AMARAVATI:
 
THE Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy Government on Thursday cancelled a controversial Government order issued by the previous Chandrababu Naidu-led dispensation, paving the way for the CBI to probe various cases in Andhra Pradesh. On November 8, 2018, the ruling TDP had issued a Government Order (GO) withdrawing the “general consent” accorded to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to carry out investigations and raids in the State.
 
“In exercise of the powers conferred by Section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946, the Government hereby withdraws the general consent accorded to all the members of the Delhi Special Police Establishment to exercise the powers and jurisdiction under the said Act in the State of AP,” the GO had said. The then AP Dy CM (Home) N China Rajappa had said the reason to withdraw the consent was allegations against the top officials of the country’s premier investigation agency.
