Hyderabad: YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy spoke to CNN-IBN saying the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) was acting in haste regarding his disproportionate assets case. He said it was a plot to arrest him. "Why is the CBI acting in such haste? This is a conspiracy to arrest me," Jagan said.
He also said that the Andhra Pradesh government was trying to create a situation where the by-polls could be delayed. "I was anyways supposed to appear before the CBI court on May 28. The day I shot a letter to the Prime Minister, the same night the CBI summoned me to appear on May 25. The intention is to create a law and order situation so that the by-polls are postponed," Jagan claimed.
He said his mother would continue his campaign if he was arrested. "Getting any feelers from the Congress is a far cry right now. I have not been approached by any Congress leader. If I am arrested, my mother will take up the campaign," Jagan said.
"We will win the polls. And that's what the Congress fears," he added.
