He said that not consulting the state government or Chief Minister showed the arrogance of the Prime Minister and intentional in stopping Mr. Chandrashekar Rao from attending the programme by not following proper protocol. He has even recalled the past events when the Chief Minister was not invited properly for some programmes.
