Vijayawada, December 9: Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister Y. Ramakrishnudu said YSR Congress Party chief Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy should learn lesson from today’s order of Hyderabad High Court and desist from making baseless allegations against Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.
Ramakrishnudu was reacting to the high court order, setting aside an order of ACB court for probing the allegations against Naidu in cash-for-vote scam.
The high court, while hearing quash petition filed by Naidu challenging the ACB court order, agreed with the argument of Naidu’s counsel that there are no grounds for a probe into the allegations against Naidu.
On a petition by YSR Congress Party MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, the ACB court in August had passed the order directing Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to probe Naidu’s alleged role in the scam.
Ramakrishnudu termed the high court order a slap on the face of the opposition. He alleged that Jaganmohan Reddy is bent upon maligning the government.
The senior TDP leader said Jagan should remember that by making false allegations and by maligning the government, he can’t come to power in the state. He said it was high time that the leader of opposition stop making wild allegations against Naidu.
