YSR Cong demands apology from AP govt

YSR Congress party has demanded an unconditional apology from the state government  for its failure to submit A report on  26 contentious Government Orders of the previous Y S Rajasekhara Reddy government, arguing that the action would amount to admission that there were no quid pro quo deals behind the Government Orders.

“The State government, which is the respondent  in the case, has failed to submit its report to the High Court when the case was first  heard and the Chief Minister's statement that  the government has responded is a blatant lie for which we demand an unconditional apology,” party spokesperson Jupudi Prabhakar Rao told reporters on Thursday.

The Central Bureau of Investigation has identified 26 Government Orders issued during the tenure of Jagan’s father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy as the source of quid pro quo deals benefiting the Kadapa MP’s businesses.

Admission of no deal

However, the YSR Congress spokesperson contended that appointing legal advisers to ministers who had been slapped notices by the Supreme Court would amount to admission of no deal.

“If this is the stand of the state, then YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, his family members and associates  were being harassed for the past one year with investigation and framing of charges by the Central Bureau of Investigation, which would be contrary to what the government has to say,” he pointed out.

In the event that the state thinks there were no quid pro quo, it should apologise for the harassment Reddy and his family was subjected to, he said.

“As we cannot undo the damage done to YSR family, the ruling Congress and opposition TDP should speak out clearly. If the Government tries to own up the Government Orders, there is no quid pro quo case and when there is no case, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy and his family had suffered for no reason and someone in the Government should take responsibility for the entire episode,” he said.
