Subsequently he wrote to the Arunachal government seeking details of the buses illegally running in AP. Reacting to the comments of Vijayawada MP, he said that Nani’s comments are his personal views.

In a retaliation, Nani said that, only Chandrababu and Lokesh statements are considered as official statements and all other statements by TDP leaders are personal. The MP speaking to ABN news channel said that some of the officers are not abiding by the law bringing a bad name to TDP government. He complemented Arunachal Pradesh CM for quick action over the complaints he made.
