Jails, police cases and being hit by lathis were not new to nationalists, he said.
Kumar alleged the TRS and MIM have reached a clandestine understanding to emerge successful in municipal elections in Telangana using the Muslim vote bank by opposing the CAA.
"The people of Warangal have got the opportunity to give a verdict in the municipal and corporation elections (to say) that TRS and MIM, you have no place on this land of Warangal, you go to Pakistan if necessary,Bangladesh or Afghanistan...," he told the gathering.
He appealed to the people to reach out to every home with the facts regarding CAA and step up their campaign till the "pseudo secularists" were taught a lesson for attempting to"spread false information".
