Mr Reddy made the interesting remark about a few leaders of TRS and said that they are willfully supporting the RTC strike from the backdoor, a Telugu daily said.

With the statement hitting the streets, the speculation is rife over the possible names of those leaders who are supporting the RTC strike.
