YSRCP MLAs meet Guv, complain against CBI

Hyderabad, June 13,
2013: YSR Congress MLAs on Thursday called on Governor ESL Narasimhan and
complained that CBI has been working under the direction of TDP in probing the
party chief Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s case. They sought directions to the
CBI to investigate the case in an impartial manner at least now.

Speaking to reporters
at Raj Bhavan after meeting Narasimhan, MLAs Srikanth Reddy and Bhuma Sobha
Nagi Reddy said they had submitted a memorandum to the Governor seeking his
involvement and directions to the central probing agency to complete the probe
in a free and fair manner.

hearing with a view to deny bail to him.

The MLAs cited the
instances of CM Kiran Kumar Reddy seeking resignation of Dharmana Prasada Rao
and Sabita Indra reddy a few days after Chandrababu sought their dismissal and
CBI filing memo in the Nampally Court to shift Vijay Sai Reddy from
Chanchalguda jail hardly three days after TDP MLA Revanth Reddy made such a

They said the two
instances had clearly exposed the conspiracy of TDP and Congress against Sri
Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Accusing CBI of
misleading the courts at the instance of Congress and TDP to ensure bail is

against the YSRCP chief so far, the MLAs asked the Governor to direct CBI to
probe the Jagan Mohan Reddy case in a free and fair manner to ensure justice to
