The TRS Government has turned Telangana into a “den of drug abuse and peddling” by adopting an “open-gate” excise policy, the BJP has alleged.
Accusing IT minister K T Rama Rao of promoting western culture, a BJP leader charged the government with making the state “Udta Telangana”, alluding to the Bollywood film “Udta Punjab” which focuses on the drug menace in Punjab.
The opposition partys charge against the state government comes in the backdop of the investigation by the special investigation team (SIT) of the Prohibition and Excise Department, which busted drug rackets here earlier this month.
The SIT had also summoned a dozen personalities from the Telugu film industry or Tollywood, to question them in connection with the case.
State BJP spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao said his party “100 per cent” believes that the drug menace in the state took off steeply after the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) government came to power.
