Andhra Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter and Tel­ugu De­sam Party pres­i­dent N. Chan­drababu Naidu is likely to be named as an ac­cused in the third and last charge-sheet to be filed by the Te­lan­gana An­ti­Cor­rup­tion Bureau (ACB) in the 2015 cash-for-vote scam. If that hap­pens, Naidu will be un­der pres­sure to quit as the state’s Chief Min­is­ter. His dif­fi­cul­ties are com­pounded by the fact that his ex-ally, the Bharatiya Janata Party has also joined the cho­rus against him, along with YSR Congress. The 2015 cash­for-vote scam is about an al­leged pay­ment of Rs 50 lakh in cash to buy the vote of a nom­i­nated MLA in the MLC elec­tions on 31 May 2015.
