Hyderabad: Welcoming the arrest of Janardhan
Reddy, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu Monday said the former Karnataka minister could carry out his "illegal activities" only because of the "indifference" of the state and Central
"Hundreds of crores of public money was looted by the
mining mafia only because of the apathy of the governments
despite the Supreme Court and the Karnataka Lokayukta
censuring them on illegal mining. The TDP has been fighting relentlessly against illegal mining activity and will continue it," Chandrababu told reporters.
Telugu Desam Parliamentary Party leader Nama Nageswara Rao demanded the government confiscate all properties of
TDP MLA and spokesman Payyavula Kesav said Janardhan`s
arrest was a result of their fight against the mining mafia.
"The arrest was belated but welcome. It should serve as a
lesson to those who amass wealth illegally," he said.
