Till recently, there was a noisy atmosphere in Munugodu.. heavy vehicles, policemen, leaders, activists, sound of drums, songs, dance etc., never before. The noise was there before. See where the leg box was without sound. People were thronging from near T Kottu to Festar Hotel. Not to mention wine shops and hotels. It should be understood that in the month of October alone, a liquor business worth Rs.300 crores has taken place. That voice..the voice before..suddenly went silent.
The crowd suddenly disappeared. Shops that were crowded till yesterday will now be brightly lit. Shops which were in heavy demand on a daily basis have suddenly seen a drop in demand.
