Hyderabad: The TDP Whip, Mr D Narendra, has said that the CBI was carrying out investigation against the YSR Congress Party Chief, Mr Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, on the directions of the High Court, but not at the behest of the State government.
Speaking to the media here on Saturday, Mr Narendra said that Mr Jagan was trying to malign the TDP as he was afraid of punishment after the CBI searches. He said that Mr Jagan has to remember the fact that the TDP was continuing its fight against corrupt practices of late Dr YSR. He alleged that Dr YSR helped Mr Jagan to amass thousands of crores of rupees during his regime.
He pointed out that Dr YSR had not responded even though the TDP Chief, Mr N Chandrababu Naidu, had thrown a challenge in the Assembly to order an inquiry by a sitting judge into his assets.
