Kurnool (AP), Jul 18 : Kadapa MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy tonight alleged that the ruling Congress and main Opposition Telugu Desam have a secret understanding to “defame” his late father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy.
“Though the Cabinet decisions were all collective, Congress is shamelessly trying to defame Rajasekhara Reddy. That is why Congress elders made (Minister) Shankar Rao write to the courts,” he said, addressing a public meeting at Allagadda in Kurnool district as part of his ‘odarpu (consolation) yatra'.
Jagan was referring to the preliminary probe being conducted by CBI, as per a directive of the AP High Court, into the allegations of irregularities in certain land deals during the Rajasekhara Reddy regime.
TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu used to describe the CBI as a “Congress Bureau of Investigation” but he has now demanded a CBI probe “shamelessly” into the issues of land and others, the YSR Congress leader alleged.
