Court orders such a decree for TDP MLA Atchannayadu

Between the lockdown and the corona transition, the ACB (Anti Corruption Bureau) court in Andhra Pradesh sent TDP MLA Atchannayadu on 14-day remand in connection with alleged irregularities in the Employees' State Insurance Scheme. The judge also ordered him to be given medical treatment due to his health condition. Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MLA K Atchannayadu from Tekkali in Andhra Pradesh was arrested by the Anti-Lunar Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Friday for allegedly being involved in procuring medicines for ESI hospitals. This is the case when he was a minister in the N. Chandrababu Naidu government.

Atchannayadu worked as the Labor Minister in the TDP government and is considered very close to the party chief N Chandrababu Naidu. After coming to power last May, Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy ordered an inquiry into the deals and contracts awarded by the previous TDP regime, during which the ACB investigated alleged irregularities in the procurement of medicines for ESI hospitals.

On Friday morning, Atchannayadu was arrested when ACB officials visited his house in Tekkali in Srikakulam district, which had more than 100 police teams. He was taken to Vijayawada and later produced in court. According to ACB sources, Atchannayudu allegedly asked the directors of Insurance Medical Services to contract or purchase orders to a Hyderabad-based firm of his choice. The directors allotted work to the firm without calling for tenders. The firm had allegedly violated the norms of the agreement but was still paid more than Rs 4 crore.
