Stop misusing CBI against Jagan Mohan, says his mother to PM

Hyderabad:  YSR Congress party honorary president and Member of Legislative Assembly Y S Vijayamma today appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to direct the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to act "impartially" without yielding to pressure from its 'political bosses' in the investigations against her son and Kadapa Member of Parliament Y S Jaganmohan Reddy.

In a letter to the Prime Minister Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajashekhar Reddy's widow said, "The way the CBI has been carrying on its investigations into various cases, (it is) desperately trying to establish a link to YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who never occupied any public office before May 2009, leaves much to be desired."

"The CBI has been pressurising witnesses by using all its brute power and threatening them of dire consequences to give evidence against Jaganmohan Reddy," Vijayamma alleged in the five-page letter.

The ongoing CBI investigation into the Emaar Properties case, amassing of illegal wealth by Jagan and related cases clearly established the direction of the probe "which is ultimately to target Jagan and not the real culprits," she added.

Recalling her previous letter which she had sent to the Prime Minister in August last year, Vijayamma said, "I sincerely expected that your office would intervene and do something to bring sanity to the ongoing CBI investigations; unfortunately things have only worsened".

"Sir, the CBI is working under your administrative control. We cannot imagine that knowingly you are keeping quiet over the goings on, given your background as an honest person. May we appeal to you to issue instructions to the CBI to act impartially without coming under pressure of their political bosses," Vijayamma pleaded in to the Prime Minister.
