Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader Yanamala
Ramakrishnudu on Sunday hit out at the Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS
Jaganmohan Reddy for writing a letter to the Chief Justice of India complaining
about Supreme Court judges.
Ramakrishnudu, a former finance minister, said that
the letter was like the devil quoting from the scriptures.
Earlier this week, Andhra Pradesh Chief
Minister wrote a letter to the CJI complaining against a senior judge of the
Supreme Court, who is believed to the “CJI-in-waiting” – Justice N V
In the letter, Reddy alleged that Ramana has been “influencing the
sittings of the (Andhra Pradesh) High Court including the roster of a few
Honourable Judges” and that he and some of his close aides were the “beneficiaries
of various questionable transaction of land.”
The Andhra CM also claimed that Judge
Ramana was acting on behalf of the state’s prime opposition Telugu Desam Party
headed by former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu.
Calling the letter laughable, senior TDP
leader Ramakrishnudu said that Reddy was accused in 12 CBI chargesheets and was
being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in five cases.
that while the Andhra CM was talking about violation of the constitution, he
himself had been undermining the rule of law.
