Amaravati, Jun 28 : The Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA), after demolition of Praja Vedika conference hall, located adjacent to former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s residence, is preparing ground to demolish Naidu’s river-front residence and it issued notice in this regard on Friday.

The CRDA officials led Zonal Assistant Director Narnendra Reddy went to the Naidu's residence this morning and issued notice in the owner of the building Lingamaneni Ramesh. The former Chief Minister and leader of the Opposition in the AP Assembly N Chandrababu Naidu has been residing in the river-front house for the last three years.
The officials also stick the notice at the main entrance of Mr Naidu’s residence. The CRDA officials have given one week time to the house owner, industrialist Lingamaneni Ramesh to get the tenant vacated from the building. If the house owner did not respond by one week, the house in which Chandrababu Naidu is living would be pulled down, the CRDA officials said.

It may be mentioned here that Mr Naidu’s river-front residence located just few meters away from the river Krishna water. The CRDA says that no structure should be constructed within 100 meters of the river water.Meanwhile, talking to the media, former Minister and TDP senior leader Yenamala Ramakrishnudu said that permission was given to construct the house, in which Chandrababu Naidu is living at present, by Undavalli panchayat when Y S Rajasekahr Reddy (present C M, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s father) was the Chief Minister of combined AP state. He said that the river conservator had also given permission to build the river-front house to the owner L Ramesh.

There was no CRDA when the building was constructed, he informed. The former minister described the issuing notice to pull down the Naidu’s residence is vindictive act.The demolition of Rs 9 crore worth Praja Vedika conference hall three days ago and issuing notice to demolish Chandrababu Naidu’s river-front residence caused political flutters in the TDP and in the state as well.(UNI)
