Hyderabad, Aug 19: Former Mines Minister Balineni Srinivasa Reddy, MLA B Sobha Nagireddy and MLC Jupudi Prabhakar, who are currently sailing with Kadapa MP Jaganmohan Reddy's YSR Congress Party, met Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy here today (Aug 19) and sought a CBI probe against members of the erstwhile YS Rajasekhara Reddy cabinet.

These leaders met the Chief Minister at his camp office in the backdrop of CBI investigations into the amassing of wealth and charges of corruption against Jagan and the raids being conducted by the agency on the MP's residences as well as businesses.

Balineni, who is now actually a Congress MLA, handed over a letter to the Chief Minister seeking a CBI probe against the ministers of the erstwhile YSR cabinet.

"Since the decisions taken by the then YSR government are being questioned now, it is essential to probe the role of ministers of that government as the Cabinet is collectively responsible," Balineni pointed out.

As the then Mines Minister under YSR, Balineni said he was ready to face the CBI investigation.
