Former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and TDP leader Chandrababu Naidu is haunted by corruption cases. The YCP government is alleging that Chandrababu was involved in corruption when the TDP was in power. Moreover, CID is investigating and filing cases against Chandrababu while he was the Chief Minister. In this skill development case, Chandrababu was arrested and put in the central jail for more than 50 days. Currently, Chandrababu, who is out on bail, is facing more cases. Chandrababu is trying to get early bail to avoid arrest in these cases.
A case has been registered alleging that Chandrababu has committed irregularities in the matter of liquor policy. CID has registered a case that Chandrababu has violated the rules and caused damage to the government exchequer. Chandrababu has approached the AP High Court for anticipatory bail in this case and the hearing on this petition is going on for a few days.
Chandrababu’s lawyers have already presented their arguments in this liquor case. Chandrababu is ready to cooperate with the investigation so he requested to grant bail. It was argued that there can be no irregularities in the liquor policy. This case was filed only for political gain. Chandrababu’s lawyers told the court that 17A Amendment Act is applicable to this case.
After hearing the arguments of Chandrababu, the court will now hear the arguments of the CID. AG Sriram will argue on behalf of CID. The AG argued in the last hearing that Chandrababu should not be granted anticipatory bail as the investigation is at a critical stage. He will make the same argument today. CID wants Chandrababu not to grant anticipatory bail as there are chances of influencing this case.
