Amaravati: Jagan Mohan Reddy, leader of YSRCP who is leaving no stone unturned to become CM of Andhra Pradesh by defeating AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu and the ruling TDP in the 2019 elections with his uninterrupted padayatra, got a huge shock from ED.
Despite all the opposition charges that Jagan’s closeness with PM Modi and the ruling BJP at the centre is stalling the speedy investigation into the disproportionate assets case, Enforcement Directorate shocked him by naming his wife YS.Bharathi as an accused in the Raghuram (Bharati) Cements case in t he chargesheet filed before the special CBI court of Hyderabad.
The ED named Bharati as accused No 5 along with Jagan Mohan Reddy, Vijaya Sai Reddy, Bharati Cements Corporations, J.Jagan Mohan Reddy, Siliccon Builders, Sandur Power Ltd, Classic Reality, Saraswati Power and Industries P Ltd and ten others. Till this date neither the ED nor the CBI mentioned Bharati as an accused.
ED said that the money transactions in the Raghuram Cements deal were linked to Bharati. It has to be seen how Jagan Mohan Reddy and Chandra Babu Naidu react to these developments.
