The ruling Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh is soon going to face the repercussions of its decision to pull out of the National Democratic Alliance government and the attack being made by TDP president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to reports New Delhi, the Modi government has decided to tighten the screws around the Chandrababu Naidu government. Instead of directly targetting Naidu, the Centre is set to ignite fire in the bureaucracy so that he would feel the heat.
It is learnt Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is getting ready to give a rude shock to Naidu administration by filing cases against five IAS officers close to the chief minister.
The CBI is learnt to have prepared dossiers about these IAS officers with pucca evidences. Of the five officials, three are in the Chief Minister’s Office and the remaining two are in related departments.
Sources said the CBI would file cases on the basis of concrete evidences of corruption charges against them.
Though the objective of the Centre is to primarily target Naidu, it is not doing so as it would lead to the criticism that the BJP was indulging in political vendetta. So, it is trying to fix Naidu through framing the IAS officers.
These IAS officers, according to sources, have done a lot of favours to the TDP leaders at the top. However, it is yet to be known whether the operation would begin immediately after the conclusion of budget session of the Parliament or wait to strike at an appropriate time.
Already, there have been complaints against these IAS officers.
While YSR Congress party MP V Vijay Sai Reddy directly named some of these officers and is learnt to have handed over the dossiers to the Centre during his recent meetings with the Prime Minister, others too, including power star Pawan Kalyan and BJP leaders have started making allegations of corruption against Naidu, his son Lokesh and a few other TDP leaders.
If the CBI really files cases against these IAS officers, it would trigger a sensation across the country.
Watch out for more developments!
