Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and 15 others were at the receiving end of non bailable warrants for being part of protests against Babli project in Maharashtra in 2010.
Naidu, who was in the opposition was taken into custody along with other protesters at that time and was later released. TDP was protesting against the construction of barrage claiming that it would choke the water supply to the united Andhra Pradesh. The court deemed the protest to be in direct violation of its orders. The matter which was taken to Supreme court was ruled in favour of Maharashtra government.
The present court order also issued non bailable warrants against ministers Devineni Uma Maheshwara Rao, N Anand Babu among others for criminal intimidation, deterring public officer from discharging duties among other offenses.
Naidu was attending Bramhotsavam in Tirupati when the news of the warrants issued was conveyed to him. Responding on the issue, Naidu’s son and AP’s IT Minister Nara Lokesh said, “He fought to protect the interests of Telangana. He even refused to seek bail when he was arrested
