Babu used UF govt. to shirk CBI inquiry: YSRCP


Hyderabad, December 15: In wake of the former CBI Director, US Mishra’s claim that the investigation agency has to yield to political pressure, YSR Congress has said that N Chandrababu Naidu has benefited by extending support to the United Front and NDA government and was left unscathed in various scams and serious charges.

Though there were allegations against Chandrbabu Naidu in the past, from Telgi’s stamps scam to Tehalka’s startling revelations, he was untouched by the CBI as he played a key role in the Central politics by extending support., Naidu on his part did not work for the interests of the State but had put his personal interests on top,” YSRCP MLA G Sreekanth Reddy told reporters here on Saturday.

Though he has been boasting of integrity and being the influential person during his nine year term as Chief Minster from 1995, he did not bring a single project to the State as he was working to further his personal and business interests by extending support to the Centre, he said adding that he was a mute spectator when upper riparian States were building dams throttling river water flow to our State..

“Be it IK Gujral, Deve Gowda or AB Vajpayee, Naidu had his own personal agenda and as US Mishra had commented that CBI will be under pressure from politicians, he managed to see that he is not named even in a single case, “Reddy said.

While his party ministers and MLAs were arrested in the Telgi stamps scam case, his name did not figure nor was he questioned. When Tehalka had named Chandrababu Naidu as on of the richest politicians with high influence having properties in MalaysiaSingapore and other places, there was no Disproportionate Assets case was registered against him.

When we correlate the US Mishra’s remarks and Naidu’s track record everything will fall in place, Sreekanth Reddy said adding that truth will come out one day or the other.

“YS Jagan Mohan Reddy stood for truth and we knew that there would be pressure from the Government and the proceedings went according to the familiar script. We firmly believe that our leader will come out clean as the charges leveled are false and concocted,” he said.  

If Naidu wants to prove his innocence, he should volunteer for a probe and clear all the charges he is facing, he said.

When asked about Telangana, he said, as per Article 3, the Centre is empowered to carve out a new state by itself, but the Congress without spelling out its stand has called for an All Party Meeting which shows that it is not serious on the issue.

The Congress should make clear its stand first, he demanded.
