Communist Party of India demands probe by CBI into ‘liquor scam’ in Andhra Pradesh

Pawan Kalyan should strive to achieve a broad-based opposition alliance to end the YSRCP’s misrule, says Ramakrishna

The Communist Party of India (CPI) in Andhra Pradesh has demanded that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government at the Centre order a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the alleged liquor scam in the State. Addressing the media here on Monday, CPI State secretary K. Ramakrishna said the liquor shops in the State sold spurious liquor at exorbitant prices, and accused the ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) of benefiting from such unethical practices. The harmful ingredients in liquor affected the health of the people severely leading to several deaths, Mr. Ramakrishna alleged. “The very low digital transactions at liquor shops resulted in suppression of the actual revenue generated from liquor in the State and generation of a huge unaccounted wealth by ruling YSRCP leaders,” he contended. It had become a bad practice for the BJP to selectively use the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate to put leaders of opposition parties such as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to trouble, while allowing leaders of some parties like the YSRCP, which had been supporting its sectarian agenda in Parliament, to go scot-free, he charged.
