CBI acting like political party: YSRCP

Hyderabad, Nov 21 : YSR Congress Party today accused CBI of playing into the hands of Congress and TDP and adopting delaying tactics to deny bail to its President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Talking to media persons here, Party spokesman Ambati Rambabu said CBI, instead of filing its counter on the bail petition of Jagan Mohan Reddy, sought time once again with a view to delay bail for him. 'The stance of CBI is really unfortunate,' he observed. 'CBI should have filed its counter today but shrewdly sought time once again leading to the adjournment of the hearing on the bail petition of Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy to November 23', he said, accusing CBI of acting to the tunes of Congress and TDP.

With a view to keep Jagan Mohan Reddy in jail for a long time, CBI has been adopting the same delaying tactics in all courts including the Supreme Court from the very beginning, Rambabu charged. 'CBI should recognize the fact it is not above the constitution and stop working as a political party', Mr Rambabu said and asked it to work like a professional investigating agency. Mr Rambabu said that Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy will complete six months in jail by Novemberr 27 and people are at a loss to understand as to why he has been jailed like a convicted prisoner for so long a period.
