Cong MLC seeks police action against BSY, Ananth

 The government chief whip in the Legislative Council Ivan D'Souza on Friday approached the Malleswaram police seeking action against BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa and Union Minister Ananth Kumar.

D’Souza, a Congress MLC, cited a CD in which Yeddyurappa and Kumar, at a BJP function on February 12, are purportedly discussing payments made to their party leadership in Delhi.

He alleged that the two leaders had planned to destabilise the Congress party which was evident from the conversation in the CD released by the Congress party.

However, the police are yet to register a case based on the complaint as they are seeking a legal opinion. “We have received the complaint from Ivan D’ Souza which has been forwarded to the legal cell for opinion. The police will take action based on the legal opinion,” Venkatachalaiah, Malle­swaram police inspector, said.
