CBI acting unethical,malafide in Jagan case

Hyderabad, January 24;
Describing as unfortunate, High Court dismissing YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bail
petition, YSR Congress has slammed CBI for its unethical approach in dealing
with the case as it has been changing tune from court to court and from time to

“CBI contending that State
Government is not cooperative in completing the investigation speaks of its
malafide intentions. It did not bring in this point on the earlier occasions
and it seems that CBI has been functioning in a highly questionable manner,’
party spokes person Vasireddy Padma told reporters here on Wednesday.

CBI did not broach the issue
of non-cooperation of government when the bail process went through the CBI
special court to the apex court. With the investigation agency toeing that line
now, we are apprehensive that it wants to keep our leader away from the people
for a longer period.

Eight months have passed since
the arrest of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and 18 months have passed since it began the
investigation, still the country’s premier investigation agency could not find
proper evidence that could stand the legal scrutiny, she said. 

Though CBI had assured the
courts that it will complete the investigation process within three months, it
could not complete the process nor could it gather evidence against YS Jagan
Mohan Reddy, she said.

“We have met the President and
Prime Minister on the issue and brought to their notice the CBI style of
functioning and the undemocratic arrest of our leader. If CBI could not make
any headway in the case and openly say that Government is not cooperative, it
means that the matter is being deliberately delayed and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
need not be the victim for their failure,” she said.

CBI intention is very clear.
If government is not cooperating, whom the agency should pursue, she asked and
called the CBI bluff saying that how could it frame charges based on the 26 GOs
if government did not cooperate.

They could get many details on
the land allotments and other issues relating to the 26 GOs but when it comes
to the bail of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, it is ridiculous on part of CBI to say
that the government was not cooperative.

When a case is booked under
Prevention of Corruption Act, CBI needs to have evidence and enough material to
prosecute a person but strangely in this case, our leader was arrested in an
undemocratic way and is kept away from the people for nearly eight months
without showing a proper case, she said.

We will take up the issue
to the people and mobilise public opinion against CBI and its style of
functioning and the vindictive attitude, she said.
