Hyderabad, Nov 21 : The YSR Congress Party on Wednesday accused CBI of playing into the hands of Congress and TDP and adopting delaying tactics to deny bail to its President Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Party spokesman Ambati Rambabu told media persons here that CBI, instead of filing its counter on the bail petition of Jagan Mohan Reddy, sought time once again with a view to delay bail for him. “The stance of CBI is really unfortunate,” he observed.
“CBI should have filed its counter today but shrewdly sought time once again leading to the adjournment of the hearing on the bail petition of Jagan Mohan Reddy to November 23,” he said, accusing CBI of dancing to the tunes of Congress and TDP.
With a view to keep Jagan Mohan Reddy in jail for a long time, CBI has been adopting the same delaying tactics in all courts including the Supreme Court from the very beginning, Rambabu charged.
“CBI should recognize the fact it is not above the constitution and stop working as a political party,” Rambabu said and asked it to work like a professional investigating agency.
Warning the CBI that people have been watching its unjustified actions in Jagan Mohan Reddy’s case and will respond suitably at the most appropriate time, Rambabu said that the country’s premier investigative agency has become a political tool in the hands of Congress and TDP.
Rambabu said that Jagan Mohan Reddy will complete six months in jail by November 27 and people are at a loss to understand as to why he has been jailed like a convicted prisoner for so long a period.
