    Very nice and amusing to hear about the periodic raids and seizing plastic materials from shops and godowns in Santhepet, Shivarampet etc. Then there is the photo of the vehicle carrying the materials and the beaming personnel. A question from an ordinary layman ….Is it so difficult to cut-off the production and supply line? But, it may be that the matter is not that simple as we think? But who will answer?
