Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has decided not to appear personally in the Dharmabad court of Maharashtra in connection with the Babli project case.
After a meeting with his ministers, Naidu decided to file a recall petition, sources said.
A local court in Dharmabad in Maharashtra had issued arrest warrants against Chandrababu Naidu and 15 others in a 2010 case related to agitations over the Babli project across the river Godavari, and had directed the police to produce them before the court on September 21.
However, a senior counsel appeared on behalf of the AP Chief Minister in the Dharmabad court. The court then adjourned the case to October 15 directing the accused to appear personally before it on that day.
