Ponguru Narayana is municipal administration and urban development minister
The schools and colleges owned by a minister in the Andhra Pradesh government was raided by income tax officials this morning, sources said. Ponguru Narayana, municipal administration and urban development minister in the Chandrababu Naidu government, runs the Narayana Group that claims to have a network of 200 schools, 400 junior colleges and 25 professional colleges.
The minister, who is in Nellore now, has denied the raids, though employees at some of his institutes in Vijayawada, 270 km from Hyderabad, are saying income tax officials have combed the premises.
