After complaints from hospitals about adulteration in blood bags procured from Hyderabad blood banks, and reports of proliferation of food adulteration in the city, Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, at a high-level meeting at Pragathi Bhavan here Sunday, told officials that every possible step should be taken to tackle the problems.

Chandrashekhar Rao on Sunday directed the Prohibition and Excise Department not to spare anybody involved in drugs racket. The meeting was held against the backdrop of busting of a high-end narcotics selling racket by the state Excise department. Register cases against them and send them to jail.

The CM also asked Excise Commissioner Chandravadan and Excise & Enforcement Director Sri Akun Sabharwal to take the responsibility of in-depth investigation of the drugs cases and see that the guilty are punished while Hyderabad and Warangal IGs Stephen Ravindra, Nagireddy were asked to oversee the strategy to stop the drugs menace spreading to other cities and towns in the state. "In this shady business, don't leave any one".

KCR, at the meet, assured officials of full support and ordered them not to spare guilty. Expressing pain over the incident in last month wherein blood was adulterated with saline in the city, Rao asked the officials to modify the Acts to give the guilty life imprisonment and bring in changes and amendment to the existing Acts if needed. "If it is being supplied from the neighbouring states, control it".

The Chief Minister said his government is giving complete freedom to the officials on this issue.
