Hero of A.P, Villain of Tamil Nadu

Maganti Kantha Rao, whose ideology is analogous to that of the hero in the film Pokiri was the person behind Seshachalam encounter that took place on 7th april in Chittoor district. While Andhrites (excluding rivals and the NKRC) looked at him like an achiever, he is viewed as a villain in the state of Tamil Nadu.

When questioned if it is not ruthless to kill 20 people in an encounter, he replied, “How can we just watch someone illegally smuggling red sandalwood out of Tirupathi where the divine and most powerful Lord Sri Venkateswara resides. Lord himself decides on the issue”, said the officer like a serious character in Ram Gopal Varma’s film with a grin on his face.
