Andhra CM Jagan Reddy revokes Naidu govt order, reinstates general consent granted to CBI

The previous government headed by Naidu had passed an order, making it mandatory for the CBI to take permission from the state government before carrying out an investigation in the state.

Newly elected Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Jaganmohan Reddy is set to revoke the order by his predecessor N. Chandra Babu Naidu by giving a general consent to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to conduct investigations in the state.

The previous government headed by Naidu had passed an order, making it mandatory for the CBI to take permission from the state government before carrying out an investigation in the state. While the official statement by the government in this regard is awaited, the news was confirmed by the Vijay Sai Reddy on Twitter. Reddy who is the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) General Secretary and Rajya Sabha member said Naidu government was scared but no thieves would be allowed to get away under the present government.

“Chandrababu banned the CBI and he prevented the IT raids. He questioned how ED comes in the state. Now Jagan has issued orders allowing the CBI into the state. CM made it clear that thieves will not be spared. Look out Chandrababu,” Reddy said.

“He banned CBI, stalled Income Tax department raids and fired at Enforcement Directorate. But now, Jagan is issuing orders allowing the CBI into the State, thereby making it clear that he will not spare the thieves. Are you listening, Mr Chandrababu Naidu,” he added.

As per the new order, the CBI would not require the permission of the state government to conduct any probe in the state.

It is notable here that after Andhra Pradesh, Congress-led Chhattisgarh and Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal had also withdrawn the general consent granted to the CBI to probe cases in their respective states.

The YSRCP had registered a massive win in the recent Assembly polls in the state by sweeping 151 out of a total of 175 seats.

We had reported last month that after registering an impressive victory in the Vidhan Sabha and Lok Sabha polls in Andhra Pradesh, YSRCP chief had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi before taking oath as the next Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on May 30.
