YSR Congress president YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who is being investigated for alleged financial wrongdoing, said on Tuesday the Congress and the CBI had hatched a conspiracy to have him arrested in the next three-four days.

Addressing an election rally in the Macherla assembly constituency of coastal Andhra, the Kadapa MP, who had left the Congress after a prolonged, bitter conflict with the leadership, said the game plan of the party as well as the main opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) was to create anarchy in the state after "I am arrested and put the blame on me for the violence and the stop the byelections".

Eighteen assembly and one Lok sabha constituencies are going to polls on June 12.

"Both the Congress and the TDP know their candidates are going to lose their deposits," Jaganmohan Reddy said.
