The signature campaign in support of YSR Congress Party President Y S Jaganmohan Reddy alleging vindictive style of functioning of CBI has drawn huge response and is likely to touch two crore mark, the party has claimed.
Addressing a press conference , Party leaders said ‘as on date, over 2.00 crore people have volunteered to sign in favour of Mr Jagan and express their resentment against CBI style of functioning. ‘We have sought an appointment with the President and once we get that we will submit the letter along with the signatures to him,’ they said.
Though they had targeted ‘one crore signatures in support of Mr Jagan’, the overwhelming response has resulted in over 2.00 crore, the YSRCP leaders claimed People have belief in YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s leadership and they strongly believe that CBI has been trying to drag the case to the maximum possible time only to keep him in jail, the party alleged.
On the flip side, the website which was launched for digital signature campaign had just 767 likes till date and just few thousands hits for last 25 days . But still party claim that Digital Signature campaign run in lakhs across the world. While the manual signatures can be manipulated by politicians as they always do with bog-as ration cards & voter ids..
