Andhra Pradesh will go to elections next year. The political landscape in Andhra Pradesh saw a big development with opposition parties Janasena and Telugu Desam Party joining hands. The parties are also working on coordinating with each other and focusing on seat sharing and others.
Amid this, a sensational development happened as the Supreme Court served notices to CBI and other defendants in the cases of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. The Court asked the defendants why not the petition should be accepted. The next hearing was posted to January.
The petition was filed by YSRCP MP Kanumuru Raghu Rama Krishna Raju. In the petition, the MP sought directives to transfer the hearing in the cases to another state as there is no development in the probe.
The MP said that the cases filed against the Chief Minister were adjourned multiple times and it appears that the hearing in these cases would not start any time soon. He sought directives from the Supreme Court to transfer the case to another state.
In response to the petition, the Supreme Court served notices to the investigating agency, the Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI), and asked why the hearing in these cases is getting delayed. The Apex Court also asked the agency why the petition should not be accepted.
While adjourning the next hearing to January, the Supreme Court sent notices to the defendants in the case to respond. We have to wait and see how the defendants would respond to the notices.
It is known that the CBI filed as many as 11 cases against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in connection with the alleged misappropriation of assets. He was arrested and sent to jail in connection with the cases.
