He said the by-elections that will be held after his resignation will be contested between the people of Huzurabad and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR). He further mentioned that in Telangana the only thing that is running is nepotism politics of KCR.
"There is only family rule and nepotistic politics happening in Telangana under Chief Minister KCR. There are no democratic values in the state and the whole system of the state has been scraped. I hoped that after the Telangana state was formed, that the state would have a democratic system. But the democratic system is clearly not visible in the state now."
