In a shocking development, former chief minister and TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu had got into trouble as the ACB's court had decided to take up a petition filed by Lakshmi Parvati in 2005 alleging that Chandrababu should be earning more than his income when he was the chief minister. The High Court then stayed the proceedings of the case. However, the ACB court judge on Monday issued an order for the trial to be initiated in the absence of any further investigation. The case has been postponed to the 25th of this month, pointing to the record of Laxmiparvati's statement.
Lakshmi Parvati accused Chandrababu Naidu as the chief minister and demanded an inquiry into the matter. However, Chandrababu filed an impeachment petition. The ACB court dismissed the appeal. He filed a petition in 2005 and stayed the proceedings in the ACB court and denied Lakshmi Parvati's request to cancel the stay. The case has been going on ever since.
Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that civil and criminal cases should not exceed six months. Recently, the case was brought before the ACB court. The counsel for Chandrababu argued that the High Court's stay in 2005 would continue till further orders.
But Lakshmi Parvati argued that the Supreme Court's verdict on the civil and criminal cases. It was also brought to the court's notice that there were no extension orders. The judge observed the ACB court's ruling in 2005 and held that the stay of the High Court in 2005 had not been extended and with Supreme Court's special ruling, the court has directed to launch a probe.
