Professor M Kodandaram, activist-politician and chief of Telangana Jana Samithi, is one of the most prominent faces of the Telangana movement. 

Kodandaram worked with chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao during the Telangana agitation. But now he has extended support to the Congress in a bid to bring down the BRS government. 

In this conversation with TNM’s Pooja Prasanna, he talks about why his party is not contesting the assembly polls and supporting the Congress, the right to protest in Telangana, crackdown on activists, the BRS government, and his relationship with KCR. He alleges that the BRS has “established an autocratic regime”.
