Earlier on his visit to Hyderabad, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said in the press conference that “People who feel that this is a ‘galli election’ (referring to KTR’s remark), they have forgotten to clean those gallis (lanes), that is the reason they have a problem with national leaders campaigning.”
