Story highlights

Ever since YS Jagan took over as chief minister he has reversed several decisions of his predecessor Naidu. 

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, in a surprise development, ordered demolition of "Praja Vedika'' (government building ) which was temporarily built by former Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu on the banks of Krishna River to conduct official meetings.

Ironically, today, YS Jagan was conducting a collectors' conference in the same building. While reviewing official matters, Jagan announced in the meeting, "the very building and premises where we are holding this meeting is illegal, was built flouting all rules and norms,'' said Jagan and ordered the demolition of the building within next couple of days. 

He also said ''this is the last official meeting in this building''.

Ever since YS Jagan took over as chief minister he has reversed several decisions of his predecessor Naidu. 

YS Jagan had earlier shot down a request of Chandrababu Naidu to retain the official residence saying it is also built violating all the norms.
