MLAs belonging to ruling and opposition have threatened sand contractors in Nellore to pay them 40 per cent of sand sale proceeds. Recently, MLAs gave warning to sand contractors at a former Minister's house. With threats from MLAs, contractors have formed into a syndicate and quoted sand contract for lesser price. They have quoted Rs 152 only per cubic metre of sand. The State government will lose revenue if contract was given was lesser price.
