Mundadugu Praja Party chief J Sravan Kumar filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Hyderabad High Court urging it to order an inquiry by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate into the assets earned in the last four years by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, and his son and IT Minister Lokesh Naidu.
In his petition, Kumar mentioned that Naidu and his son had amassed Rs 25,000 crores by handing over thousands of acres of land to businesses in the name of IT development, and in the name of establishment of new firms and of skill development firms for the youth. Kumar claimed that Chandrababu Naidu had allotted 40 acres of land worth Rs 500 crores to Innova Solutions and Franklin Templeton at throwaway prices, and that in general large-scale irregularities took place during the allotment of as many as 57,836 acres of land to various companies.
Kumar also alleged that Lokesh Naidu had appointed his relative Ravi Kumar as the IT ministry's chief advisor and as Chairman of the APNRT Society, and claimed that Chandrababu Naidu and Lokesh Naidu were using Ravi Kumar to gain benefits through quid pro quo arrangements.
Sravan Kumar named Chandrababu Naidu, his son Lokesh Naidu, Government Chief Whip Palle Raghunath Reddy and APNRT Society Chairman Vemuri Ravi Kumar as the defendants in his petition.
