Once in a while, Income Tax Officials or ACB Authorities conduct raids at the properties belonging to the Politicians of Ruling Parties. There were few IT Raids on TDP Leaders in the past fours years but State Government responded seriously only when Minister P Narayana became a target.
In September 2016, IT Raids were conducted on houses and offices of TDP MLA Modugula Venugopal Reddy.
Within just a month, TDP Chittoor MLA DK Satya Prasad became a target of IT Officials regarding Rs 265 crore tax evasion.
JC Diwakar Reddy's Son-in-Law and MLC JC Deepak Reddy was taken into custody for alleged land encroachment.
In May 2017, CBI raided the house of TDP MLA Vakati Narayana Reddy in connection with Rs 200 crore banking fraud.
TDP Government hasn't even condemned any of those raids or arrests. Only when IT Raids were conducted at the properties owned by Municipal Minister P Narayana, CM Chandrababu Naidu projected it as witch-hunt of BJP and as an attack on AP. TDP Cabinet had gone to the extent of demanding withdrawal of security for IT Officials.
Opposition Parties say, P Narayana is believed to be benami of Chandrababu and hence he responded in such a manner. Few more close aides of TDP Supremo could be the next target.
