VIJAYAWADA: Additional Solicitor General (AAG) Ponnavolu Sudhakar Reddy criticized Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee chief YS Sharmila for making a U-turn on her earlier comments, regarding the addition of YS Rajashekar Reddy’s name in FIRs filed by the CBI. The FIRs were filed in connection with the quid pro quo cases and other financial irregularities filed against Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Speaking to mediapersons on Tuesday, the AAG came down heavily on Sharmila for changing her words and sought to know what prompted her to level baseless allegations against him and his brother YS Jagan.

He said that despite providing clarifications on certain allegations made by Sharmila, she has not stopped her allegations. “It was Congress MLA Shankara Rao and TDP leader Kinjarapu Yerrannaidu, who wrote and filed numerous petitions in the Supreme Court, asking the CBI to add YS Rajashekhar Reddy’s name to the FIRs,” Ponnavolu added. He further alleged that Sharmila had deliberately attacked him for political gain over her brother YS Jagan.
