Vijayamma meets PM, accuses CBI of "witch-hunting"
New Delhi, July 4 (ANI): Arrested YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy's mother Vijayamma led a party delegation to meet Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh here on Wednesday, and accused the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) of resorting to "witch-hunting" and "greater and heinous conspiracy."
In a letter submitted to the Prime Minster, Vijayamma alleged harassment of Jaganmohan by the CBI.
The letter also accused CBI Joint Director Lakshminarayana of "having an ulterior motive behind the YSR chief's arrest."
"The functioning of the CBI and its Joint Director Mr. Lakshminarayana is giving room for doubt over the very intention of the premier investigating agency in handling the case," the letter stated.
Vijayamma explained to Dr. Singh, in detail, the events leading to the questioning and subsequent arrest of the Kadapa MP on the evening of May 27, just a fortnight before by-elections to 18 assembly seats.
"I also told the Prime Minister that taking the name of Y S Rajasekhara Reddy in the FIR was a wrong move. I also asked him what was the mistake done by Jagan? Why was he arrested when he was just accused no: 51 in the case? I also asked him why Jagan and his associates are being harassed?" she said.
In the letter, the YSR Congress alleged that Jagan was arrested only to prevent him from campaigning in the by-elections, which his party swept.
The YSR Congress won 15 out of the 18 constituencies and one Lok Sabha seat.
"We request you to order a probe by sitting judge of the Supreme Court and also CVC into the manner in which the CBI and its official are acting with ulterior motives against Jaganmohan Reddy and the vengeance with which it is being done," Vijayamma said in the letter.
Vijayamma will meet Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) Pradeep Kumar here on Thursday. (ANI)
