Telangana Minister K Taraka Rama Rao lambasted AP CM Chandrababu Naidu by quoting Gautham Pingala's book, which said that Hyderabad state that existed as a separate state from 1948-1952 was a revenue surplus state before merging. He said, "I don't know if he was born or not at that time. DPR Vittal wrote two books. Telangana surpluses, a case study and Telangana - Still surplus written in 1968, 2001. I'll send him copies of these books. Telangana is already surplus, I don't know how Telangana achieved surplus during Chandrababu's term as CM."
