YS Jagan demands CBI probe into YSRCP leader's murder case

YSR District: It is better to avoid elections to constitutionally high positions like President, Speaker and other apolitical posts, observed YSRCP Chief and Opposition leader in AP Assembly YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Speaking to the media in Pulivendula, YS Jagan said that unanimous elections to such highly respected positions will further enhance their dignity. He also felt that it is better to have neutral persons at the helm of constitutionally high positions.

He reminded that YSRCP had extended support to AP Assembly Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao in order to uphold the spirit of the constitution. He said that YSRCP had extended its support to Pranab Mukherji as well with the same spirit at heart.

Reiterating his demand for CBI probe into the brutal murder of YSRCP leader Narayana Reddy in Kurnool, YSRCP chief alleged that the Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu facilitated the culprits in implementing the plan to eliminate Narayana Reddy. The police refused to renewal his weapon license and not provided security though the threat perception was very high,  he said and added that all the circumstance shows fingers at high level conspiracy in the operation. Substantiating his allegation, YS Jagan further said that as a result of Narayana Reddy’s fight against sand mafia, the High court had ordered enquiry against deputy CM KE Krishna Murthy son.

He added that it is fit case for CBI enquiry as the deputy Chief Minister’s son is an accused and the Chief Minister’s blessing are seems to be there. So, police enquiry may not bring out the facts, the YSRCP chief said and added that only a CBI enquiry can do justice.   

YS Jagan said that it is foolish to think of winning by physically eliminating individuals and exuded the confidence that YSRCP will win Pattikonda seat in 2019 with a thumping majority.

In an indirect slap, YS Jagan said that the people in power should also learn to love his political opponents. Power may come and power may go but their deeds will remain in history. He also took a dig at defections and said it is improper to protect defectors at the cost of constitutional sanctity and spirit.
