  • He also told the Republic Bharat reporter, "We need is the promotion of campaigns, travel, petrol expenses. These are the things where we could use the help. Are you understanding what I'm saying?"
  • He asserted to the reporter, "Look when we win elections with your support, your work will be prioritised."
