The state IT minister earlier accused Kumar of having a habit to chew tobacco. Dismissing the allegation, Kumar said it is KTR who is addicted to drugs.

"KTR says I chew tobacco. It's a blatant lie. KTR is addicted to drugs. I'm ready to offer my blood samples for test to prove that I don’t consume tobacco. Does KTR have guts to give his blood&hair samples to prove he doesn’t consume drugs?" Kumar said addressing a gathering in Telangana's Nirmal district.

The BJP state president also hit out at chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for not attending the meeting for state chief ministers and political party heads to share their views on India becoming the head of G-20 nations.

Kumar said that it was because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the poor and downtrodden were able to get justice. He also demanded the Telangana government to observe B R Ambedkar's birth anniversary every year in April for a week.

"The credit of making Ram Nath Kovind, a Dalit leader, as the President of India and the installation of the Ambedkar statue in Parliament goes to Modi," he said.
