The Andhra Pradesh government Friday served a notice for ‘removal’ of an illegal guesthouse on the Krishna riverbed taken on lease by former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu. The Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) issued a showcase notice to M Lingamaneni Ramesh, the owner of the guesthouse.
The property is located on the Krishna Riverbank.
The notice was issued days after the government demolished Praja Vedika, a convention hall built by Naidu adjacent to this house.
The CRDA issued the notice on June 27 stating that at least 10 violations including erecting of sheds have been noticed in the property. “You are directed to reply to this notice within seven days failing which further action would be initiated,” the notice stated.
Sources said, the notice is a warning to Naidu to vacate the premises, and CRDA may demolish the sheds that were allegedly erected as illegal additions to the guesthouse. Naidu is already scouting for a new residence in Vijayawada.
