Is the CBI-Jagan saga going to take down another minister, this time from Telangana? According to top sources, the CBI is all set to name a senior minister in another chargesheet it is expected to file in the next few days before the local court in cases pertaining to the disproportionate assets of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
It is learnt that the investigating officers have obtained clearance from top bosses of the agency in Delhi for naming the minister, among others, including some leading industrialists.
Already, three ministers lost their jobs, thanks to the cases against Jagan. While one of them, Mopidevi Venkataramana was arrested and is in jail, two others, Dharmana Prasada Rao and Sabita Indra Reddy, resigned from the Cabinet after they were named in the CBI chargesheet some months ago.
Meanwhile, the local unit of the CBI is expected to have new faces. DIG Venkatesh, whose deputation with the CBI expired on July 16 and is continuing on extension, is expected to be relieved soon once the final chargesheet is prepared. Another officer of the rank of SP, Chandrasekhar, is being moved from Mumbai to Hyderabad. In a related development, Jagan moved a bail plea in a local court Wednesday.
