He might have met a couple of leaders in New Delhi and narrated his tale of woes, but during his four-day trip to the national capital, YSR Congress president Jaganmohan Reddy failed to impress the national leaders that he was being politically targeted by the CBI.

In particular, the two national parties, Congress and BJP, were unmoved by his gestures and pleas. Even though Jagan could get an audience with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday on the pretext of presenting a memorandum on farmers’ issues, he failed to convince opposition leader Sushma Swaraj to grant him an appointment. Also, leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav, Sharad Pawar, Laloo Prasad Yadav and Farooq Abdullah, all of whom Jagan had managed to meet, were cautious enough not to reveal anything to the media regarding their meetings since Jagan is facing charges of corruption in the state.

Even the MPs who are his late father YSR’s prot?g?s did not meet him reportedly due to his ‘tainted’ image. “Jagan may talk about lack of evidence and political vendetta in the CBI case but many in the party, including some of his loyalists are convinced that his meteoric rise in the business is something to do with his father’s position as the chief minister,” said a Congress MP.

His talk of offering support to the UPA government in future also did not create much flutter in Delhi. Some MPs who are in touch with party general secretary Rahul Gandhi said Jagan’s BJP connections were well known to the high command. “In the letters he circulated to political leaders in Delhi, he charged the Congress with launching a political witch hunt against him after YSR’s death. While his mother Vijayalakshmi equated Jagan’s case with Bofors and asked why Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s house was not searched and why were the family members not questioned by the CBI, the Kadapa MP criticised the PM in the 2G spectrum case. “In this background, is it not possible to take his offer of surrender seriously,” said Nizamabad MP Madhu Yashki Goud.

Rajya Sabha member V Hanumantha Rao also ruled out the chances of the ruling party patching up with Jagan. “Jagan’s love for UPA is only a face-saving gesture,” Rao told TOI.

Meanwhile in Hyderabad, health minister DL Ravidra Reddy charged Jagan with being the major beneficiary of the quid pro quo relationship that was arranged by his father and former CM YSR in allotting SEZs and other projects to certain companies in return for investing in the firms floated by Jagan. Addressing the media, the minister condemned the contents of the letter Jagan presented to leaders in Delhi, including the Prime Minister.
