Tirupati: Continuing his fight against sale and distribution of intoxications in the pilgrim city, MLA Bhumana Karunakar Reddy on Thursday took up extensive walkathon, meeting people at Jeevakona and Sathayanarayanapuram, a predominantly labour area located at forest fringe. In his two-hour-long campaign, in the area, which is also suspected one of the main centres where the clandestine sale and distribution of the intoxications like ganja going on, Karunakar Reddy called upon the residents to eliminate the menace and appealed to youth not to fall prey to vices which spoil their lives.
