Hyderabad/Anantapur: Telangana Police seized Rs. 24 lakhs of unaccounted money and arrested AP minister, Paritala Sunitha's close aide and MPP, Rapthadu, Daggupati Prasad and his driver Santosh Reddy. The money, believed to be meant for distribution among voters was being transported in a vehicle which was intercepted and checked at Aramgarh Crossroads in Hyderabad.
It is learnt that money and liquor are flowing freely in Raptadu where Paritala Sunitha's son, Sriram is contesting on a TDP ticket. The contest has become all the more difficult for Sriram because of the growing resentment against the ruling party. Conversely, there is an equally strong desire for change among the masses.
The buzz is that Paritala Sunitha is desperately trying to get her son past the finish line in the face of anti-incumbency and a strong YSRCP candidate, T Prakash Reddy who has a deep grassroots connect.
