Yeddyurappa hints at dropping another 'bombshell' about CM

Yeddyurappa hints  at dropping another 'bombshell' about CM

Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa said on Saturday that he would make another revelation involving chief minister in Bengaluru on Sunday.

Addressing a massive audience in Gundlupet on Saturday, Yeddyurappa reiterated that Siddaramaiah has given Rs 1,000 crore to the Congress high command to save his position. “Senior Congress leaders themselves gave me this information over phone,” he said. 

“Siddaramaiah has also made a mention in his diary about the payment to the high command. The Gundlupet and Nanjangud bypolls are going to be a major challenge for Siddaramaiah. The Congress, which claims to be a national party, does not even have a candidate to contest in Nanjangud,” he said.

Speaking at another programme in Chamarajanagar, Yeddyurappa said, social reformer Basavanna, who was the prime minister of Kalyana state, assumed that the king’s treasury was the people’s property. Nowadays, the politicians are misusing public funds as if they are their personal property, so corruption has become rampant. Yeddyurappa was in Nanjangud (Mysuru district) and Gundlupet (Chamarajanagar district) in the wake of the byelections, necessitated due to the resignation of V S­rinivas Prasad in Nanjangud and in Gundlupet due to the death of minister H S Mahadeva Prasad.

Siddaramaiah is scheduled to visit the two places on Sunday. As the visit of Yeddyurappa evoked good response on Saturday, Congress party organisers have to work hard to make the visit of Siddaramaiah on Sunday a success. The chief minister is scheduled to participate in the ‘Mahasmarane’ programme in memory of Mahadeva Prasad at the late minister’s native Halahalli, in Gundlupet taluk. Later he will take part in a couple of events in Nanjangud taluk.
