He said hierarchy is possible only in monarchy and not in a democratic government referring to the threatening strategies of Jagan to topple the peoples elected party.
Prior to the speech supporters of YSR congress destroyed chairs and created commotion at the public meeting raising slogans ‘YSR Johar’. He quoted that even Rahul was denied the post of Prime Minister, inspite of the Gandhi family, contributing immensely for the development of the nation.
