Hyderabad: TRS working president and IT minister K.T. Rama Rao on Thursday responded to TPCC chief Revanth Reddy's readiness for a debate with him on TRS government's achievements in the agriculture sector over the past seven years.
While interacting with netizens as part of #AskKTR session on Twitter, a user asked Rao to debate with Revanth to which he replied, "Let him debate with MLA Elvis Stephenson garu. I don’t get into debates with criminals and 420s like him."
It may be recalled that Rao recently threw an open challenge to Congress and BJP for a debate with him on agriculture, which was accepted by Revanth.
From politics to administration and from movies to sports, Rao answered it all on the two-hour live show.
Responding to questions on lockdown and night curfew, KTR said "It will all depend on the number of cases and what health officials advise the government."

On how his party would tackle the hate propaganda and fake news spread by the opposition, Rao stated that the peple of Telangana were smart enough to read between the lines.
"I am happy to be in Telangana serving my state," he said of his views about entering national politics.
Rao stated that the current trend in Uttar Pradesh was towards Samajwadi Party. He said this in the backdrop of three incumbent ministers and six MLAs from BJP leaving the party in the last two days.
"Ignoring idiocy is best," is all that Rao had to say about Telangana BJP leaders, when asked for his response to their comments that Pune was a better city than Hyderabad.
With regard to tackling BJP in Telangana, he said that his party would continue to focus on good governance and development.
On BJP’s proposed move to rename the city Bhagyanagar, Rao rubbished them all saying they were all "silly political stunts."
The minister also took up many administrative queries and issues during the session. On the illegal road closures in Secunderabad, he said that the issue will be taken to the next level across forums, including in the Parliament.
