Shankar Rao, a Congress legislator from Andhra Pradesh, has decided to install a nine feet statue of Sonia Gandhi as 'Telangana Talli' (Telangana mother) as a mark of gratitude for being the mover behind UPA government's decision to create a Telangana state. The statue is slated to be installed at what Dr Rao intends to call the 'Sonia Gandhi Shanti Vanam', near the Bangalore-Hyderabad highway.

Picture courtesy Gulail.com which says:"Gulail has accessed about a dozen pictures of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi present at the first edition of Kutch Sharad Utsav in October 2005. In one of the pictures Modi could be seen engaged in an animated conversation with IAS Officer Pradeep Sharma and the woman architect from Bangalore whom Gulail had renamed Madhuri to protect her identity when it had released hundreds of telephonic conversations between Amit Shah and former IPS officer GL Singhal. These pictures raise a serious question mark about the credibility of the explanation put forth both by Madhuri’s father PremlalSoni and the BJP that only Premalal was known to Modi and it was he who had requested the CM to ‘take care’ of his daughter in 2009 when the illegal snooping operation was mounted. The pictures show that Modi knew Madhuri for at least five years before his state machinery mounted an illegal round the clock vigil on the young woman in August 2009. It also confirms that part of the affidavit filed by Sharma in the Supreme Court in which he had alleged that Madhurihad visited Modi when he came to inaugurate the ‘Sharad Utsav’ in October 2005. Sharma served as the collector of Kachchh district between 2003 and 2005."
