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.
In a recent development, Director General of Police D Goutam Sawang has sent legal notices to the former chief minister and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and few other TDP leaders for making defamatory statements against him. Chandrababu’s son and MLC Nara Lokesh and MP K Rammohan Naidu are amongst the leaders who were served notices.
The police boss served notices to a leading newspaper as well. Reportedly, the DGP in his notices sought an unconditional apology from the TDP leaders for their statements against him as the imputations have left a scar and lowered his reputation. The TDP leaders are yet to respond to this development.
