Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy on Monday said that the national or state Congress has no connection with the investigation into the disproportionate assets case against YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
“Everyone is bringing in Central, state government or Sonia Gandhi for political leverage. State government is only confined to maintaining law and order in the state. Previously there have been cases where ministers have resigned because of CBI investigation. State government never had any connection with the investigation,” the Chief Minister said.
“Congress party has given Jagan a lot of chances to become the leader that he is today. There is no link between his financial irregularities and the election. Jagan using YSR’s death to get political leverage in these elections is not right. He should remember that all the chances that YSR got were because Sonia trusted in him and he worked faithfully for the Congress,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sought Jagan’s custody for 14 days on Monday, saying the Kadapa MP’s explanations during three days of questioning were not satisfactory. Jagan, who was arrested on Sunday in the disproportionate assets case, was produced before the CBI court in Hyderabad on Monday.
