Pawan Kalyan Urges Govt To Seek Justice For Agrigold Victims

Tollywood Power Star and Jana Sena Chief, Pawan Kalyan have met the victims of Agrigold scam, and urged the Government to seek justice for them.

The Agrigold scam, amounting to nearly, Rs 6800 crore, was siphoned off by the Agrigold Management.

The victims belonging to various states were present at the meeting.

Pawan Kalyan stated that, the Agrigold company possessed more assets, than the money it owes to the depositors.

The Government should take necessary action, in recovering the money, said Pawan Kalyan.

There was a lack of clarity, in the investigations. The actor, further said, that he could not understand why there was a delay in ensuring justice to  the victims.

The owners of the company have around 20,000 acres of land and properties.

The scam has affected about 32 lakh depositors in nine states, owing Rs 6,380 crore.

About, 19 lakh depositors, who have deposited Rs 4000 crore, with the company, are from only Andhra Pradesh.

The Jana Sena leader, further addressed, saying the scam could have solved earlier, when the cheques of the company bounced.

The actor said, he did not raise the issue, since it was under the supervision of the Court.

He further questioned the roles and responsibilities of the political leaders, and even warned the public representatives, who are expecting a benefit from the scam.

Few victims broke down at the meeting, while narrating their tale of owes, to the actor.

Raising concern over the suicides by more than 100 victims, the actor said, there is a need to immediately come to the rescue of the depositors.

Pawan Kalyan, further cited the example of the West Bengal government.

The West Bengal government, provided Rs 5,000 assistance, to every victim of the Saradha scam. Similar help was offered in Odisha, he said.

The actor remarked that the politicians destroyed the government and as a result, nobody questioned the misdeeds of such companies.

Of the 19 accused, only seven were arrested so far by Andhra Pradesh police.

Pawan Kalyan stated that, the Jana Sena party works with the ideology to focus on people's issues irrespective of the parties.

And this is the reason he has come forward, said Pawan Kalyan.
