Chowdhury said, “What does he think? By doing all this dialogue-baazi, he will get votes? I am a Hyderabadi and with great pride we say we are Hyderabadis. Who is he to interfere? To change name? He could go change his name if he wants. No one will object. If he tries to change city’s name, our identity it will not be good for Singh ji.”
