Left Parties Candidate for Warangal Lok Sabha by-election Professor Gali Vinod Kumar alleges Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao tapped his phone to know details about with whom he has been in touch. Speaking at the public meeting in Parakala, Vinod Kumar said: "As I was a Strong Candidate, My Phone has been tapped. While other party candidates have thousands of crores assets, I have hundreds of cases filed against me during the Telangana Movement (he sheds tears)".
Mr.Kumar also spoke about his humble upbringing from being the son of a daily wager to growing as a principal of an educational institution. TRS named Pasunuri Dayakar as party candidate for Warangal by-poll. On the other hand, Congress preferred former MP Rajaiah as its candidate. BJP is yet to announce its candidate.
