Visakhapatnam: AP Roads and Buildings Minister Ch Ayyanna Patrudu chided victims of Agrigold, a non-banking finance and real estate company which failed to return their money, much to the chagrin of the latter.
The incident occurred while the Minister along with Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister N Chinarajappa, was on a tour of East Godavari district on Saturday.
The Agrigold victims met the two Ministers and tried to pour their woes, seeking justice when Patrudu reportedly asked,”Did you deposit money after taking our advice? Do you want Chandrababu to pay all the money,” which shocked them.
They took serious exception to the minister’s remarks when the Deputy CM intervened and pacified them.
