VISAKHAPATNAM: MANSAS Trust Board chairperson Sanchaita Gajapati Raju countering criticism against her, said she was heading the MANSAS Trust as she was the eldest surviving legal heir of Ananda Gajapati Raju. “It (trust) was usurped by a GO issued by you even as my father’s ashes were still smouldering,” Sanchaita tweeted in reply to TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu’s tweet.
Continuing her Twitter war against Naidu, she said: “MANSAS law campus was given to ILF&S free of cost and students shifted to a shed. The ILF&S was invovled in a scam. So before you sing praises of your colleague, you examine how much he has destroyed the legacy of MANSAS.”

Sanchaita said she was not deterred by the criticism though she was fighting alone against an entire extended family and a political party. She said she would work with double commitment.
