"No quid pro quo in cabinet decisions under YSR"
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has said "there is no quid pro quo" in the decisions taken by cabinet headed the then chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, prompting YSR Congress to claim "moral victory" as its chief Jaganmohan Reddy battles graft charges.
The chief minister was seeking to defend some of his cabinet colleagues, who were also ministers under YSR and are now facing CBI probe in the Jagan's disproportionate assests case as well as other related cases like illegal mining of iron ore by former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy’s company.
"The ministers had merely implemented the Cabinet decisions and accordingly the 26 GOs were issued.
"There is no quid pro quo in issuing the GOs and no benefits accrued to anyone," Kiran told reporters.
