AP agriculture minister Kannababu flayed Chandrababu Naidu for terming Andhra Pradesh as drug capital and defaming the State. He reminded the AP Leader of Opposition that former TDP Ministers Ayyanna Patrudu and Ganta Srinivas Rao have stated that ganja cultivation was prevalent in Visakhapatnam region and took no action in restricting it.
However, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy formed the State Enforcement Bureau in 2019 and took strict measures. So far, almost three lakh kgs of Ganja have been seized, and over 5000 people arrested and 1500 vehicles seized by the SEB, he added.
Responding to the attack on Chandrababu Naidu in Kuppam, he said that YSRCP leaders have got no reason to attack Naidu, as he was already defeated by the people of Kuppam in local-body polls.
