Telangana TDP politburo member Ravula Chandrashekar Reddy today accused the state government of turning Hyderabad into a hub for narcotic drugs.
Speaking to the media at NTR Trust Bhavan on Friday, the TDP leader said that during the TDP regime the city was a hub of health, education, tourism and IT, but it was now becoming a capital for narcotics.
The unearthing of the drug mafia and the arrests of peddlers had created fear, and people were afraid of visiting Hyderabad, he claimed.
That the drug mafia had reportedly made school and engineering students its customers was extremely concerning, he said, and demanded that the state government deal with the drug peddlers with an iron hand.
He also said that irrigation minister Harish Rao, instead of indulging in publicity for the various projects, should concentrate on the completion of the projects. He also alleged that the minister was merely visiting old projects which were started during the TDP rule.
