Has Andhra Pradesh Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development Dr. P. Narayana misled the Election Commission of India (EC) by hiding the details of a criminal case filed against him? The allegations made by rival YSR Congress Party (YCP) against the minister appears to be absolutely true if we go by the affidavit submitted by the minister to the EC. He did not talk about the details of the criminal case filed against him during the existence of the erstwhile AP state. The criminal case was booked in Narayanaguda police station against minister Narayana and two of his family members. It is related to forging the material published by Telugu Academy and publishing on behalf of in his private company’s name.
Despite the registration of the criminal case, the cops could not take up the investigation of the case thanks to the clout enjoyed by Narayana. However, the case came to fore following the intervention of an NGO and YCP.
