Meanwhile, the CID registered an FIR against Narayana in 2020 on a complaint filed by YCP leader and Mangalagiri MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy that he had purchased assigned lands against the law in Amaravati area. According to CID sources, the then municipal administration minister Narayana, some other ministers and their benemies, with the intention of grabbing the assigned lands in the capital region from SCs, STs and BCs, created fear that the government would take them under the land pooling scheme without giving any package regarding those lands. After that they bought land from them at a low price. Later, the Ministers put pressure on the authorities to issue GO 41 in 2016 to benefit the assigned lands in Manddam, Velagapudi, Rayapudi, Uddandarayunipalem and other villages through landpooling.
