Earlier this month, the TDP supremo had walked out of Rajahmundry jail on October 31 after the Andhra Pradesh High Court granted him interim bail in the alleged skill development case. Naidu was under 53 days of judicial custody and the interim bail was granted for four weeks.
The former Andhra Pradesh chief minister was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on September 9 in connection with the multi-crore skill development scam case, leading to political turmoil in the state with several TDP leaders alleging that the arrest was nothing but a political "witch-hunt" and that Naidu was held on the basis of false allegations.
