Chandrababu Naidu, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh will not be investigated in the cash for votes scam. The High Court of judicature at Hyderabad for the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on Friday struck down an order of the Anti Corruption Bureau's special court which had ordered an investigation against Naidu.
Naidu moved the High Court against the order of the lower court. Y S R Congress party MLA Ramakrishna Reddy had filed a petition before the ACB court seeking probe against Naidu earlier this year.
The cash for votes scam had rocked the assemblies of both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh in 2015. The TDP was accused of trying to buy votes for cash during the MLC elections.
