- Vidhana Soudha police had confiscated ₹ 2.4 crore in the Vidhana Soudha premises yesterday
- Kumaraswamy has now levelled a serious allegation against BS Yeddyurappa
Kumaraswamy made the accusation to the media after visiting the Hasanamba temple in Hassan. In the press meet, he urged the police to make a thorough investigation and asked the cops to investigate Yeddyurappa first.
He said that the money was brought from an apartment of Seshadripuram, Bengaluru. "Even the police have got the information about it," he added.
"Only one person in the whole state knows about the money that was confiscated near Vidhana Soudha and that is BS Yeddyurappa. He knows from where the amount was coming and its destination as well. He has all the information about that money. You can ask him if he is ready to tell the truth, but I doubt that he’s ready to say the truth openly. This is the politics of the nation," Kumaraswamy, a former Chief Minister of Karnataka, said.
Siddharth, the lawyer who was carrying the money from the Vidhana Soudha, told the police that the money was brought from an apartment of Sheshadripuram.
Interestingly, Kumaraswamy often makes such allegations but is yet to take them to their logical end. For example, he recently made similar claims against the luxury watch of Congress' Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
But he did not provide any evidence for his claims - then or now.
