"Chandurudu, I am coming.,." a video of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi purportedly referring to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu as 'Chandrudu', has gone viral on social media.
In the video, Owaisi can be heard saying, 'Aur Mr. Chandradu, tumahare ko bhul gaya tha main ... Chandurudu, I am coming to Andhra Pradesh...I am coming. Get ready"
According to media reports, Owaisi was at a public meeting in Hyderabad on December 12 when he took a jibe at Naidu and warned him of facing him soon.
Owaisi expressed his resentment after TDP contested recently concluded Telangana assembly polls in alliance with Congress.
AIMIM leader and Owaisi's brother Akbaruddin Owaisi won from Chandrayangutta constituency for the fifth time in a row, defeating his nearest BJP rival Syed Shehjadi by a margin of over 80,000 votes in the latest assembly elections in Telangana.
MIM won in seven assembly constituencies for the first time in 2009 and repeated the feat in 2014.
