When the results were declared and YCP lost the elections, he left the village and didn’t return. He didn’t respond to anyone’s calls as well.

On June 7, those who had bet against him went to his house, broke the lock, and took away ACs, sofas, cots, and other furniture.

The next day, Venu returned home and discovered his furniture had been taken. Distraught by the incident and unable to repay the betting debts, he went to his field and committed suicide by consuming pesticide.

People on Social Media say Jagan should be made responsible for this as he misled cadre with Fake Survey by AARAA Masthan and with the announcement of Swearing-in ceremony in Vizag.
