Andhra Pradesh government on Friday pasted a demolition notice outside the “illegal” house of former state CM N Chandrababu Naidu.
The notice was pasted on the main gate of Naidu’s house on the banks of Krishna river by Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) a day after completing the demolition of Praja Vedika, a government building adjacent to Naidu’s residence.
The notice has been served in the name of Lingameneni Ramesh, from whom the house was taken on lease by the then CM Chandrababu Naidu in 2016.
CRDA, in a statement, said that the house was built within 100 meters from the Krishna river and this is in violation of the River Conservancy Act and other rules and regulations.
The government agency, responsible for construction of state capital Amaravati, has asked Ramesh to submit an explanation on the violations in eight days. The notice warned him of stringent action if the explanation was not satisfactory.
The CRDA officials have reportedly identified over 50 illegal structures and served notices on all of them.
It may be mentioned here that on Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s orders, the CRDA on Tuesday and Wednesday demolished Praja Vedika, which the government had built at a cost of Rs 5 crore as an annexe of the then chief minister’s house to hold official meetings.
