I do not know what the conspiracy against me is. I do not know about the conspiracy politics” he said.
Meanwhile, Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister Yanamala Ramkrishnudu alleged that issuing of Arrest Warrant to Chief Minister by a Court in Maharashtra is part of BJP’s conspiracy politics to weaken the Telugu Desam Party.
