Jagan loses cool when asked about Reddys` arrest
New Delhi: YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who is facing
CBI probe for allegedly owning illegal assets, on Monday lost his
cool when he was asked about the agency arresting mining baron
and former BJP Minister G Janardhan Reddy and his brother-in-
law in Karnataka.
"Why is it you chose to ask me? It is like hitting below
the belt," the Kadapa MP said when asked about his reaction to
the arrest of Reddys.
Janardhana Reddy and Srinivasa Reddy were arrested under
Prevention of Corruption Act after searches at their premises
allegedly led to seizure of over 30 kg of gold and more than
Rs 4.5 crore in cash.
"How it is relevant that somebody in Karnataka gets
arrested and why do you ask me? There got to be certain ethics
in journalism, as I am myself running a newspaper and a news
channel. Ask the BJP or Karnataka," Jaganmohan, son of former
Andhra Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy, told reporters
