Kadapa (AP): Late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy`s
brother Y S Vivekananda Reddy on Saturday alleged that some Congress
leaders were trying to tarnish the image of the former Andhra
Pradesh chief minister and termed the CBI inquiry against
Jaganmohan Reddy as a "conspiracy".
Vivekananda, who paid homage to YSR Reddy on his second
death anniversary at YSR Ghat here, told reporters he wants to
find out whether the "conspiracy against YSR family is plotted
by Congress high command or by the state".
"A Congress leader files a petition in the court. Court
orders CBI inquiry, which is being conducted by a team headed
by a corrupt and biased officer. After seeing all these
dramatical incidents, people feel that it is all false...I
feel that all these tricks are being played by a section of
Congress leaders to tarnish the image of YSR," he said.
"YSR, who has been the most popular chief minister, had
impressed the people and has a permanent place in their hearts
and the Kadapa bye-elections only proved it. But Congress
leaders are trying to make YSR, who brought the party to power
twice in the state, a scapegoat and also trying to project him
as a thief and is trying to damage his image," he said.
"If this is the case, there is no need for me to continue
in Congress," he said.
He also said that a group of about 80 MLAs, who were
loyal to YSR, will go to Delhi to appraise to party high
command about the happenings in the state politics.
