Observes one-day fast along with Telugu Mahila leaders
Tirupati: Demanding total prohibition of liquor in the state and waiver of electricity charges during the coronavirus pandemic, former Tirupati MLA M Sugunamma observed one day fast at her residence on Saturday. Several Telugu Mahila leaders also participated in it expressing their solidarity to the former MLA.
Speaking on this occasion, Sugunamma has criticised the state government for bringing darkness in the form of huge power bills in the lives of people who were suffering with the coronavirus induced lockdown. She demanded for total waiver of power bills of the last three months in the state.
She also pointed out the opening of liquor outlets when the Covid cases are on rise is causing panic among all sections of the people. Boozers are harassing their family members for money to go to liquor shops which is creating hardships in several families.
