Guntur: Maintaining that Y S Rajasekhar
Reddy`s regime made land allotments for employment generation purposes, Kadapa MP Jaganmohan Reddy has asked why the CBI did
not look into the allotment of lands made during the previous
Reacting to the CBI chargesheet filed in the illegal
assets case involving him, Jagan, while speaking at his
`Odarpu Yatra` here last night, defended the land allotments
during his late father`s regime.
"The lands were allotted to private companies in backward Mahaboobnagar and Medak districts to generate large scale employment," he said.
"Why the CBI cannot see the land allocation in the heart
of Hyderabad made by TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu at throw
away prices and also during the present Congress government,"
Meanwhile, unfazed by the developments in the case involving him, Jagan is going ahead with campaign in Assembly segments where bypolls will be held.
He is scheduled to tour Narsapuram and Polavaram constituencies in West Godavari district from today. These two
assembly seats are among the 17 constituencies where the
by-elections are due.
The bypolls in 16 of the 17 seats are
necessitated by the disqualification of Congress MLAs who
switched loyalty to Jagan and voted against the Congress government in a floor test held in December last year, while another MLA quit in support of Kadapa MP.
