When asked if Telangana and Andhra Pradesh had been competing with each other since bifurcation, KCR said that there was no need for comparing the two states, claiming that Telangana was way ahead.
The CM also said that Hyderabad had been a developed city that saw destruction due to the ‘rulers’ of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh state.

“I can’t take undue credit for Microsoft being here (in Hyderabad). In fact, all credit goes to Chandrababu Naidu garu. He definitely has done his best. In fact, when Hyderabad was not as well-known as it is today in Information Technology space, he went out all the way to Bill Gates, convinced him and eventually the development centre (of Microsoft) happened about 17 years ago. So, all credit to him for that,” KTR was quoted as saying.
