Amaravati: Asserting that TDP leaders are indulging in cheap politics over drug bust in Gujarat, YSRCP MLA Dr Gopireddy Srinivasa Reddy said that Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) is investigating the case and the opposition is making baseless allegations against the government creating panic among the people.
Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, the MLA said that there is no link between the huge consignment of heroin in Gujarat and Vijayawada, where DRI an apex body for anti smuggling, intelligence and operations, had clearly stated that the investigation is going on. However, the TDP leaders are making misleading statements and creating chaos in the State, he said and added that opposition leaders have no right to speak about such issues.
The MLA stated that Ashi Trading Company’s address is in Vijayawada, but the company has no activities in Andhra Pradesh and is operated from Chennai, where the suspect had moved to Chennai almost eight years back. The DRI officials had already confirmed this and there is no evidence that the heroin was imported to Vijayawada. It was clearly intended to reach Delhi. Even though there is no constructive evidence, the opposition and a section of media are desperately trying to mislead the public with false allegations against the government.
He assured that Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy who strives for the good future of students and youth in the State will not allow drugs into Andhra Pradesh and also constituted Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) to take serious action on anti-social activities. MLA Srinivas Reddy stated that the government will take responsibility if the opposition proves their claims with evidence. He asked the State Police to take action on those trying to defame the government and trying to create panic among the public through false propaganda.
