State cabinet gives clean chit to Dharmana

Andhra Pradesh cabinet giving a clean chit to Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasad Rao in the 26 GOs case has exposed the double standards of Congress and its vindictive attitude towards YSR family members with the aim of keeping YS Jagan Mohan Reddy away from the people using CBI as a tool to settle political scores, YSR Congress party today said.

Talking to media, party leaders Konatala Ramakrishna and DA Somayajulu said, “The state did not file a counter in court in the 26 GOs case as it wanted to keep Jagan in jail as there would be no fit case had it defended the GOs contending that they were in tune with the government policies.” It allowed things to go its way by using CBI to arrest Jagan (52nd respondent) unlawfully while the first ten respondents in the case were allowed to go free, they added.

As a prelude to Jagan’s arrest, the State has sacrificed Mopidevi Venkataramana to showcase their fairness but the cabinet decision to give a clean chit to Dharmana has exposed its double standards and its intention of trying to keep Jagan away from people, they said.
