Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has opened a front against a senior Supreme Court judge. Reddy made complains against the judge to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court S.A.Bobde. The Chief Minister has made many allegations against the judge of the Supreme Court. He said in his charge that the judge is working for the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and is very close to the state’s Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Chandrababu Naidu.
In a letter to the Chief Justice, Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy expressed “grief and anguish” that “institutions like the High Court are being used to destabilize a democratically elected government”. However, it is unclear how these so-called efforts are being made.
The letter also said that Supreme Court judges are influencing the Andhra Pradesh High Court. The Chief Justice of the High Court and four other judges have been named in the letter. It has been alleged that the roster of high court judges is being affected in the management of cases. These cases are important for Chandrababu Naidu and the Telugu Desam Party.
The Chief Minister referred to those cases and shared documents as evidence, in which decisions have been given in favor of the leaders of the Telugu Desam Party. Such a decision is also mentioned, which hinders the government’s work in investigating the policy to uncover and the alleged corruption in the tenure of Chandrababu Naidu.”
This formal complaint was submitted on Thursday (8 October). It is to be noted that this letter was written to the CJI on 6 October and Jaganmohan Reddy met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi on this day. While stating this meeting as a regular meeting, it was said that other issues of Andhra Pradesh including pending dues were discussed. With this, Jagan Reddy met Home Minister Amit Shah about two weeks ago.
