Demolition orders to withdrawing security cover: AP CM Jagan Mohan Reddy goes full throttle against his predecessor Chandrababu Naidu

According to the reports, Naidu's son Nara Lokesh has been stripped of his 'Z' category security and has been scaled down to 'Y' with 2+2 armed gunmen. The security of other Naidu family members has also been withdrawn completely.

The newly-elected Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, has gone all guns blazing against former CM N Chandrababu Naidu. Reddy had earlier passed orders to demolish a conference hall built by Naidu, which he maintained was an illegal construction. He had also curbed Naidu’s Z+ category security earlier this month.

Now, Reddy has shifted his focus on the security cover of Naidu’s family members, which they have been enjoying so far.

According to the reports, Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh has been stripped of his ‘Z’ category security and has been scaled down to ‘Y’ with 2+2 armed gunmen. The security of other Naidu family members has been withdrawn completely.

Naidu was apprised of the state government’s decision after he returned from a family vacation in Europe.

The former CM was getting Z category security after he was attacked by Maoists in April 2003.

Earlier, in an overnight task, Naidu’s Rs 8 crore ‘Praja Vedika’ that was built adjacent to his residence was demolished by Reddy government. The demolition was ordered by CM Reddy, who claimed the building to be “illegal” and asserted all such structures would be destroyed.

The demolition took place after the Andhra High Court turned down a late night plea and adjourned the hearing by two weeks. The petition had alleged that demolition was a waste of public money.

As per sources, Naidu’s residence could be razed down next.

Reddy on Monday declared all buildings that have been constructed on the banks of Krishna river were illegal and unauthorized. He had asserted these buildings would be demolished one after the other starting Wednesday.

Reacting to this, Naidu who was holidaying in Europe and returned home yesterday said it was foolish to destroy government property. He also questioned if Reddy was planning to bring down statues of his father and former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy and said, “Many statues don’t have permission (and) stand on unauthorized land.”

Meanwhile, there are reports suggesting the new Chief Minister has ordered to return the land of farmers acquired for the construction of a road leading to Naidu’s residence.
