Former Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president Nara Chandrababu Naidu was arrested in Nandyal in a corruption case related to financial irregularities in Skill Development Corporation. The arrest of Chandrababu Naidu, who is the Leader of Opposition (LOP) in AP Assembly has created a sensation in AP and created high tension in political circles.
The allegations of corruption in Skill Development Corporation activities against Nara Chandrababu Naidu were made by YSRCP leaders initially. YSRCP leaders have been stressing that there is clear evidence of corruption by Chandrababu and he will be arrested. But not many took YSRCP leaders’ words seriously, as everyone felt it as a political blame game. But with the arrest of Chandrababu Naidu by CID sleuths on Saturday, the skill development corruption case has taken a serious turn.
What’s even more sensational about this case is, it is the first time in the history of AP, where a Leader of Opposition has been arrested on corruption charges. With Chandrababu Naidu’s arrest, AP politics have heated up. Police have stepped up security across the state, to avoid any untowards incident.
