Disproportionate assets case on Chandrababu reopened

Whatever may be the results of elections that are a trial for any politician in people's court, Andhra Pradesh CM Naidu is set to face a trial in Anti Corruption Bureau Court as the stay he obtained in disproportionate assets case has been automatically cancelled by the Supreme Court order on stays given. 

In 2005, late NTR's wife and YSRCP leader Lakshmi Parvati filed a case in ACB court to prosecute him for having disproportionate assets. However, CM Naidu got a stay in the high court on the petition filed by Lakshmi Parvati. 

Now the stay obtained by Babu will get cancelled based on a Supreme Court order to remove the long-standing stay orders in such cases all over the country. Hence, the Hyderabad ACB court reopened the case and summoned Lakshmi Parvati to appear before it. As per the summons, she attended the court on Friday. 

The court posted the hearing on the case to May 13th. It is known that Lakshmi Parvati shall fight the case. Now being a YSRCP leader she has the support of that party too. She may get tacit support of BJP too, given to strained relations of that party and PM Modi with Chandrababu Naidu. 

When asked by ACB court whether she wanted to continue or withdraw the case, her advocate appearing for Lakshmi Parvati replied that she wanted to continue the hearing in the case. He further requested the court to direct Anti-Corruption Bureau to register a case against AP CM Chandrababu Naidu. The Counsel also asked for some time to provide necessary material necessary for hearing and court posted the case to May 13th.
