SC accepts Vijayamma’s Petition on CBN

The Supreme Court has on Wednesday admitted the petition filed by the YSR Congress party’s honorary president Y S Vijayamma, challenging the dismissal of her petition by the AP high court on the assets of the TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu and some others.
The Apex Court has posted the petition of Vijayamma to July 23 for hearing.Challenging the high court’s decision of dismissing her petition, Vijayamma has filed a petition in the Supreme Court, in which she has asked for investigation into the assets of Chandrababu and 16 others.
It may be recalled that the high court had earlier ordered for investigation by the CBI, ED and other agencies into the assets of all those named by Vijayamma including Chandrababu Naidu. However some of the respondents have gone to the Supreme Court and challenged the investigation on the grounds that it was against principles of natural justice that investigation was ordered without giving them notices. The Supreme Court has directed them to go back to the High Court and seek justice there itself.
Following this direction, these respondents have filed petitions in the high court, challenging the investigation. However, after examining these petitions, the High Court has said there was no Public Interest in the case and dismissed Vijayamma’s petition.
Vijayamma has challenged the decision of the High Court in the Supreme Court. Vijayamma has also named Eenadu group chairman Ramoji Rao and some other TDP leaders in her petition. She has contended that persons like Sujana Choudary and CM Ramesh have benefited during the TDP regime and the then government had indulged in misuse of power to benefit them to do favours to them.
