Telangana CM I Too Have No Birth Certificate

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao on Saturday revealed in the state Assembly that he too has no birth certificate. “When I myself don’t have a birth certificate, how can I produce the certificate of my father,” asked Rao, apparently referring to the new format of the National Population Register (NPR), which is set to be rolled out from April 1. “It is causing concern to me also. I was born in my house in the village. There were no hospitals then. The village elder used to write a ‘Janma Nama’ which carried no official seal,” said 66-year-old KCR, as the Chief Minister is popularly known. “When I was born, we had 580 acres of land and a building. When I can’t produce my birth certificate, how will the Dalits, tribals and poor produce their certificates,” he asked. Speaking on the issue in the House for the second time in the day, KCR said Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has some firm commitments and principles on which it would never compromise
