Hyderabad, Jun 25: Keeping his Presidential aspirations alive, NCP leader and Presidential hopeful PA Sangma was in Hyderabad to meet YSR congress chief and Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy to seek his support for the Presidential poll. He was, however, denied permission to meet Jagan and was asked to come back during visiting hours.
Jagan has been in jail since May 27 in an alleged disproportionate assets case. Jagan's party, the YSR Congress, swept the Andhra by-elections winning a terrific 15 out of 18 seats and also the Nellore Lok Sabha seat. His judicial custody ends today and his bail hearing is expected to come up in court today.
Currently lodged in the Chanchalguda central prison, Jagan will not be produced in the Hyderabad court and will only listen to trial proceedings through video conferencing from the Chanchalguda jail.
The court is most likely to grant bail to Jagan who is also accused of gathering favours in the form of investments to his huge business establishments as quid pro quo for the incentives doled out to them while Jagan's father, YS Rajasekhara Reddy was CM.
