Amaravati: Revenue officials in Andhra Pradesh served a notice on former chief minister and Leader of Opposition Assembly N Chandrababu Naidu to vacate his house which is situated on the banks of Krishna river, on Saturday

With rising Krishna water threatening to inundate houses along its banks, revenue officials asked the residents to move to safer places. Officials said notices were served on 32 houses to prevent any loss of life.

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief and Leader of Opposition in the Andhra Assembly Chandrababu Naidu and his family members had left the house a few days ago. As nobody was available at his house, Undavalli Village Revenue Officer (VRO) pasted the notice on its entrance. It is reported that when the VRO had gone to his residence to issue the notice, he was stopped at the entrance by the security staff and was not allowed inside. So the official pasted the notice at the entrance gate and left instructing them to vacate the residence in view of the flood situation.

Earlier on Friday, Chandrababu alleged that there was a conspiracy being hatched against him after a drone was seen hovering over his house. Irrigation Water Resources Minister P Anil Kumar, however, clarified that the drone was deployed by the Water Resources Department to take visuals of the water and monitor the flood situation. Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had earlier alleged that Chandrababu was living in a house built on river bank in a violation of the River Conservancy Act and other environment norms.

Meanwhile tens of villages and hundreds of acres of farm land remained under a sheet of water in Krishna and Guntur districts of Andhra Pradesh on Saturday, even as the flood fury in river Krishna showed signs of abatement. In all 11,553 people in Krishna and Guntur districts have been moved to 56 relief camps where food and drinking water are being provided. According to the State Disaster Management Authority, a total of 4,352 houses in the two districts remained marooned.
