Nalgonda municipal chairperson Lakshmi spoke to newsmen about the murder of her husband, Bodupalli Srinivas, late last night. She said that a Ward counselor, Merugu Gopu was behind the murder. Alleging that it is the handiwork of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) activists, she claimed that it was purely an act of revenge as she belonged to the Opposition party. Her husband was killed by those he trusted, she added. Even veteran Nalgonda Congress leader Komatreddy Venkat Reddy alleged the hand of some ruling party rivals behind the killings.
