Why do we need the Congress,” Harish asked the participants.

Inspects helipad

Later in the evening, Harish inspected the helipad at Gajwel.

Neither DK Sivakumar nor poll strategist Prashant Kishor could affect KCR, whom he likened to an AK-47. He said KCR would win by a margin of 1 lakh votes from Gajwel and that Gajwel people eagerly await the opportunity to vote for KCR, claiming that the CM transformed the previously drought-prone area through KLIS.

Traitors uniting against TS: minister
