KCR takes Rahuls name often. Who is Rahul? Read this to know...

Rahul. This is a name that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has uttered quite a few times at his famous Coronavirus-related press conferences, leaving many wondering as to who this "Rahul" is. If you too are one of them, here is the answer.

Rahul is a senior correspondent with the English-language daily The Hindu. Known for his impeccable professionalism, he has been identified by his first name by several political bigwigs, KCR being only the latest of them. Being a senior, he has been quite a constant at the CMO.

It's said that Rahul was a classmate of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy. As such, the Congress CM used to be quite friendly with him. On one occasion, while on a visit to a slum, when an official tried to jostle Rahul in the presence of the CM, Kiran Kumar Reddy sternly told the official that Rahul is important to him.

A report says that KCR once stopped by at the building of the Hyderabad office of The Hindu to invite Rahul over to his swearing-in ceremony. However, the senior journalist refused to get into the CM's car, saying that he had to complete some pending work at the newspaper. journalists look up to Rahul's integrity, it seems!
