In a selfie video, Ramakrishna lamented that Vanama Raghava was committing suicide as he could not bear harassment. He committed suicide with his wife and two children. For a few days, this event was talk of the state. Kottagudem bandh was also organized by opposition parties and public associations. A demand for MLA Vanama Venkateswara Rao’s resignation is being heard all over the state. Raghavan has already been suspended by TRS.
