Hyderabad: Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu is likely to face trial in court as the petition filed by Ms Lakshmi Parvathi against him is slated for hearing on November 25. The petition has been filed in the special court for Anti-Corruption Bureau cases.
This has come as a result of the direction of the Supreme Court that all stay orders pending for more than six months should be vacated.
It may be noted that Lakshmi Parvathi, widow of former Chief Minister N. T Rama Rao had filed a petition against Mr Naidu in 2015 on charges of amassing illegal properties that are beyond his known sources of legal income. However, the petition has been pending before the court after Chandrababu Naidu obtained stay orders from the High Court.
It has now been posted for hearing following the latest directions from the apex court.
“Naidu and his family have amassed disproportionate assets by misusing their position. I appeal to the ACB court to register a case and take up the investigation, he (referring to Naidu) should face trial, said the petition of Lakshmi Parvathi.
However, it is for the court to decide on the petition.
