Congress, TDP want to arrest me: Jagan

Kadapa MP and YSR Congress President Y S Jaganmohan launched a frontal attack on ruling Congress and main opposition Telugu Desam Party accusing them of hatching a conspiracy, in concert with CBI, to get him arrested in next 3 to 4 days in disproportionate assets case.

'It is being talked about that I will be arrested by CBI in 3-4 days. It's all part of a large conspiracy by Congress, TDP and CBI', he charged.

Addressing a by-election campaign rally in Jammalamadaka in Macherla assembly constituencies, Jagan alleged 'their game plan is to get me arrested and create violence in the state and stop the by-elections (slated for 12 June)'.

Both Congress and TDP fear losing their deposits in the by-elections (to 18 Assembly constituencies and one Lok Sabha seat) and hence were trying to stall the bypoll process by fomenting unrest in the state, Jagan alleged. He charged Congress and TDP 'want to create a law and order problem across the state after my arrest and push the blame on me'. A special court declined to grant exemption to Jagan from personal appearance in the DA case and directed him to comply with the summons issued recently.

Jagan, who is busy campaigning for his party candidates in the by-polls, will cut short his tour and appear in the court on 28 May.

The party led by Jagan is drawing strategies in the event of Jagan's arrest, party sources said.
