When YS.Jagan Mohan Reddy was put behind bars, all the politicians except YSR CP hailed him as the hero who has come to clean corruption out of the country. However now that Minister Mopidevi Venkataramana already sent to jail and another minister Dharmana Prasada Rao in queue with damsel sword hanging on another four ministers, he is fast becoming villain for the Congress Party.
Already YSR CP leaders complained against CBI Joint Director VV.Lakshminarayana to Central Vigilance Commissioner CVC, Pradeep Kumar. They alleged that he has been partial targeting only some leaders and leaking information to media favorable to him. Now according to information even Congress own leaders and 22 ministers are trying to pile up pressure on Central Govt and its high command to shift Lakshminarayana to some other place, most probably Maharashtra where recently a vacancy cropped up in the CBI branch.
They allege that if he is allowed to continue then it will be curtains to all Congress Ministers and its poll prospects in the next assembly elections. They say that if he is not shifted they will be forced to look for their future in other parties. While some in the party say one can not shift an officer while the investigation was on without inviting strong criticism, they point out to liqour cases invetstigation where ACB chief was transferred. It has to be seen what call Congress high command takes on CBI joint director. Either way it finds itself in soup as it made hailed him as a hero while he was investigating Jagan’s cases and is castigated as villain while investigating its own ministers.
