What do you have to say about the increased vote percentage in the state this time?

The voting percent will increase even more in this round because people are voting to wipe out the Congress government.

Your take on a section of people saying you are an outsider?

This allegation on me was because of Azharuddin who is from Andra Pradesh. Listen to the way he speaks, it is Hyderabadi Hindi. My forefathers are from Ajmer who later shifted to Delhi.

Don’t you think Jagmohan who is from Meena community and from a neighbouring area has stronger chances of winning?

People this time are voting above caste lines. They want to see BJP government. Even Meenas are supporting me.

Azharuddin’s wife Sangeeta Bijlani is pulling lot of crowds during her roadshows. Isn’t that star appeal missing in your campaigning?

Look, you know how it is, youths come out to see a good looking and fair star but that doesn’t turn into votes.
