Hyderabad: Urging the CBI to complete its probe against the YSR Congress Party Chief Mr YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in a stipulated time frame, the Handlooms and Textiles Minister Dr Shankar Rao addressed a letter to the CBI Director, New Delhi, seeking the probe against the Cabinet Ministers of late Dr YSR as was demanded by Mr Jagan. He demanded the CBI to use the services of SIT if needed.
Speaking to the media at CLP office here on Sunday, Dr Shankar Rao ridiculed the argument of YSR Congress Party leader that he has addressed a letter to the High Court after Mr Jagan quit the Congress Party. He said that Mr Jagan had quit the Congress party on September 29, 2010, but he addressed a letter much before it. He said he had not addressed the letter to the High Court hatching a conspiracy against Mr Jagan. He said that the Congress party doesn’t need persons like Mr Jagan anymore because it had great persons like Ms Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, who were able to live in palaces, but sacrificed their properties for the sake of the nation. But Mr Jagan, who lived in huts, earned palaces using politics, he pointed out. He said that nobody, who did wrong doings, will escape from the law. He said that he didn’t appoint any lawyer to argue his case against Mr Jagan. But Mr Jagan, using the services of famous lawyers, spending crores of rupees on them, he said.
Alleging that irregularities were occurred during the late Dr YSR government, he said that most of the ministers worked under Dr YSR have working as ministers even in the latest government.
When asked about Dr KVP Ramachandra Rao’s role in Emaar Properties issue, he said that nobody will escape from the law. Praising the CBI Deputy Inspector General Mr Laxminarayana for his efforts in submitting the required information to the Court, Dr Shankar Rao said that the present government was a clean government. He said that he was luckily to be not a part of Dr YSR’s government when the irregularities occurred in the state.
The Minister said that the irregularities in the Raheja Group would also come to light shortly.
