Hyderabad, June 9 : YSR Congress has said that CBI has been singing the tune of TDP and the memo to separate YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Vijaysai Reddy from Chanchalguda jail is irrational on part of the premier investigation agency.
“Close on the heels of TDP writing a letter to Union Home Minister on the alleged additional benefits Jagan Mohan Reddy is receiving at Chanchalguda jail, CBI asking the designated court to keep Vijay Sai Reddy away is part of a conspiracy,” party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here today.
The move of CBI seems to be politically motivated as the investigation agency never had filed such memo even in extreme cases, he said. CBI’s conduct has come under scanner and it had to face the music of Supreme Court which called the Agency as a caged parrot singing its Master’s Voice.
Jagan Mohan Reddy was remanded to judicial custody on the grounds that he would influence the witnesses and now CBI contended that he along with Vijaysai Reddy will do the same thing from the jail is absurd and has political overtures to it, he said.
TDP leader Y Ramakrishnudu, who wrote the letter to Union Home Minister, has some questionable incidents in his public life. While NTR was dethroned, he played a key role to enable Naidu to usurp the Party, its symbol and Chief Minister post, he said.
“Our contention that Congress, TDP and CBI are jointly working to keep YS Jagan Mohan Reddy away from the people is not unfounded. TDP has been providing script to CBI since long. The same points which CBI raised were told by TDP leaders at a press conference some ten days back,” he said.
Ramakrishnudu, who has a long political career, should know that there is no restriction on the number of persons meeting someone who is on judicial remand. It depends on the discretion of the jail authorities, he said.
TDP is scared that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, though in jail, has been able to win the hearts of the people and steer YSRCP to victory in the by-elections. INN
