Following this, Y. Sathish Reddy, TRS social media convenor, lodged a complaint at the Hayathnagar police station stating that the BJP Telangana unit had misused the platform to defame the government schemes and levelled false accusations against the CM and the government with an intention to mislead the people and evoke hatred and unrest.

Based on the complaint, a case has been registered in Hayathnagar police station against Bandi Sanjay, Jitta Balakrishna Reddy, Rani Rudrama, and Boddu Yellanna, a member of the BJP's cultural team that put up the skit.

The police said that from the video it is evident that the organisers misused the dais and the event that was organised to celebrate the Telangana Formation Day to make derogatory comments and personal attacks. They depicted the Chief Minister in a derogatory manner and indulged in personal attacks and hate speech, the police found.

The skit was taped and telecast by V6, a Telugu TV news channel. Disseminating/telecasting the hate speech to provoke hatred among groups posed a threat to the democratic order and caused distress among certain groups, it was opined.
