CBI affidavit vindicates our stand :YSRCP

April 26, 2013: YSR Congress Party reiterated on Friday that the affidavit
submitted to the Supreme Court by the CBI Director Ranjit Sinha on the
investigation agency’s status report on the coal allocation scam has proved
once again that the Congress-led UPA has been dictating terms to the CBI and
using it as a tool to suit its political gains.  

a media conference at the party headquarters here, YSRCP Political Affairs
Committee coordinator Konatala Ramakrishna said the CBI Director’s affidavit
has vindicated the party stand that Congress bigwigs have been directing the
investigation of the party president Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s case in order
to deny bail to him.  

“From the
very beginning of the case, we have been arguing that the case against Sri
Jagan Mohan Reddy is a politically motivated one. Ranjit Sinha’s affidavit that
the status report on the coal scam has been vetted by the Law Minister Ashwini
Kumar and the joint secretaries of the PMO and the Coal Ministry has vindicated
our stand beyond any doubt,” he asserted, adding all the charge sheets filed so
far in the case have been vetted and dictated by the officials owing allegiances
to the Congress party.  

As per
the business rules, CBI need not consult any official outside its purview on
the course of investigation of cases except for on the administrative matters.
“But the development has proved that the CBI has lacked in autonomy in the
investigation of the cases and also fully justified the long pending demand for
providing statutory powers to it to run independently without any political
interference,” he said.  

said while the Government has so far not declared whether or not the 26 GOs
were correct, the act of bringing up Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy’s name to the first
accused from being 50th accused in the case has proved that the
Congress has been writing screenplay to the CBI’s action. The CBI has also
backtracked on its promise of filing a single charge sheet in the case, he
said, adding it was all directed by

“The CBI
raids on DMK leader Stalin soon after the party’s withdrawal of support to the
UPA and the calling off the raids at the instance of the PM and Finance
Minister P.Chidambaram had also vindicated our stand that the case against Sri
Jagan Mohan Reddy is a politically motivated one and stands as victimization as
in case of Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav,” he pointed out.

 What happened to Telugu Pride?

faulted the Government for not giving priority in the appointment of Telugu IAS
officers to the post of Chief Secretary even though they are eligible as per
their seniority. 

these days you are talking of importance being given to Telugu language. But in
the appointment of top bureaucratic posts, you are opting for non-Telugus. What
happened to the Telugu pride?” he asked the CM Kiran Kumar Reddy.
