Hyderbad, Oct 15 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today said Telugu Desam Party's (TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu should stop indulging in double talk on the proposed inquiry into the charges of Amassment of Wealth against the two.

Addressing a press conference here, he said Mr Naidu had earlier agreed to his (Reddy) challenge for a probe into each other's properities from 1978, when both entered politics, and agreed for either a judicial inquiry or a probe by an all-party committee or Speaker.

But now the TDP president was backtracking stating that he would only agree for the probe by a Sitting Judge, he charged.

Dr Reddy said Mr Naidu's ''baseless'' allegations against him that he had amassed Rs 29,784 crore wealth by misusing his official position as Chief Minister during the last three years was only due to frustration.

He said, Mr Naidu, sensing that the mid-term polls to Parliament was a foregone conclusion, embarked on various mass contact programmes with the aim of tarnishing the image of the Congress government by launching tirade against him and his family members.

The Chief Minister said though he was ready to order an inquiry by a Sitting Judge as demanded by Mr Naidu, it was not possible as the Supreme Court and High Court had clearly expressed their inability to spare judges for inquiry commissions.
