YSRCP to appeal to Prez with 1Cr signatures

Hyderabad, Dec 22,
2012: YSR Congress party has decided to appeal to the President of India Pranab
Mukherjee seeking his intervention to stop the victimization of its president
Sri Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy by the CBI.

For this purpose, the
party has launched an innovative programme called ‘People’s Signature for
Jagan’ to collect one crore signatures from the general public on an appeal to
be sent to Pranab Mukherjee. The appeal points out that the CBI has been
burning midnight oil to project Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy as the culprit in a
politically foisted case.

“Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy
has been jailed for the last 200 days for the simple reason of his coming out
the Congress party and launching his own political party. Working under
political pressure, the CBI has been going overboard to project him as the
culprit in a case foisted on him as part of the political vendetta. With biased
investigation, the probing officials have been resorting to misuse of their
official position and destroying the propriety of the investigating agency. We
appeal to you to intervene and stop this political vendetta and victimization
of Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy,” says the appeal.

After deciding to
collect the signatures and send the appeal to the President of India at a
meeting at the party central office Friday evening, senior leader D.Ravindra
Naik inked his first signature followed by DA Somayajulu, Mysura Reddy,
Vasireddy Padma, Janak Prasad, Nalla Suryaprakasa Rao, HA Rehman, Gattu Ramachandra
Rao, Medapati Venkat, Vijaya Reddy and others.

The meeting felt that
Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy was singled out for victimization by the CBI while the
agency has been acting differently in the case related to Mulayam Singh Yadav
and Mayawathi in UP.

The signature campaign
launched in the party office is now going on at a brisk pace with party leaders
and activists meeting people for signatures and getting an unprecedented
response to the campaign.
