Court Cases To Pose Hurdle For Jagan Padayatra?

YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is getting ready to embark on the state-wide padayatra sometime in the last quarter of this year in the run-up to the next elections, but the biggest hurdle for him seems to the court cases pending against him.

It is nothing but natural that Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu will not keep quiet when his bitter rival goes on a padayatra to run down his government.

He will try to create hurdles in the padayatra. And the best way for him is to disturb him with court summons, using his influence.

Sources say there is every possibility that Jagan would be frequently summoned to the CBI court during the trial on his quid pro quo cases.

And if he does not attend, the court might even issue arrest warrants against him. This would not only disturb his padayatra schedule, but also help the TDP to launch a counter-offensive.

Even now, Jagan is being hounded by courts. On Friday, Jagan received a dressing down from the CBI court for his absence.

He and his MP V Vijay Sai Reddy were supposed to be present in the Nampally court, but due to the party plenary in Guntur, Jagan’s counsel filed a petition in the court that he would not be able to make it to the court.

The court felt angry for the excuse and said it was wrong on the part of Jagan to cite political reasons for non-appearance in the court proceedings. I

t gave a serious warning that any such absence in future would call for issuing a warrant against him. Subsequently, the next hearing was postponed to July 21.
