Ganta For CBI Probe Into Vizag Land Scam!

Ganta For CBI Probe Into Vizag Land Scam!

In an interesting development, AP minister for higher education Ganta Srinivasa Rao on Wednesday requested that CM Chandrababu Naidu order an inquiry by the CBI into the sensational land scam in Visakhapatnam running into thousands of crores, following allegations that he had a role in the scam.

Ganta wrote a letter to this effect to Naidu on Wednesday. He pointed out that his own cabinet colleague Ch Ayyanna Patrudu made serious allegations against the public representatives of the TDP in the land scam.

Besides, the opposition YSR Congress party leaders also made wild allegations against him and others in the land scam, thereby tarnishing the image of Visakhapatnam city as well as Naidu’s personal image.

“Therefore, I request you to order a detailed and thorough investigation by either CBI or CB-CID or a judicial commission headed by sitting High Court judge into the allegations. It would help restore the prestige of Vizag as well as the chief minister’s integrity,” Ganta said.

There were allegations that Ganta was involved in the Vizag land scam with the support of Naidu and his son Lokesh Babu.

Naidu has already ordered a probe by a special investigation team of the police but the opposition has described it as an eyewash. Now with Ganta himself asking for a CBI probe, the issue has turned interesting.

It remains to be seen whether Ganta’s letter is only an attempt to divert the attention of the people and whether Naidu would really order a CBI probe.
