The CBI Court admitted AP CM Jaganmohan Reddy’s petition for exemption from personal appearances before the court every week. CM advocate argued that weekly court appearances would prevent Jagan from discharging his duties as Chief Minister efficiently.
However, the CBI Judge asked how it can take up hearing as such a plea by Jagan was already dismissed by the court in the past. The Jagan advocate argued that the circumstances have significantly changed now. Jagan has now become the Chief Minister and he has to address people’s issues on a daily basis.
The CBI has eventually admitted the plea for hearing. In the illegal assets cases, Jagan has been pleading innocence saying that those cases were politically motivated with the then Congress Regime playing a role behind the cases. If exemption is given, an advocate can appear on behalf of Jagan every Friday.
