Kadapa (AP): YSR Congress has hit out at
the ruling Congress in Andhra Pradesh, saying it is creating
problems for their president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is
facing CBI probe over his assets and investments by companies
in his business entities.
Under the guise CBI probe, the Congress is trying to
create problems for Jagan. People of the state are unhappy
over reported naming of YSR Reddy, late father of Jagan, in
an FIR filed by CBI, YSR Congress leader Konda Surekha said
"If unforeseen circumstances prevail around YSR
Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy, his mother and YSR`s
widow YS Vijayamma will lead the party," the former Andhra
Pradesh minister said.
She was speaking to reporters here yesterday after
paying tributes to YSR on his second death anniversary.
Surekha lambasted Andhra Pradesh Congress president
Bosta Satyanarayana, who led a signature campaign to make
Jagan the chief minister after the demise of YSR in 2009.
The Congress leaders, who were loyal to YSR when he
was alive, are now criticising him and levelling baseless
charges against him and his son. This is unfortunate, she
Surekha said 26 pro-Jagan MLAs, who have resigned in
protest against YSR`s name figuring in the FIR, will retain
their seats with thumping majority if by-polls are held.
