YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is likely to come out of the jail on bail in the first week of August, if one were to go by the sources in the Congress party in New Delhi.
According to these sources, Jagan’s petition for bail would come up for hearing in the Supreme Court in the last week of July. The instruction to the Central Bureau of Investigation from the Delhi bosses is that it should not put up any strong argument to oppose the bail, unlike what it did in CBI court and the state high court. This would facilitate the Supreme Court to grant bail to Jagan, sources said.
It is learnt that Presidential nominee of the UPA Pranab Mukherjee has taken the initiative in securing bail to Jagan as a goodwill gesture to the latter’s support to him in the Presidential elections. Pranab is learnt to have convinced the party leadership that the longer Jagan is in the jail, the more will be the damage to the Congress party. So, it is better Jagan comes out of the jail on bail.
Perhaps, Jagan’s mother Vijayalakshmi has also been sounded about the release of Jagan. That is the reason why she told the party workers in Pulivendula on Monday that her son would come out of the jail very soon and they should maintain restraint.
