The demolition of ‘Praja Vedika’ building was ordered by chief minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Jagan Mohan Reddy .The demolition will begin on Tuesday.
‘Praja Vedika’ was constructed next to the residence of N Chandrababu Naidu by the previous Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government. It was being used for both the government and party activities.
After the TDP’s defeat in the recently concluded assembly elections, Chandrababu Naidu had written to the new Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy on June 5, urging him to allocate the building to him in the capacity of Leader of Opposition.
Naidu’s TDP suffered a severe drubbing at the hands of Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party (YSRCP), which got the absolute majority in 175-member Assembly by winning 151 seats.
In the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections too, YSRCP bagged 22 seats while the TDP got just three seats.
