Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) minister, Lakshma Reddy is a realtor, besides being a politician. He said that besides politics, he also deals with real estate which returns he uses for his political works. He said that controversy arose when he began a Social Economic Zone (SEZ) in Mahbubnagar. But now that industries have come, everyone is happy. Also, he said that he had reacted harshly to rival, Revanth Reddy harshly, because the latter had made some personal remarks on a public platform.
