Earlier, the raids on Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar and Rajya Sabha Member Vaddiraju Ravichandra by the ED and IT last week for two days came as a Shock to the TRS leaders. These raids came at a time the TRS leaders were still reeling from the shock of raids and arrests in the state in connection with the Delhi Liquor Scam in which close TRS leadership aides are allegedly involved.
Of the 104 TRS MLAs, nearly 25 MLAs are directly and indirectly involved in real estate, construction, mining, education, health, pharma, liquor, sand business and so on. They are said to be the major fund mobilizer’s for the TRS during elections.
