“Sri Jagan
Mohan Reddy has been jailed for more than seven months for the simple reason of
his coming out the Congress and launching his own political party. Working
under political pressure, the CBI has been going overboard to project him as
the culprit in a case foisted on him as part of the political vendetta. With
biased investigation, the probing officials have been resorting to misuse of
their official position and destroying the propriety of the investigating
agency. We appeal to you to intervene and stop this political vendetta and
victimization of Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy,” says the party’s appeal to Pranab

The appeal
points out that Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy was singled out for victimization by the
CBI while the agency has been applying a different yardstick in cases related
to Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawathi in UP and Chandrababu Naidu in AP.

signatures-appended appeal in soft and hard copies will be sent to the
