Andhra Pradesh government issued 132 GOs (Government Orders) withdrawing cases against 278 TDP MPs, MLAs, MLCs, Ministers and AP Assembly Speaker, some of them very serious in nature.
Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, YCP (Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party) legislator, filed a case on July 31st against the Chandrababu Naidu’s government for issuing GOs withdrawing cases on the TDP (Telugu Desam Party) leaders.
Alla said that some of the cases include atrocities on women and assault on government officials. Alla appealed to the court to cancel the GOs issued by the State government.
The Hyderabad High Court directed AP government to file a detailed counter affidavit in response to the petition filed by Alla and gave two weeks time to file the counter affidavit.
