The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) said that YSR Congress president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy got bail due to the blessings of the Congress.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Mylavaram MLA and TDP district president Devineni Umamaheswara Rao said that the Congress had designs to reap a good harvest in Seemandhra as well as Telangana. Hence, it was planning to have ties with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in Telangana and with YSR Congress in coastal Andhra. Both Congress and YSR Congress were hand-in-glove to water down the cases slapped against Mr. Jagan. Five charge-sheets were filed in a month so as to ensure that he would get the bail easily. Though the agitaiton was at its peak in coastal Andhra for last 50 days, the Congress leaders have no concern for it. AICC president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gaandhi were acting like Nero who fiddled while Rome was burning. CBI Joint Director Lakshmi Narayana was transferred while the investigation was on. Another officer Venkatesh was also transferred to help Mr. Jagan. The TDP would take these issues into public, he added. TDP Vijayawada (Central) incharge Bonda Umamaheswara Rao and others were present.

The TDP leaders, earlier, burnt an effigy of Central government to protest against preventing TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu from raising Seemandhra agitation issue at National Integration Council meeting held at New Delhi, in TDP district office premises.
