The new high-profile entrant into the Congress A Revanth Reddy said that he would come into the open from December 9.
In chitchat with the journalists at his residence in Jubilee Hills on Wednesday, Reddy alleged that Telangana had become a den of crime and corruption under KCR's watch and with his active connivance.
Drug suppliers in the state were very close to the CM's family, and a firm named "Event Now" also had links with drug dealers, he said.
The middle class people felt happy when the government took up the narcotics issues seriously, but there were no results in the cases, he claimed.
He alleged that the pubs and drugs culture had increased dramatically after the formation of a separate Telangana state. He said that there were barely any pubs before the formation of the Telangana state but the number had reached 59 now.
He said that the Goa, Karnataka and Maharashtra governments had given permission for sunburn parties but later countermanded them, but the TRS government was giving permission to sunburn parties at even prestigious places like Hitex and the Gachibowli stadium. He alleged that Events Now, a company that belonged to IT Minister K T Rama Rao's brother-in-law Pakala Rajendra Prasad, had sold tickets to the sunburn parties, and hence the government had aborted investigation into the drugs' case.
He alleged that the police were not giving permission to the Koluvulakai Kotlata meeting proposed by Kodandaram but were giving permissions to sunburn parties being held in sports complexes.
