On knowing Supreme Court’s verdict denying bail to Jaganmohan Reddy on Thursday, Ambati held a media conference in the party office here.
Addressing the media, Rambabu alleged that both the Congress and TDP had conspired to weaken his party by ensuring that the Apex Court deny bail to Jaganmohan Reddy. However, the party leaders and activists would work more vigorously for strengthening the party and send shockwaves to both the parties, he said, adding that the people in the State were eager to defeat both the villainous parties in the elections. He also alleged that the Congress and the TDP have joined hands to ensure that Jagan remain in the jail, lest their chapters would be closed the moment the Kadapa MP stepped out of the prison. He appealed to the people to realize the game plan of the ruling party and the main Opposition.
Ambati said the dreams of Congress and TDP to destroy the YSRCP remained unfulfilled even as both the parties conspired to confine Jagan behind bars for the last one year. Stating that the morale of the party cadres was high and were working more vigorously, Rambabu exhorted the activists not to get dejected because the party chief was not granted bail. He also asked the party cadres not to fall in the trap of the rival parties as they were playing mind game. Justice would be done after four more months if not now, he added.
The YSRCP spokesperson said they expected that the party chief would be granted bail after the Apex Court passed strictures against the Centre as well as the CBI. He also alleged that CBI prosecutor Ashok Bhan was talking like Congress representative in the court. Stating that they have immense faith in the judiciary, Ambati lamented that the courts have believed the sweet talk of the CBI.
Stating that his party would go ahead under the leadership of party’s honorary president YS Vijayamma in spite of the absence of Jagan, Rambabu said the Supreme Court has fixed a deadline for the CBI to complete investigation within four months and file a final charge-sheet. He said the CBI has so far failed to prove its charges. He also said that the party was ready for local body elections. Dismissing reports about rifts in the party, he said there was no dissidence and added that small differences were common in any party.
