Following the arrest of former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu in connection with an alleged misappropriation of government funds case, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has declared a statewide shutdown in Andhra Pradesh on Monday. Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party (JSP) has also extended its support to the bandh.

TDP supporters staged protests against Naidu’s arrest in Prakasam on Saturday, burning tires as a sign of their dissent.

On Sunday, Naidu was remanded to 14 days of judicial custody after his arrest in a case related to alleged corruption within the Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation.

K. Atchannaidu, the TDP’s Andhra Pradesh president, issued a statement urging party members, the public, and civil society to actively participate in the protest and ensure its success.

JSP leader Pawan Kalyan accused the ruling YSR Congress Party of engaging in ‘anti-social activities’ in Andhra Pradesh and claimed that the state’s government was ‘harassing’ opposition parties. Kalyan also called on JSP workers to participate in the bandh in a peaceful manner.

Chandrababu Naidu has been transferred to the Rajamundry Central Prison after being remanded to 14 days of judicial custody. Heavy police security has been deployed around the prison to maintain law and order.

The Rajamundry Police have imposed Section 144 within the city limits to ensure public safety.

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) court in Vijayawada remanded Naidu to judicial custody until September 23.

According to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), their investigation has uncovered serious irregularities. The government allegedly provided an advance of ₹371 crore to private entities before any expenditure occurred, representing the full 10 percent commitment by the government. Most of this government-advanced money was purportedly funneled to shell companies through fraudulent invoices, without actual delivery or sale of the items mentioned in those invoices, as stated by CID officials.
