Why the Special court dealing with the CBI cases on YSRC president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is dilly dallying and postponing regular trial again and again? There is a strong rumor afloat in political circles that Jagan's deal with the BJP has now brought the court trials to a grinding halt sparking rumours of a quid pro quo with the NDA Government in the political circles.

This is the moot question asked by everyone in the background over the further postponement of the trial in 3 chargesheets on Jagan in the CBI probing the alleged Quid pro quo charges of the Disproportionate assets cases. Jagan appeared with Vijaisai Reddy in the CBI court today but the case has been postponed again to March 6. Although eleven chargesheets have been filed against Jagan who was jailed for more than a year and bailed out in September 2013 (16 months later but in time for general elections of 2014), the court is yet to commence the trials.

Both Jagan and his chartered accountant turned YSRC general secretary Vijaysai Reddy appeared in court for more than five times since last November, the CBI court is yet to take stock of the situation. While on the one hand, the ED has been taking swift action and ceasing properties and freezing bank accounts, the snail pace of the CBI court has been a major disappointment for the political elements that want Jagan permanently taken off from state politics.

We all know that the CBI had filed the 11th charge sheet in September 2014 accusing Jagan of getting investments running into several crores from various individuals and firms into his businesses as "quid pro quo" for favors bestowed on them during the tenure of his father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, who was Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister between 2004 and 2009 . The first charge sheet was filed against Jagan and 12 others on March 31, 2012. The CBI had charged that Jagan had amassed crores of rupees as investment into his scores of companies including Sakshi newspaper and Sakshi TV , money laundered by his brief case companies etc. So far ED had freozen banks accounts and seized properties and Fixed deposits worth Rs. 910 crore in all .
