YSR Congress honorary president Y S Vijayamma who met the Prime Minister on Wednesday morning, met the CPI senior leader A B Bardan in the evening. She has complained to him that her son and Kadapa MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy was being harassed by the CBI at the instance of the Congress party. She has also explained the style of functioning of the CBI Joint Director Lakshmi Narayana and how he was allegedly leaking news about his investigation into Jagan’s assets case to select media.
Speaking to the media later, Bardan has said that the style of functioning of Lakshmi Narayana was improper. He said it was wrong to leak information on the investigation to a section of the media. If the JD had any information, he should submit it to the court and not to the media, he added. He has asked the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to take action against Lakshmi Narayana.
Stating that it was unfortunate that the agency was being used for political purposes, Bardan has asked the Prime Minister should ensure that such incidents would not recur. He has also demanded an explanation by Lakshmi Narayana on information leaks to a section of the media.
Vijayamma has earlier met Janata Dal United chief Sharad Yadav and submitted a memorandum on the CBI’s style of functioning.
Vijayamma was accompanied by MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy, former MP Mysoora Reddy, MLAs Shobha Nagi Reddy, Sucharita and others.
