Former chief minister and Telugu Desam Party supremo Chandrababu Naidu is likely to vacate his river-bank house at Undavalli. As the present government is making big issue out of the encroachments on the river and is set to demolish them, the former chief minister is unwilling to continue in the house till the government bulldozes it. The government is also planning to destroy the helipad laid in front of this house and destroy the road laid as it feels that these are illegal and there are enough signs of the government destroying them on priority. This would leave no way for Chandrababu Naidu to stay in the house.
The present government actions are set to give him trouble to continue in this unauthorised and illegal house. It is for this reason, he had reportedly made up his mind to vacate it at the earliest. According to the TDP sources, Chandrababu Naidu had asked the party leaders, former minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao, to find a suitable house for him in Vijayawada. He is planning to have his new house either at Gollapudi or Kanuru and accordingly the TDP leaders have zeroed in on two buildings in these two places.
Chandrababu Naidu is also worried about the security for him and his family members. The government had reduced the security cover for both Chandrababu Naidu and son Lokesh as per the guidelines. While Chandrababu Naidu is the Opposition leader and a former chief minister, he gets the security cover accordingly as per the rule book and as Lokesh is just an MLC and a former minister, there are set of rules for his security which the new government is following. This had resulted in cut down of the security guards that they have been enjoying for the past five years. With the cut in the security cover, the family wants some safe zone, as the present house is not so secure. The government is also planning to withdraw the security at the entry point of Karakatta (flood bank) and hence Naidu is moving out of the house.
