Telangana Rashtra Samithi(TRS) supremo K Chandrasekhar Rao said that when Bhartiya Janata Party(BJP) national president Amit Shah had made irresponsible remarks, he had asked him to prove his claims or apologise unconditionally. He had also said he would quit if he substantiated the remarks made against the gover nment.

Throwing a challenge at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said in English, “Mr Narendra Modi, there is no power problem in Telangana. You can’t lie and level false allegations against the chief minister of the state. I am not scared of anyone and that is why I am responding in English so that Modi gets the message. Am I Chandrababu Naidu to be scared?”

Chandrasekhar Rao also said that Narendra Modi and Naidu had hatched a conspiracy to dethrone the TRS government in 2014 and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen MP Asaduddin Owaisi had informed him about it.
