VISAKHAPATNAM: Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday demanded expulsion of excise minister Mopidevi Venkata Ramana, involved in the liquor syndicate, from the cabinet. Congress should make public the names of all political leaders involved in the liquor syndicate as revealed by the AntiCorruption Bureau raids, he said.

Naidu said the government should answer why ACB has not conducted any raids in Vizianagaram district, represented by Botcha Satyanarayana. Naidu also wanted Botcha be removed from the post of PCC president after he announced that his family owns 31 liquor shops in the state. Addressing thousands of youth from East Godavari, Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts and leaders of TDP of all the four districts who participated in the Yuva Tarangam, Naidu said youth should join politics and work towards a corruption free society.

About 70 per cent of the population in the country were below 35 years while 60 per cent were below 25 years of age, he said. India has more human resources than any other country in the world, he said. Countries like Thailand and Singapore have developed due to youth power while Brazil and America lagged in development as they neglected the youth, he said.
