YSR and Jagan branches of same tree

The newly elected Rajya Sabha member K Chiranjeevi has said that the Congress government at the Centre had sent Kanimojhi, Raja and Suresh Kalmadi to jail, with a view of eradicating the corrupt practices, though they were part of the government.

Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Wednesday, Chiranjeevi said that eradication of corruption was a must, though it happened in ones own house. He said that the YSRCP Chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and late Chief Minister Dr YSR were the branches of the same tree.

When asked why he addressed a letter to the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on power tariff hike, Chiranjeevi said that he addressed a letter to see that the burden of power tariff hike will not be felt by the poor people.
