In order to highlight the divergence between telangana and andhra pradesh politics, ktr advocated holding the protests in that state. He forewarned that interruptions in the IT corridor might result from demonstrations in hyderabad and possibly develop into problems with law and order. ktr cited the telangana movement's past, emphasising that protests were still prohibited in the IT corridor at the time.
He made it clear that while people were free to express their views on Chandrababu Naidu's incarceration, telangana was not involved and that the issue was primarily one between two political parties. ktr questioned the need for protests in hyderabad, highlighting how delicate the subject was. He emphasised that Chandrababu Naidu's detention was a legal matter that was under the authority of the court and that the results will be decided in accordance with the law.
Furthermore, ktr emphasised that he still had cordial relationships with a number of Andhra Pradeshi politicians, demonstrating that there was no personal animosity between him and the state.
