Former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu has received a notice from Andhra Pradesh government asking him to vacate his house which was constructed violating rules. According to the notice, the house flouts Environment Act and River Protection act as the construction has been done in less than 100 metres distance from the Krishna river.
Similarly, other houses and commercial buildings in that stretch have also received notices and the occupants have been asked to vacate the premises with immediate effect. This development comes in less than a week after Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy hinted that his predecessor's home will be the razed along with Praja Vedika. Praja Vedika, a mini-convention centre built to hold meetings and government conferences was demolished on Wednesday and it was only a matter of time before the government took the step of serving notice.
Meanwhile, YSRCP MP Vijay Sai Reddy termed the construction of Naidu's home as 'illegal' and supported the move of the government asking the TDP Chief to vacate the home as it flouted River Conservancy Act, 1884.
“The private residence where Naidu is staying is also illegal and Naidu should vacate the place immediately. If a property has been identified as illegal and if it’s constructed on the river bed, the only option left is to demolish," tweeted Reddy.
The current residence of Naidu is owned by an industrialist who leased the property to Naidu in 2015. The home has attracted special attention from the YSRCP clan after it came to power in the recently held Assembly Elections in the state.
Meanwhile, TDP leaders have started looking out for a new location for the party Chief and have shortlisted some locations in the capital region.
