Admitting that audio clip released by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy had his (Yeddyurappa's) voice, State BJP president B S Yeddyurappa charged that Kumaraswamy released only a part of the audio which he wanted to level allegations.

"Kumaraswamy himself sent Gurumitkal JD(S) MLA's son to the guest house where I was staying, at 12:30 am, and released only selected part of the recorded conversation. Kumaraswamy is doing such third grade and blackmailing politics," he said.

Yeddyurappa told media persons here on Sunday that what exactly happened during the MLA's son's visit would come to light in coming days.

I will retire for politics if it is proved that I stated that money was given to the Legislative Assembly speaker. I am ready for any probe, he said.

Kumaraswamy had earlier demanded Rs 25 crore to make a leader the MLC. We have that recording and we would give that the Speaker on Monday while raising the issue in the session, he said.

JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna has already said that nothing moves in the JD(S) without 'suitcase', he noted.

Inspecting the preparations for Prime Minister Narendra Modi rally, Yeddyurappa predicted that BJP would win at least 20 seats in Lok Sabha elections in the State.
