Hyderabad: YSR Congress president YS Jaganmohan Reddy wasted no time and got to political business shortly after returning to his Lotus Pond residence from the Chanchalguda jail on Wednesday.

The 40-year-old political leader held various meetings with the party`s present and former MPs and MLAs and discussed the political scenario and strategy to be adopted by the party.

He even got the feedback from several leaders regarding the ground situation in various constituencies.

Jagan also held series of meetings with Seemaandhra region employees who are against the bifurcation of the state. He even assured them of the presence of his partymen during the agitation demanding a unified Andhra at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on Friday.

A special CBI Court had on Tuesday granted bail to Jagan, who had been in jail for 16 months after being arrested in a disproportionate assets case on May 27, 2012.
The journey of 10km from Chanchalguda jail in the Old City to his residence at Lotus Pond at the posh Jubilee Hills here took almost five hours as Jagan`s supporters cheered and followed his convoy.

Congress faced criticism from the Opposition after Jagan was released with the BJP finding flaws with CBI for not opposing Jagan’s bail saying, that the Congress had "blatantly" misused the investigating agency for political purposes in the alleged financial anomalies that had taken place during the rule of a Congress chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy.
