There are innumerable allegations on West Godavari district’s Palakollu MLA Nimmala Ramanaidu who is from TDP. He is said to be the center of all the illegalities that takes place in this constituency. People say that he expects a commission for each and every favor and his commission might exceed up to 25% as depending on the works proposed. Reports say that he eyed on a lake that values about 30 crores which is public property.
Roads in this constituency are at the low quality and the tender for their construction is granted for the very first time for just 1crore rupees which is contrary to the law. As some sources report that they collect up to 1000Rs as the beneficiary fare from people and the councilors of the respective wards used to collect 100 rupees from the pension of oldies which is 1000Rs. As all of these activities used to happen in his regime the people are making some reparative statements against him as the corruptionist. If this kind of talk continues to float to the surrounding regions in the district, it will affect the winning chances of TDP to a greater extent as West Godavari is said to be the key zone and there is a myth that the one who wins in this district would definitely grab the power in the state.
