game. (ANI)
