CPI-M seeks Yeddyurappa's resignation

In a statement at the end of the three-day meeting of its central committee, the CPI-M said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Karnataka had "set a new record in cronyism and loot of public resources".

"This government, which has the mining mafia as part of it, has become the hotbed for all forms of corruption. The chief minister himself has been favouring his sons and relatives. His defence is that previous chief ministers have done so too. There is no other way but for Yeddyurappa to resign as chief minister," the party said.

It said the BJP government was no different from the Congress "when it comes to embracing the nexus of big business and indulging in cronyism".
