Ex CBI Officer to Contest Next Year Polls in Andhra Pradesh
Former CBI joint director VV Lakshminarayana, who recently indicated that he would start his political journey said he would contest the elections in Andhra Pradesh scheduled next year and soon announced his political agenda and policy matters. The former IPS officer who had served as joint director of CBI on deputation and probed into cases such as the Satyam scam, quid-pro-quo investments involving YSR Congress chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, among others, told reporters in Hyderabad that Lok Satta founder and former MLA Jayaprakash Narayan had met him and offered him to lead the party.
Lakshminarayana, who had been touring the state for the past several months after voluntarily retiring from the post in the CBI, had last month released what he called the ‘peoples manifesto’ and highlighted need for ‘zero-budget’ politics. Lakshminarayana added that other leaders from Telangana Peoples Party, AAP and others have also extended support to him.
