- BS Yeddyurappa has not proved his allegations against CM Siddaramaiah so far.
- Congress leaders urge the PM Narendra Modi to conduct judicial enquiry against BJP
Recently BS Yeddyurappa, state president of BJP alleged that CM Siddaramaiah has sent ₹ 1000 crores to the high command. Responding to this CM challenged him to prove his allegation or get retirement from politics.
Yeddyurappa had said that Enforcement Directorate had seized a diary from Govindaraju’s house, which contained the details of kick back money. Responding to Yeddyurappa’s allegation Higher Educational Minister Basavaraja Rayareddy questioned about the credibility of his allegation. “Revealing the information of IT raid to a third person is a violation of IT law u/s 138 of IT Act. Now we want to know from where Yeddyurappa got this information?” he asked.
Health Minister KR Rameshkumar asked “Is IT department a wing of BJP? or when did Yeddyurappa join IT department?”
“Siddaramaiah has not given kick back to the high command. If at all he has given, then we’ll not allow him to remain in the power for a single minute” – KR Ramesh Kumar, Health Minister
However Yeddyurappa has not given any documentary evidence to his allegations so far. But now Yeddyurappa himself has fallen into the trap which he laid for his political rivals. A video record of his conversation with Union Minister Ananthakumar, has revealed that even state BJP leaders also have sent kick back to their high command.
Congress leaders have urged PM Narendra Modi to conduct a judicial enquiry against BJP. Water Resources Minister MB Patil, MLC VS Ugrappa released the CD to the media on Monday.
Reacting to the release of this Video BJP state spokesman G Madhusudan said that the congress leaders have tampered the video and have released it to the media.
