VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy returned here on Tuesday after a 10-day visit to London and reviewed the law and order situation in AP with top officials.

YSRC leaders Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, Y.V. Subba Reddy and minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy met the CM at the camp office. DGP K.V. Rajendranath Reddy, Intelligence chief P.S.R. Anjaneyulu, additional advocate general Ponnavolu Sudhakar and some other officials also met Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Jagan Mohan Reddy asked the officials to speed up the probe in these cases. He also discussed with officials on the future moves relating to the Amaravati insider trading lands scam and Amaravati inner ring road alignment scam.
The CM discussed with Subba Reddy, Ramakrishna Reddy and Ramachandra Reddy about the political scenario in the state after the arrest of Naidu. He reportedly told party leaders to explain to the masses about Chandrababu Naidu’s corruption.
The Chief Minister is likely to go to Delhi for two-days from September 13 to meet Prime Minister Modi and home minister Amit Shah. He would brief them about the arrest of Naidu and cases thereof.
