HYDERABAD: YSR Congress chief and MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is among 13 people booked by CBI in an alleged disproportionate assets case, today said the action smacked of "dirty politics" and claimed he is being made a scapegoat.

A day after CBI filed the chargesheet against him and 12 others, Reddy, the Lok Sabha MP from Kadapa, regretted that attempts are being made to malign his father and late Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy who was killed in a helicopter crash.

In its chargesheet, CBI accused Jagan Reddy of getting investments of several crores from firms into his own business as part of quid-pro-quo when his father was the chief minister.

"Today, I am being made a scapegoat just because my father is no longer alive...You are actually trying to malign someone who is no longer alive...This is dirty politics," Reddy told TV channels in his first reaction to the chargesheet.
