Twitter battle reaches court: KTR files defamation suit against TPCC chief Revanth Reddy

Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Working President and MAUD minister KT Rama has filed a defamation case in the High Court of Telangana against Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President A Revanth Reddy after Twitter banter went horribly wrong.

The two leaders were at loggerheads for some time now. The online banter turned abusive after Revanth Reddy asked KTR to take a drug test to create awareness.

"To create awareness in the youth on increasing drug menace in the country…I have started the #WhiteChallenge and @KVishReddy has graciously accepted …Both of us will be waiting for @KTRTRS at Amaraveerula Sthupam today at 12 noon," he tweeted

Replying to Revanth Reddy's tweet, KTR took a dig over a cash-for-vote scam. "I am ready for any test and will travel to AIIMS Delhi if Rahul Gandhi is willing to join. It's below my dignity to do it with Cherlapally jail alumni. If I take the test & get a clean chit, will you apologize & quit your posts? Are you ready for a lie detector test on #Note4Vote," tweeted KTR.

To which Revanth Reddy said that he is ready for the lie detector test along with Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. "Indicate time and place @KTRTRS for lie detector test along with KCR on CBI cases on corruption charges in Sahara Provident Fund and ESI hospital construction scandals. #WhiteChallenge," alleged Revanth Reddy.

After that, KTR said that he has started the legal process and filed a defamation suit against Revanth. "Today I have invoked the legal process & filed a suit for defamation and injunction before the Hon'ble court. I am confident that the Court process will clinchingly vindicate the falsity of the canards& lies spread against me and the culprits will be brought to book appropriately," tweeted KTR.
