The Intelligence Test
KCR visits Chandrababu Naidu’s house in Jubilee Hills.
Over tea and snacks, he asks Naidu what his leadership philosophy is.
Naidu says it is to surround himself with intelligent people.
KCR asks how he would know if they are really intelligent.
“I do so by asking them the right questions,” says Naidu.
“Allow me to demonstrate.”
KCR watches as Naidu phones Raghavulu and says, “Raghavulu Garu, please answer this question: Your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister.
Who is it?” Raghavulu immediately replies, “It's me!” “Correct.
Thank you and goodbye, Raghavulu Garu,” says Naidu.
He hangs up and says to KCR, “Did you get that, KCR?” KCR nods: “Yes. Thanks a lot.
I`ll definitely adopt your philosophy.
” KCR goes home and decides to put his son Rama Rao to the test.
He summons Rama Rao and says, “Son, your mother has a child, and I have a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister.
Who is it?” KCR’s son is puzzled and finally asks, “Can I think about it and get back to you?” He goes back to his room and immediately calls a meeting of the TRS party executive, and they puzzle over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up with an answer.
Finally, Rama Rao calls his cousin Harish Rao and explains the problem. “Harish, your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister.
Who is it?” Harish answers immediately, “It`s me, of course.”
Much relieved, KCR’s son rushes back to his father and exclaims, “I know the answer! I know who it is! It`s our Harish!” And KCR replies in disgust, “Wrong, it’s B V Raghavulu!”
