CBI summons YSR’s close aide in Jagan case

In a key development in the disproportionate assets case against YSR Congress party leader Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has summoned a close aide of his late father and Congress MP K V P Ramachandra Rao for questioning.

KVP, as he is popularly known, has been asked to appear Saturday morning, the CBI sources said.

Currently a member of the Rajya Sabha, KVP was a close aide of late chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, during whose tenure (2004-09), Jaganmohan Reddy, his son, allegedly amassed huge wealth.

The CBI believes YSR showed undue favours to certain companies and individuals who invested in his son's businesses.

KVP's rivals both within the ruling party and also in opposition have been alleging that as the government advisor, he played a key role in government decisions to allot lands and extend other concessions on quid pro quo basis.
