Amaravati, September 21: Earlier, We said that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandra Babu Naidu has been criticized by the opposition party YSRCP here on Wednesday over the allegation of illegal construction.
From this aspect, The AP Irrigation Minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao had a tough time answering media queries on the illegal constructions in the Krishna river floodplains. A non-plussed Devineni Uma tried to wriggle out by saying that the matter was sub-judice and he would not comment on it.
But, he was reminded that he had in the past served notices to the illegal constructions in the floodplains. The media persons also reminded him that on December 31, 2014, he had surveyed the floodplains in a boat and assured that he would take action against those unauthorized constructions.
On January 1, 2015, Chandrababu too had told that he would not leave any illegal construction. But, now Chandrababu himself stays in an illegal construction built by the Lingamaneni Estates. When this was pointed out, the minister abruptly ended his presser and left the place in a huff.
