Hyderabad: Y S Bharati, wife of YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) president and Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy, on Tuesday expressed confidence that he would soon get bail as the CBI investigation into the disproportionate case against him was not proper.
In an exclusive interview to HMTV and The Hans India, Bharati, who is the chairperson of Bharati Cements and Sakshi media claimed that Jagan was 'bold' and 'confident' despite being confined in Chanchalguda jail, as an under trial for the last one year. "God willingly, he will get bail. I am hopeful, he will secure bail," she said and ruled out the possibility of her entering into politics.
She alleged that Jagan was made accused number without being given an opportunity to explain his stand. Jagan did not sign any file as he was not in Hyderabad during 2004-09, she said adding that she herself was in Bangalore for nine months after the death of his father-in-law former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy in 2009. "At that time, Jagan was not even an MP and MLA hence he did not ask for any file. Those who signed the files should be questioned', she said.
She recalled that when Rajasekhara Reddy was the chief minister, Jagan did not seek any favours from any official for his personal gains. Bharati alleged that CBI was not seriously probing case against Jagan. She said, "Though this a small case, CBI was delaying purposefully. In October when we approached the Supreme Court for bail, the CBI sought more time.
The way they are conducting the investigation it appears as if they are not serious." Questioning his detention for such a long period, she voiced her anguish over keeping Jagan away from his children 'for no fault of his'. "Basics rights are being denied to us," Bharati alleged, while accusing the Congress party of controlling the CBI. The CBI was working under the Congress and the TDP. The YSRCP cadre and the family would fight for justice to be rendered to Jagan, she asserted.
She charged the TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu of being 'in pact with the ruling party', while accusing both the parties of 'conspiring' to put her husband behind bars. Bharati recalled that the TDP whip to its MPs and their vote in favour of FDI proved her allegation that the parties were colluding. Bharati declined to comment on Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, saying that he does not have a right to speak about Jagan. She indirectly blamed him for the problems people are facing, by stating that Kiran Reddy had the responsibility to end people's woes.
She claimed that those who made investments in her firms had made profits. "We sold each share for Rs 300, when the price should have been Rs 350. Can Ramoji Rao and Chandrababu Naidu say this confidently," she pointed out, questioning their rationale behind fixing the share prices of their respective firms.
She sought to justify the price of shares of Sakshi media, claiming it was a better product in all respects�international design, colour and latest technology. Also 'Sakshi' daily newspaper has better product value, Bharati claimed and added that it had a readership of 1.5 crore. Besides, the two media houses were supporting 25,000 families.
