Hyderabad, Jan 31: YS Vijayamma, YSR Congress party honorary president and MLA has appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to direct CBI to act impartially in the investigation against her son YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Kadapa MP.
"The way the CBI has been carrying on its investigations into various cases, (it is) desperately trying to establish a link to YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who never occupied any public office before May 2009, leaves much to be desired. The CBI has been pressurising witnesses by using all its brute power and threatening them of dire consequences to give evidence against Jaganmohan Reddy," alleged Vijayamma in a five-page letter to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
She further said that the cases against Jagan that includes amassing of illegal wealth, investigation into the Emaar Properties case and other related case proved that the direction of the case "which is ultimately to target Jagan and not the real culprits," she alleged.
Talking about her previous letter to Prime Minister in Aug last year, she said, "I sincerely expected that your office would intervene and do something to bring sanity to the ongoing CBI investigations; unfortunately things have only worsened."
"Sir, the CBI is working under your administrative control. We cannot imagine that knowingly you are keeping quiet over the goings on, given your background as an honest person. May we appeal to you to issue instructions to the CBI to act impartially without coming under pressure of their political bosses," Vijayamma appealed to the Prime Minister.
