Telugu people in Karnataka gathered in huge numbers at Bengaluru airport today, to welcome Chandrababu, who is attending the swearing-in ceremony of Kumaraswamy, as Karnataka Chief Minister (CM), this evening. Holding flags and raising slogans of 'Chandrababu Zindabad,' Telugus mobbed Chandrababu as soon as he arrived at the airport. Chandrababu greeted them with folded hands. They said that they had heeded his call and voted against BJP. Such were the crowds that for a while the AP CM was unable to find his way through them.
