They said the ration dealer Manga Devi, whose husband is a TDP leader, runs the shop at Vadlamuru village in Peddapuram mandal.

Police maintained that it was an act of misdemeanour on the part of the dealer to have the picture of Jesus Christ printed on the ration cards.
Previously, in 2016, the same person had reportedly printed Sai Baba’s picture on ration cards, then Lord Balaji’s photographs in 2017 and 2018.
