In what is seen as a major face off- between the TDP and the Centre, the N Chandrababu Naidu government in Andhra Pradesh has issued an order withdrawing the ‘general consent’ granted to the Central Bureau of Investigation to exercise its jurisdiction within the state.

The order withdraws the ‘general consent’ given to all members of the Delhi Special Police Establishment to exercise powers and jurisdiction in Andhra Pradesh. The Central Bureau of Investigation was set up under the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act.

Thus what the order, issued by A R Anuradha, principal secretary to the state government, means is that the CBI will not be able to probe any case in Andhra Pradesh.

The order comes in the wake of the running battle between Chief Minister Naidu and the central government. Naidu has accused the latter of using central probe agencies like the CBI to target him and his ministers.
