A letter purportedly released by CPI (Maoist) has created panic among the leaders of various political leaders in Bhadrachalam division of the district. Some leaders, whose names have figured in the missive, are understood to have making arrangements to leave the district.

CPI (Maoist) Khammam district secretary Kiran released a letter Tuesday alleging that Bhadrachalam MLA K Satyavathi, District Congress Committee (DCC) president Vanama Venkateswara Rao, MLC Balasani Lakshminarayana and former ZPTC member of Bhadrachalam Gundu Sarat, had made a lot of money by playing a key role in sand mafia in the division. They took the help of a tribal B Balya, to run their illegal activities.

He alleged that the leaders had managed to get some of their followers elected to the tribal sand societies in Bhadrachalam, Charla and Venkatapuram and claimed that three persons - Srikar, P Pasi, Gowtham and Narsimha Rao - were fecilitating deals for them.

Kiran also said due to illegal sand transportation, the roads were getting damaged and faulted the officials for not taking action against them. He warned that the people would punish the culprits if the government failed to take action against them.

Responding to the Maoists’ letter over the phone, MLC Lakshminarayana said that he was in no way concerned with sand mafia. “I am not aware of the Maoists mentioning his name in sand mafia,” he added.

Expressing doubts over the letter, MLA Kunja Satyavathi said the letter would have been released by some Congress leaders. She also said that she did not even know where sand quarries were located and added that she was not afraid as she had not done anything wrong.
