A special court here has deferred its decision on Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy’s petitions, seeking further relaxations in his bail conditions and the permission to tour the country, to November 15.
The court heard arguments by the counsels for Jagan and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on both the petitions on Tuesday. The CBI informed the court that it had some objections over the plea for relaxation. The court direction stipulates that Jagan should intimate both the CBI and the court two days in advance of his tours in the State.
The investigating agency wanted the petitioner to be in touch with it whenever sought for and attend all court proceedings related to the quid pro quo investment cases. Counsel for Jagan submitted that it was getting difficult for his client to attend to emergency situations, where informing the court two days in advance was not possible. The condition should be relaxed as Jagan was president of a political party (YSR Congress) and it was not possible to plan tours always.
On Jagan’s plea for permission to tour the country, his counsel told the court that as the people’s representative and president of a political party he was very much worried about the situation in the State. He was planning to garner parties’ support against bifurcation of the State.
The judge reserved his orders on the relaxation petition to November 15 and would hear further on that day to take a decision on the matter .
