Jagan’s Letter On Justice Ramana Questions Pliability Of A Sitting Judge, SC Should Take Note: Ex-AG
On October 10, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s office released an explosive letter written by him to Chief Justice of India S. A Bobde. The letter, dated October 6, accused Supreme Court’s sitting judge, N. V Ramana of “influencing the sittings of the (AP) High Court including the roster of a few honourable judges” and cited “instances of how matters important to Telugu Desam Party (opposition in AP) have been allocated to a few honourable judges…” . The letter complete with annexures, has also accused the state judiciary and five of its judges of “bias… towards Telugu Desam Party and its interests, in the nature of orders passed staying investigation, staying enquiry and the rest…” .
10月10日，安得拉邦首席部长YS Jagan Mohan Reddy的办公室公布了他写给印度首席大法官S.A.Bobde的一封爆炸性信件。这封日期为10月6日的信指控最高法院现任法官N.V.拉马纳“影响(美联社)高等法院的开庭，包括几名尊敬的法官的名册”，并列举了“对泰卢古·德萨姆党(美联社的反对党)来说很重要的事项如何分配给几名尊敬的法官…的例子”。。这封带有附件的信还指控州司法机构及其五名法官“偏见…”对于泰卢固党及其利益，在命令性质上通过了逗留调查、逗留查询和其余…。“。。

Over the past week, the CM has been in talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah, amid speculations that his party could join the National Democratic Alliance.
这封措辞强硬的信还指控大法官拉马纳的两个女儿是“各种可疑交易的受益者”(根据内阁小组委员会调查的主要报告)。对于首次上台的CM和他的YSR国大党政府来说，这封信似乎来得正是时候。YSR国大党政府于2019年在美联社上台。在过去的一周里，CM一直在与印度总理纳伦德拉·莫迪(Narendra Modi)和印度人民党(Bharatiya Janata Party)主席阿米特·沙阿(Amit Shah)进行谈判，外界猜测他的政党可能会加入全国民主联盟(National Democratic Alliance)。
On Monday evening, the Andhra Pradesh high court ordered a CBI enquiry into alleged “derogatory comments” made by YSRCP leaders on social media against the judiciary.
