Lending credence to the Telugu Desam Party’s charge that there is thawing of relations between the YSR Congress and Congress party, YSRC honorary president YS Vijayamma called on President Pranab Mukherjee in Delhi on Monday.
Though Vijayamma and Nellore MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy, who accompanied her, sought to dismiss the meeting as one intended to congratulate the President since the YSRC had voted for him in the presidential elections. But, the timing of meeting raised many eyebrows.
Only recently the Supreme Court, dismissing bail petition moved by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, asked him not to approach the courts for bail until the investigation into the case is over. Also, the CBI appeared to have hastened the pace of investigation into several aspects of the case, and just four days ago, the enforcement directorate attached Jagan’s properties worth Rs 51 crore in connection with the money laundering case. The properties attached belonged to the Jagati Publications and Janani Infrastructure.
After her meeting with the President, Vijayamma said, “Jagan Mohan Reddy and I wanted to visit the President and congratulate him. But after the Supreme Court dismissed his bail petition, I had to come on my own,” she said, adding that she utilised the occasion to explain it to the President the injustices being meted out to them and how partisan the CBI had been in the investigation of the case against her son.
