Bandru demands judicial probe into sari distribution

Telangana TDP Mahila president Bandru Shobharani today demanded a probe into alleged Bathukamma saris scam by a sitting judge.

Speaking to media at NTR trust bhavan here, Shobharani said it was an insult to women as sub-standard saris were distributed by the TRS government in the name of Bathukamma saris. Instead of procuring saris from weavers in Pochampalli, Aleru, Narayanpet, Gadwal and kottakota, the government brought the saris from Surat just for making money by TRS leaders, she alleged. After the scams like distribution of sheep and fish, the government came forward with Bathukamma saris and deceived the women. (NSS)
