Jagan Reddy blames political conspiracy for his imprisonment

Hyderabad, Sept 30 (ANI): YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, who was released on bail jail after 16 months, on Monday accused political parties of conspiracy against him, said that his bail was denied, which in turn indicated misuse of state machinery.

"This is a political conspiracy, where political parties have gone to the court and political parties have utilized machinery in front of them. A bail which should have been given in three months time was already dragged to sixteen months time," he told media here today.

He appreciated Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for his administrative skills.

"Since I appreciate Narendra Modi as an administrator, I want Narendra Modi to change this entire system by bringing every party on a secular platform for the interest of this country. Otherwise what will happen is we will be creating insecurity in the hearts and minds of these people," he added.

Earlier on September 24, Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy walked out of the Chanchalguda Central Prison in Hyderabad after being granted bail in a disproportionate assets case a day before.

Jagan Reddy, who was arrested on 27th May last year by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), spent 16 months in jail on corruption charges.

The CBI has accused Reddy of getting huge investments from various individuals and firms into his businesses as quid pro quo for the favours granted by the Andhra Pradesh Government that was headed by his father and former chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy before his death in a helicopter crash in September 2009.
