Court allows AC for Chandrababu Naidu in jailtext_fields
Amaravati: A local court in Andhra Pradesh on Saturday allowed air-conditioning facility for former chief minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu in the Rajamahendravaram central prison where he is lodged for his alleged involvement in the Skill Development Corporation Scam case.
On Saturday, a group of lawyers representing Naidu filed a petition seeking an air-conditioner for the TDP supremo in the Vijayawada ACB Court.
"In view of the report of the team of doctors of Government General Hospital, Rajamahendravaram it is utmost necessary that the petitioner be provided with air-conditioning in his room at the earliest, in order prevent rapid aggravation of his skin condition," said the petition.
They appealed that if Chandrababu Naidu is not immediately provided with a cooler environment he will be subjected to irreparable loss and hardship.
A team of doctors who examined Chandrababu Naidu in the Rajamahendravaram jail on Saturday said he is in a stable condition and there is no need to shift him to a hospital but recommended a cooler environment.
Chandrababu Naidu is under judicial remand in the Rajamahendravaram Central Prison for allegedly misappropriating funds from the Skill Development Corporation, which resulted in a purported loss of over ₹ 300 crore to the state exchequer.
