This move comes after KTR threatened Sanjay with legal action on Thursday.

“BS Kumar, if you don’t stop this ludicrous, baseless & irresponsible allegations, I’ll be constrained to take legal action,” tweeted KTR responding to Sanjay’s allegation that due to the minister’s negligence, 27 intermediate students committed suicide. He demanded the BJP leader to either prove his allegation or publicly apologise.

During his ongoing ‘Praja sangrama yatra’, Sanjay had made the allegation while referring to the suicides of intermediate students in 2019 allegedly due to the bungling in evaluation of answer sheets and publication of results.

However, after re-verification of the answer sheets of these students, Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) denied that the suicides were related any technical errors in processing of the results.
