It said the letter is an “abject and uncalled for interference in the due administration of justice” by the Andhra Pradesh High Court.

Hitting out at the Andhra CM for writing of the said letter and its circulation in public domain, the Association had called it a dishonest attempt at overawing the independence of judiciary and tantamount to contempt of the Hon’ble Court.

In the 8 page letter, Reddy had accused Justice NV Ramana of being biased towards TDP and also alleged that attempts are being made by Justice Ramana to topple his government. Jagan Reddy has also accused Justice Ramana of influencing the sittings of the High Court in a way that matters important to Telegu Desam Party are allocated to few Honourable judges.
