'Chandrababu Naidu says he built Hyderabad. Quli Qutub Shah who built the city would commit suicide if he was alive,' Rao said.
Telangana Rashtra Samiti's chief and state Chief Minister KC Rao on Sunday accused Andhra CM of distorting facts.
According to reports, Rao accused N Chandrababu Naidu of distorting facts over the development of Hyderabad and said that the TDP chief needs a "mental check-up."
"Chandrababu Naidu says he built Hyderabad. Quli Qutub Shah who built the city would commit suicide (if he is alive and hears this). Was Charminar (monument) also built by Naidu? I don't understand," Rao said during an election rally in Telangana.
"Would anybody talk like that? I think he should be examined to check to see whether he is mentally fit," Rao added.
"On one side you have Congress and TDP which ruled the state for 58 years and on the other side there is TRS which fought for Telangana and achieved it," he stated.
Meanwhile, Andhra Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday asked if he ever stopped KC Rao from fulfilling his poll promises in Telangana.
Earlier this week, Naidu claimed to have no interest in Telangana's politics.
Speaking at an event in Hyderabad, the Telugu Desam Party chief said that his aim is to protect the democracy "which is in danger" and not to become the Prime Minister.
"I may enter national politics but won't enter Telangana politics. I'm not greedy for power. I am not thinking of becoming the Prime Minister. My aim is to protect the democracy which is in danger," Naidu noted.
