The word ‘liquor’ in English and ‘saara’ in Telugu is very popular in every household in urban and countryside in Telangana. With this, the people had easily connected to the scam and the subject had become a routine topic of discussion.
Summoning of BRS MLC Kavitha by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the liquor scam drew the attention of the people of all walks of life. The arguments at tea centres are being witnessed on various aspects of the ‘liquor scam’ case.
The names that took place Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy and his son Raghava and others like Sarathchandra Reddy were in liquor business for long. There is a reason for exposing their names in the issue. How BRS MLC Kavitha’s name entered the list of suspected beneficiaries is a point of discussion at tea corners. A. Srinivas, running a juice shop in Khammam, said, “Kavitha might have entered into the deal as a consultant between the persons of Delhi government and liquor traders”.
Interestingly, the rural folk are also interested in discussing ‘liquor scam’ because of name of a woman, that too the daughter of Telangana Chief Minister KCR is involved. How was Kavitha’s name added in the list of ‘liquor scam’ accused? Narvaneni Adinarayana, a farmer said, “Kavita should produce substantial evidences to prove her innocence in the scam. Otherwise, she will be a suspect in the eyes of common man.
Another question has been making the round among the people in the case is- why Kavitha had to intervene in Delhi liquor deals when there are a lot of opportunities for her to solve the problems of the poor in Telangana? The adage ‘Caeser’s wife should be above suspicion’ will be applied to Kavitha.
