Former Congress leader and political analyst, Lagapati Rajagopal, said that he had warned KTR about negative feedback on 65 of the candidates they had declared. He had told KTR to change it if possible. Also, he had informed KTR to align with Telugu Desam Party (TDP), but he refused and wanted to go to polls singly, he said. This too, Lagapati suggested to KTR only when he was asked about it. At a press conference today, Lagadapati had expressed regrets at the sarcastic remarks of KTR against him.
