He said, “KCR has fulfilled the six-decade-long aspiration of continuing the movement without hesitation and risking his own life. The two national parties, the Congress and the BJP, have played with the sentiments of the people. Under the leadership of KCR, the last seven years of government, Telangana was making tremendous progress."
He recalled that many trips they had made to Delhi continuously for the formation of Telangana, starting with the car rally organised in the early days of the party.
