CBI making mockery of probe in Jagan case

May 14, 2013: Slamming the double speak of CBI with respect to the multiple charge
sheets, YSR Congress has said that the inconsistency of the investigation
agency has been an indication of its motives in the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s

“On October 5, 2012 it was CBI
which told the Supreme Court that it is investigating the case on seven counts
and will file a charge sheet covering all the aspects. But the interpretation
has been constantly changing making a mockery of the investigation procedure,”
party senior leader DA Somayajulu told reporters here on Tuesday.

When YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and
Vijay Sai Reddy filed a memo against the multiple charge sheets, CBI has been
distorting its own version that was told in the apex court, he said. There is
absolute fallacy in this interpretation of CBI and it has been backtracking on
its own word and trying to draw new inferences.

“We cannot be so helpless in
the world’s biggest democracy and hear to such irresponsible statements. The
memo filed by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Vijaysai Reddy clearly mentions about
the earlier contention of CBI in the apex court and justice should prevail,” he

CBI has first quoted that the
amount of misappropriation is about Rs one lakh crores and later scaled down to
Rs 43, 000 crores. Though CBI counsel Ashok Bhan went on record to say that
this  is the biggest white collar
crime in the country’s history, value of  all the transactions in the
first four charge-sheets is at Rs 1043 crs far less than what has been
projected by the CBI and political adversaries.

Even in Emaar case, it has
said that there is a fraud of Rs 10,000 crores, later scaled down to Rs 3,500
cores and finally settled at Rs 43 crores.  This shows the style of functioning of CBI.

He also lambasted state
minister Kanna Lakshminarayana for his remarks that his cabinet colleagues were
facing difficulties due to YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.  “May be he was reacting TDP leader N
Chandrababu Naidu’s memorandum to the Governor seeking the ouster of tainted
ministers, but the fact is that the ministers have filed an affidavit in the
Supreme Court stating that the 26 GOs were in order and in accordance with the
business rules,” he said.

Congress has the history of
using the law enforcing agency to settle political scores and  has shown
its vindictive attitude during Emergency by jailing opposition leaders and
denying them bail, he said.

Recalling the welfare measures
introduced by YSR, who took over the reins of the state on this day nine years
back, Somayajulu said, he has come in like a great relief to the nine year
misrule of N Chandrababu Naidu who has systematically demolished the welfare
fabric of the state by siding with the private players.

YSR, on this day in 2004
signed the free power to farmers file, waived loans of farmers and weavers and
has ushered in a welfare state by implementing schemes that had helped all
sections of people.

He has taken over the State
from TDP which was left it in the lurch and revived the cooperative spirit,
improved the living conditions of farmers, weavers, women students and
increased the old age pensions.

It was during YSR term that
the state has seen the highest agricultural and industrial growth rate which
obviously resulted in the increase of overall growth rate, he said. People will not forget his
golden era and all sections have benefitted out of his welfare schemes, he
