Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandra Babu Naidu got himself neck deep into troubles by trying to bribe a TRS leader, Elvis Stephenson during the 2015 elections. TDP leader, Revanth Reddy was arrested as he was caught red-handed in the act. The TDP leader met Stephenson at his residence and tried to offer a sum of Rs 50 lakhs and asked his support for the following MLC elections.
Just when things were getting interesting, Chandra Babu bought up the call tampering allegations against Telangana chief minister, K Chandra Sekhar Rao. Babu accused KCR of ordering his officials to track the phone calls of the government of Andhra Pradesh. For some reason, the case was sidetracked ever since then and there was no real intent from the CBI officials to search for further leads.
The latest reports suggest that KCR has ordered the CBI officials to re-open the case and advised them to hold a transparent investigation. The main question is what gave KCR the sudden boost of confidence. Babu is clearly in trouble for trying to bribe a nominated MLA, but KCR himself is facing the call tampering allegations, how will come out clean in this issue? Only time will answer these questions.
