As judgments are expected from the Supreme Court, High Court, and ACB Court in Vijayawada, concerning the Skill Development scam and various other cases on Monday, Leader of the Opposition in AP Assembly Nara Chandrababu Naidu is waiting with a bated breath. It’s going to be an important day for Naidu not only in the ongoing Skill Scam case, but also in a series of other cases.
The High Court is slated to deliver its verdict on Naidu petitions on Monday. It will make decisions on bail applications related to the Angallu violence case and the Inner Ring Road alignment case, along with anticipatory bail petitions connected to the AP Fibernet case, all on the same day. The verdicts were deferred after the conclusion of arguments in these three cases on Friday.
The Supreme Court will hear the special leave petition filed by Naidu in the Skill Development case on Monday. Simultaneously, the Vijayawada ACB Court will announce its judgments on bail and custody petitions pertaining to the Chandrababu Skill Scam case, as arguments on these petitions have already concluded. Furthermore, the High Court and ACB Court heard extensive arguments on Naidu bail, anticipatory bail, and custody petitions. Another hearing regarding Naidu’s Special Leave Petition (SLP) is scheduled for the Supreme Court tomorrow.
Verdicts on Naidu’s bail petitions, along with those filed by the CID and police against him, will be announced on the same day. High Court Judge Justice K. Suresh Reddy will pronounce the decision on the separate bail petitions filed by Chandrababu concerning the Amaravati Inner Ring Road Alignment, Fibernet, and Angallu violence cases. It should be noted that judgments have been reserved following the conclusion of arguments in these cases.
The Supreme Court will hear the quash petition filed by Naidu in the Skill Development case on Monday. The ACB Court is scheduled to announce its verdict on the bail petition filed by him, seeking release in the same case. The CID will issue an order regarding the petition filed by the TDP chief, seeking to return him to police custody.
After the conclusion of arguments on the bail and custody petitions in the ACB Court on Friday, the Magistrate postponed the verdict to Monday. Given this backdrop, there is considerable interest in whether Naidu will receive any reprieve from these cases or not.
