Bogged down by internal bickering and questions about his style of functioning, ex-CM and TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu earned a reprieve of sorts this week. The state HC turned down efforts by the YSR-led Congress government to revive the Somasekhara commission set up to investigate alleged irregularities in the Yeluru dam project. The commission was set up by the Naidu regime to probe alleged irregularities in compensations paid to farmers who lost their lands to the project. There were even allegations that revenue records had been tampered with. However, following a writ petition challenging the commission’s formation, it was wound up in ’99. The inquiry never happened. The HC thwarted the present government’s efforts on the grounds that a commission that’s already been disbanded cannot be revived again.
