Finance Minister Etala Rajender on Tuesday claimed that the incident of two youth attempting suicide in Karimnagar district was not linked to either TRS party of Telangana Government.
Speaking to media persons after participating in the Teachers’ Day Celebrations in Karimnagar, the minister expressed concern over the suicide attemp by Mahankali Srinivas (27) and Yalala Parushramulu (26) of Gudem village of Bejjanki mandal from Siddipet district before the office of TRS legislator Rasmayi Balakishan.

He said that the State Government had constituted a Fast Track Court to try the case of rape of a Dalit girl in Chellore of Karimnagar district and the culprits were convicted for 20 years imprisonment after the trial which concluded in nearly 20 months.The minister accused the Congress and BJP of defaming the TRS Government by politicising the issue.
