Naidu once used Adikesavulu Naidu, the powerful political leader and liquor baron of Chittoor district to expose the corruption of Dr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. Adikesavulu Naidu provided Naidu his helicopter to expose how YSR had grabbed public lands in Idupula Paya. PNV Prasad who was then close to Naidu traveled by that helicopter and took photographs of the lands annexed by YSR, even risking his life. Naidu used the photographs to malign YSR.
However, YSR lured Aadikesavulu Naidu into Congress later, by offering him the post of TTD chairman. Aadikesavulu Naidu, whose life’s ambition was to become TTD chairman fell for that offer and ditched Naidu. Aadikesavulu Naidu who was an MP from TDP then, even supported the Congress government which was in minority at the time at the centre. PNV Prasad who shot the photographs of the lands of YSR is now in the YSR Congress.
M V Mysoora Reddy played a key role in preparing the book ‘Raja of Corruption’ TDP published on the corruption of YSR. However, Mysoora joined the YSR Congress and said that what was written in the book was at the behest of Naidu and the charges made were not facts. He said they wrote what Naidu wanted him to write.
The latest blow to Naidu is the departure of Dadi Veerabhadra Rao. Dadi was used by Naidu to lash out at Jagan day in and day out. Now Dadi joined YSR Congress and started lambasting Naidu. It is learnt that Dadi assured Jagan that he would expose how Naidu asked him to make false charges against Jagan.
