Hyderabad: There was jubilation in the
Telugu Desam Thursday after the Andhra Pradesh High Court struck
down a `public interest litigation` filed by YSR Congress
seeking a multi-agency investigation into the assets of party
President N Chandrababu Naidu.
The petition was filed by YSR Congress Honorary
President and MLA Y S Vijaya, who is widow of former Chief
Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy.
TDP MLAs distributed sweets in the Assembly after the
HC verdict even as a relieved Naidu maintained that those who
did nothing wrong would not face any problem. "I have done no
wrong...no one can do anything to me. The High Court verdict
The TDP President pointed out that there was nothing
new in the allegations made in the petition. "She (Vijaya)
doesn`t seem to have faith in the investigations launched by
her (late) husband Y S Rajasekhara Reddy (against Naidu)."
The Leader of Opposition alleged the YSR family had
been adopting a vengeful attitude towards him for the past
YSR himself constituted many Cabinet sub-committees
and even went to court but could not prove any wrongdoing, the
former Chief Minister maintained.
TDP Politburo member Yanamala Ramakrishnudu welcomed
the HC verdict and said Vijaya filed the petition at the
behest of her son and Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy as part
of "political vendetta".
"The petition against Chandrababu Naidu was filed as
part of the agreement Jagan had with the Congress high
command. Jagan entered into the agreement after the CBI
launched investigations against him," Yanamala alleged.
Former Union Minister K Yerran Naidu said the ruling
was a slap on the face of those who sought to gain political
mileage by filing false petitions against opponents.
