Andhra Pradesh: Jagan’s govt set to demolish Chandrababu Naidu’s Amravati residence, notice served

The demolition notice was issued soon after another building named ‘Praja Vedika’ was razed down by the APCRDA. The former CM Naidu has been living in the house since 2016 after shifting from Hyderabad.

A demolition notice has been served to one Lingamaneni Ramesh, the owner of the house in which former Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu is currently living, by the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA), asking him to remove the unauthorised construction within 7 days, failing which APCRDA will remove the same.

The APCRDA authorised order was glued on the entrance of the house located in Undavalli village as Naidu, President of opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP), or his family members were not present at the location to receive the same.

The house owner was issued a show-cause notice on June 27. The latest order mentions that the reply submitted to the notice was not to the satisfaction of the authority. As per the order, the APCRDA staff discovered unauthorised constructions and developments in contravention of many rules and regulations during the inspection of the house.

Unapproved RCC residential buildings on the ground and first floor, along with a swimming pool and ground floor dressing room etc measuring 1.318 acres were highlighted in the issued order by the Andhra Pradesh Development Authority. In addition to this, the order reads that the unauthorised construction is within the Maximum Flood Level (MFL) of the Krishna river.

The demolition notice was issued immediately after another government building named ‘Praja Vedika’ was razed down by the APCRDA. The former CM Naidu has been living in the house since 2016 after shifting from Hyderabad. He had also got Praja Vedika, a meeting hall, constructed near his residence.

After coming to power in May 2019, the newly elected Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, in a spree to stamp out illegal constructions on the banks of Krishna at Undavalli, had ordered the demolition of Praja Vedika in June 2019. He had also alleged that Naidu himself is living in an illegal house.

The TDP, on the other hand, asserted that the party in power in the state is using its might against the opposition parties and accused it of political vendetta. Criticising YSRCP, TDP questioned the motive behind issuing a notice despite the matter being in the court.

The house is reportedly taken on lease by the Naidu family.
