CM, BSY fling corruption charges against each other

Warming up for the 2018 Assembly elections, BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah traded corruption charges.

Yeddyurappa on Monday said he will quit politics if he fails to send Siddaramaiah and his family members to jail for corruption after coming to power, while Siddaramaiah hit back terming him the most corruption politician.

Addressing BJP workers at a protest dharna against corruption in the state government, the BJP leader said he will order an enquiry into corruption charges within 48 hours after becoming the chief minister.

Yeddyurappa had recently charged Siddaramaiah with having paid Rs 1,000 crore to the Congress high command. He had also accused the chief minister of taking a Rs 150-crore kickback for sanctioning the steel flyover project in Bengaluru.

Siddaramaiah said Yeddyurappa is facing 20 cases. It is ironical that the person who went to jail is speaking against corruption. Charges made by the BJP leader are baseless. In reality, a CD released by the Congress recently has exposed the BJP leaders, he added.
He said the state Congress will also protest against corrupt BJP leaders. The state Congress will chalk out a plan in this regard, he added.
