Hyderabad : Media baron-cum-politician Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has proved to be smarter than the Indian media, who he accused of “hitting below the belt” by asking him questions about Gali Janardhana Reddy, while he was in Delhi on the day of the latter’s arrest in Bellary. Jagan has done away with the belt around his trousers, keen to ensure he does not give even an inch to his detractors.
At an emergency meeting of the YSR Congress party in Hyderabad, suggestions were forthcoming on how Jagan should shift to wearing an elegant `pancham’ like his father, the late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. But the idea was vetoed as the Kadapa MP is forever in the midst of crowds and it will be difficult for him to handle the pancham without a belt to hold it at the waist.
Meanwhile, CBI sources are tightlipped about if and when the investigating agency will arrest Jagan in the disproportionate assets case. Tenali Rama has learnt the dilemma is because of Jagan’s penchant to conduct Odarpu (condolence) for people who are in mourning. And given that there are people like Ramalinga Raju and Janardhana Reddy who are mourning their stay inside Hyderabad’s Chanchalguda Prison, the CBI is not sure if it should lodge him there.
Meanwhile, the Chanchalguda Jail superintendent has lodged a complaint with his higher-ups against the Reddy from Bellary who has reportedly managed to scribble `Made in Obulapuram’ on each one of the iron bars in his cell at the Jail.
