Hyderabad, April 15 : Accusing the Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy of trying to influence the courts, CBI and witnesses in YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s case to prolong his judicial remand, YSR Congress Party spokesman Ambati Rambabu on Monday demanded the arrest of the CM, PCC chief Botsa Satyanarayana and other ministers who are issuing different statements at “their will and pleasure”.
Addressing a press meet at the party headquarters here on Monday, Rambabu said that people were willing to buy the argument that the ministers’ had signed all GOs at the instance of former Chief Minister late Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy and they were not at all at fault. On the other hand, the accused ministers have revealed that the GOs were the result of the collective decisions of the Cabinet, he said, adding these different statements were aimed at keeping Jagan Mohan Reddy in jail for longer period.
Rambabu asked the Congress leadership to explain the different stands taken by the accused ministers and the rest of the Cabinet members on the question of 26 GOs.
The different statements are only aimed at making the other five ministers involved in the 26 GOs case further scapegoats in order to prolong the judicial remand of Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy, Rambabu charged.
Already Mopidevi Venkataramana was made a scapegoat in order to send Jagan Mohan Reddy to jail and now just to prolong his judicial remand, Kiran Kumar Reddy, Botcha and some other ministers are trying to influence the CBI, courts and witnesses in the case through their different statements.
Condemning the abusive and vitriolic rhetoric of Finance Minister Anam Ramnarayana Reddy and the endorsement of his remarks by the PCC chief, he said Anam’s statement was faulted even by his own brother. INN
