The ruling YSRCP and the opposition Telugu Desam are now locked in a heated political battle on the issue of online sale of Anandayya ayurvedic medicine. The TDP is saying that the YCP leaders are trying to make fast money in the name of online sale of ayurvedic medicine. Whereas, the YCP has begun filing cases against the TDP leaders who have made these allegations against the ruling party.
The controversy erupted after one Narmada Reddy started Sresita website to sell Anandayya medicine. This was started just a few days after the YCP MLA said that online sale of this medicine would begin soon. The TDP was questioning why a private operated the website and whether it was started without the permission of the YCP MLA.
On its part, the Government simply accused the TDP leaders of spreading false rumours. Hence, cases were filed against some TDP leaders in the Nellore district.
However, till now, there was no clarification from the Government side on whether it had a role in running the website or not. It remained a mystery whether Mr. Narmada Reddy had got necessary permissions or not. Obviously, the District Collector and the SP were staying away from this row considering how the local YCP MLA had taken all things into his hands from the beginning.
