Meanwhile, Chandrababu Naidu's son Nara Lokesh, in a tweet, has slammed the ruling party and dared the YSRCP government to prove the allegations or apologise to the people of Andhra Pradesh if it fails to do so.
"The YSRCP is behaving like opposition in spite of being in power. They are fabricating stories just to shatter the global image of Amravati that Chandrababu Naidu had established," Lokesh tweeted in Telegu.
Tweet by Nara Lokesh:
అటువంటి వ్యక్తి రాజధానిలో భూములు కొన్నారని ఆరోపణలు కాదు, దమ్ముంటే నిరూపించండి. లేక రాజధాని రైతులకు, రాష్ట్ర ప్రజలకు క్షమాపణ చెప్పండి.
