AP Minister’s wife creates ruckus at Toll Plaza at Telangana
P Venkata Kumari, wife of Andhra Pradesh minister Prathipati Pulla Rao, created a ruckus at a toll plaza in Telangana's Nalgonda on Hyderabad-Guntur highway on Friday.
She picked up an argument with a toll plaza worker at Madgulapalli when he stopped the vehicle and asked her to pay the toll fee of Rs 56. A video of the minister’s wife shouting at the toll plaza staff and their strong retort to her went viral in the social media on Saturday.
The toll plaza worker told her that the vehicle would get a free passageway only if the MLA travelled in it and not others who used the vehicle. Moreover, the validity of the “MLA” sticker had expired in December 2018 itself, he pointed out.
“The election results in Andhra Pradesh have yet been declared. My husband is still a minister and an MLA. How can the toll plaza staff obstruct his car?” she asked. Finally, she paid and left from there.
