CBI politicised by Congress: Venkaiah Naidu

Addressing a press conference in Bangalore, Naidu charged that the Congress was practicing “negative politics” and had politicised the institution of the Governor in Karnataka and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Gujarat. The Congress is losing all its stonghold states and the by-polls results has shown that the trend is continuing, he added.

He noted that BJP won by about 20,000 votes in Kathlal (Gujarat) Assembly seat, which had been held by Congress since the state’s formation in 1960. In Karnataka, the party had won only two seats of the 16 that have gone to polls since May 2008.

Naidu criticised Governor H R Bhardwaj for “dabbling in politics” and taunted him to become Congress spokesman if he was so interested.

On the Ayodhya issue, he said, “People of the country want a grand Ram temple at the birthplace of Ram. But  the issue is in the court. The court is giving its final verdict (on September 24)”. Naidu said the party would give its reaction only after the verdict was out.
