Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) seizing heroin worth an estimated Rs 9,000 crore from Mundra Port in Gujarat’s Kutch has set storm in Andhra political circles.
While the main opposition demanded the central government for a probe into the drug seize, ruling YSRCP leaders jumped into action hitting back TDP’s allegations over the links between officials in Andhra Pradesh and the Taliban in Afghanistan.
As per the allegations levied by the main opposition, the YS brothers, owners of Reddys Global Industries are being involved in drug peddling with the support of the state government. While Sunil Reddy started Reddy Global Industries in 1999, the company entered into the beverages, pharmaceutical, and mining sectors and emerged as a conglomerate in no time.
However, Sunil Reddy hit back the allegations stating that they have been fully compliant and transparent. The company also released a press note stating- “Neither any relevant information was supplied to substantiate these allegations, nor any prior notice was issued to Sh. YS Anil Reddy or Sh. YS Sunil Reddy.”
