Telugu Desam Leader Revanth Reddy said that the Telangana government is deliberately avoiding the drugs case and is acting one-sidedly in the assembly. He allegedly that government intentionally adjourned the assembly when it was his turn to ask question on drugs issue. Speaking to reporters at the media point after the assembly was adjourned on its first day, the Kodangal MLA alleged the involvement of minister K T Rama Rao’s brother-in-law Raj Pakala in promoting narcotics trade.
He noted that TRS government gave permission to more pubs than the previous governments in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh. Revanth deplored the government for giving permission to David Guetta concert. He asked when permission was denied in Mumbai, Goa and Bengaluru fearing drug abuse and harassment against women, why did Telangana government give permission? The TTDP leader said that only to benefit the firm “Events now”, run by KTR’s brother-in-law the government is giving permission recklessly.
Revanth said that the government is hatching a conspiracy to avoid the discussion use of narcotics fearing that some big names in the government will be exposed.
He recalled that whenever he raised drugs issue, Home Minister Nayani Narsimha Reddy accused him of going to clubs. He noted that when asked to collect blood samples of Minister KTR and his, there is no answer from the government.
