YSRCP slams CBI double speak

Press Release

Hyderabad, May 14, 2013: Slamming the double speak of CBI with respect to the multiple charge sheets, YSR Congress has said that the inconsistency of the investigation agency has been an indication of its motives in the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s case.

“On October 5, 2012 it was CBI which told the Supreme Court that it is investigating the case on seven counts and will file a charge sheet covering all the aspects. But the interpretation has been constantly changing making a mockery of the investigation procedure,” party senior leader DA Somayajulu told reporters here on Tuesday.

When YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Vijay Sai Reddy filed a memo against the multiple charge sheets, CBI has been distorting its own version that was told in the apex court, he said. There is absolute fallacy in this interpretation of CBI and it has been backtracking on its own word and trying to draw new inferences.

“We cannot be so helpless in the world’s biggest democracy and hear to such irresponsible statements. The memo filed by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Vijaysai Reddy clearly mentions about the earlier contention of CBI in the apex court and justice should prevail,” he said.

CBI has first quoted that the amount of misappropriation is about Rs one lakh crores and later scaled down to Rs 43, 000 crores. Though CBI counsel Ashok Bhan went on record to say that this  is the biggest white collar crime in the country’s history, value of  all the transactions in the first four charge-sheets is at Rs 1043 crs far less than what has been projected by the CBI and political adversaries.

Even in Emaar case, it has said that there is a fraud of Rs 10,000 crores, later scaled down to Rs 3,500 cores and finally settled at Rs 43 crores.  This shows the style of functioning of CBI.

He also lambasted state minister Kanna Lakshminarayana for his remarks that his cabinet colleagues were facing difficulties due to YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.  “May be he was reacting TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu’s memorandum to the Governor seeking the ouster of tainted ministers, but the fact is that the ministers have filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that the 26 GOs were in order and in accordance with the business rules,” he said.

Congress has the history of using the law enforcing agency to settle political scores and  has shown its vindictive attitude during Emergency by jailing opposition leaders and denying them bail, he said.

Recalling the welfare measures introduced by YSR, who took over the reins of the state on this day nine years back, Somayajulu said, he has come in like a great relief to the nine year misrule of N Chandrababu Naidu who has systematically demolished the welfare fabric of the state by siding with the private players.

YSR, on this day in 2004 signed the free power to farmers file, waived loans of farmers and weavers and has ushered in a welfare state by implementing schemes that had helped all sections of people.

He has taken over the State from TDP which was left it in the lurch and revived the cooperative spirit, improved the living conditions of farmers, weavers, women students and increased the old age pensions.

It was during YSR term that the state has seen the highest agricultural and industrial growth rate which obviously resulted in the increase of overall growth rate, he said. People will not forget his golden era and all sections have benefitted out of his welfare schemes, he said.
