Rao said that, “Chandrababu is envious of Hyderabad as it was named as Second Best City across the World to visit in 2015. Hence, He is chalking out a conspiracy to deprive Telangana its share of drinking water. Naidu’s only aim to witness the day Brand Hyderabad takes a beating. Naidu claims he is sole person behind Hyderabad development, Preaches Hyderabad belongs to everyone, Calls it a Joint Capital; Both Telangana & AP are like two eyes for him. But, his action was contrast to what he speaks”.
The minister accused Andhra CM of writing letters to Centre and lobbying in New Delhi targeting drinking water supply in Hyderabad. Rao also alleged that Naidu had never bothered to resolve water crisis in Hyderabad.
