BSY paid ` 450 cr to BJP leaders to retain seat: Siddu

Besides, Yeddyurappa had given  ` 60 crore towards meeting the expenditure for the Bihar Assembly polls.

Addressing a news conference after inaugurating Manteswamy Temple here, he said the blackmailing tactics of the CM would not work in coming days and his government would collapse within one year.

He flayed the BJP High command for encouraging corruption of CM without clipping his wings. The government’s decision of ordering a judicial probe into denotification of land in the last 10 years was nothing but an eye wash and it would not serve any purpose. It was not possible to hold the judicial probe since the Lokayukta is already seized of the matter.

Siddaramaiah demanded the resignation of Yeddyurappa so that the inquiry would be fair. “The CM is a big liar. He and his sons are looting the State”.

The Congress leader said all the development works have come to a standstill in the last three years and the government has implementing some works out of the funds released by the Centre. The State, so far, has received  ` 18,000 crore from the Union Government for various works. The government was clearing the bills of contractors only after receiving 10 per cent commission. Siddaramaiah flayed the seers of various mutts for having supported the ‘corrupt’ CM. The government distributed sarees to the beneficiaries of Bhagyalakshmi scheme keeping in view the coming elections to Taluk and Zilla panchayats.MLAs H S Mahadevaprasad, R Narendra, ZP member Shivamurthy and others were present.
