Hyderabad, Sep 12 : BJP Telangana unit on Saturday demanded a thorough investigation into the drug nexus of Tollywood – the Telugu film industry, as one its actress name has been publicly released, after NCB investigation in connection with Rhea Chakraborty’s case.
Earlier, Mr Akun Sabharwal IPS has done a thorough investigation into the drug mafia influence on not just tollywood, but also schools and colleges here.
Many big names were taken and news headlines were made, but none of them were brought to justice, party Chief Spokesperson K Krishna Saagar Rao said in a statement here.
Ironically, the tollywood actress in question Rakul Preet Singh has been a Telangana brand ambassador, and has been preaching against drug abuse, through the state government sponsored publicity programs.
Such is the state of affairs and duplicity of these self-proclaimed youth icons and role models, the BJP leader said.
Mr Rao said, “Many such drug users, addicts and peddlers of Tollywood are still very popular and actually have become bad role models for this generation of youngsters. They are inadvertently leading many young students and professionals into drug dependence and addiction, which eventually destroy lives”, he alleged.
The BJP state Chief Spokesperson demanded Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to initiate serious investigation into the Drug menace in Hyderabad, which is destroying many young lives in the state.
“I am also writing to Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy requesting to conduct a serious investigation through NCB into the Drug trafficking in the state”, Mr Rao added.
