A tainted man, throwing ink at the top judiciary
Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, recently wrote to the Hon’ble Chief Justice, S.A. Bobde, in a letter dated 10.06.2020, alleging that certain judges in the High Court seeking to safeguard the rights, for political sensitivities, of the main opposition party, the Telugu Desam Party. For the first time in the history of the Republic, a lead minister has made a senior judge official accusation of political partiality and even corruption.
He also states that the judge of the Supreme Court “has dominated the meetings of the High Court, including a few Honorable Judges.”
In 2012, the CBI charged Reddy with raising more than Rs 1 lakh crore of wealth by misusing Y.S, his late father’s office. Who then was the CM of undivided AP. Hundreds of crore of properties of Jagan Reddy and his associates have been added by the Enforcement Directorate. In March 2013, the Enforcement Directorate attached the properties of Rs. 863 to the president of YSR Congress, Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad, and their companies as proceeds of crime under the Money Laundering Act. In the first exercise, ED attached 1.775 crore value while Rs 749 crore assets were attached in June 2016. The value of the attached properties is Rs 2,524 crore.
The CBI Court has recently ruled that Reddy must appear every week before the Court.
