'Show proof to back bribery charges against CM'

'Show proof to back bribery charges against CM'
A section of Congress leaders criticised BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa for saying that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had bribed his party leaders to save his chair.

At a party programme in city on Saturday, various Congress leaders said Yeddyurappa has made wild charges that Siddaramaiah had paid over Rs 1,000 crore bribe to his bosses in Delhi. Minister K J George said Yeddyurappa should be releasing documents to support his charges that bribe was paid. Otherwise, he should retire from politics as suggested by Siddaramaiah, he said. State party vice president B L Shankar said the high command is not in need of money from Karnataka.

Also, it is not possible to raise such huge funds from Karnataka, he added. Shankar wondered how Yeddyurappa could access the Enforcement Directorate’s documents. The BJP leader on Friday had stated that he had Enforcement Directorate documents to prove his charges against Siddaramaiah.

Party working president Dinesh Gundu Rao said Yeddyurappa has been making baseless accusations and misl­eading people out of desperation.
