Causing a stir in the ruling party, venkatagiri YSRC mla anam ramanarayana reddy has alleged that betting, liquor, land, and sand mafias are ruling the roost in nellore city. It is learned that Anam made the sensational comments on the law and order situation in the city in the wake of the transfer of the district Superintendent of police due to ‘political interference’.
“If you want pure honey, visit venkatagiri and if you want to see the power wielded by the mafia, visit nellore city,” the mla said. On the other side, chief minister YS jagan mohan reddy has reacted strongly over the criticism and reportedly ordered mp V vijay sai Reddy to issue a show-cause notice to the leader. The sources in the party informed that jagan strongly conveyed a message that, speaking anything against the party leaders or government will be taken very seriously.
Anam family has been playing a key role in district politics for several decades. Ramanarayana reddy also served as a minister in the erstwhile united AP. He joined the ruling telugu Desam on january 17, 2016, along with his brother vivekananda reddy and the latter is no more now. Further, Ramanarayana reddy shifted his loyalties to YSRC before the general elections and won from Venkatagiri.
