TDP President Chandra Babu Naidu who is claiming honesty and innocence once again finds himself in a payment controversy. It will surely have impact on his 117 day padayatra which he started off in style yesterday. According to information Chandra Babu did not settle payment for the land he purchased for TDP party office in Srikakulam district for Rs 17.04 lakhs. Land owner’s repeated requests to TDP local leaders to settle his payment did not get him the desired results. So he decided to write a letter to Chandra Babu himself asking him for payment of dues worth Rs 17.04 lakhs with interest.
Controversy over non payment of the land came out in open last Sunday when party leaders decided to start party office at the same place when Babu comes to the place during his padayatra. The issue cropped up when party members passed a resolution to build new office for Rs 15 lakhs. Land owner Chiranjeevulu is worried that if the leaders starts party office with out paying the dues, who will pay the amount for the past 10yrs. He even lashed out at Babu for writing his father’s name Sivanarayana as the land owner. He questioned who should be held responsible for all this controversy.
