Sharanagouda, son of JD(S) Gurmitkal MLA Naganagouda Kandakur, spoke at the press conference and accused BJP of trying to lure his father.

"I got a call at around 11.30 pm saying that B S Yeddyurappa wants to speak to me. As I didn't receive the call, I got a call for the third time from a different number. I was asked to travel from Yadgir to Devadurga to meet Yeddyurappa. I immediately called 'Anna' (Kumaraswamy)," he said. 

"I reached Devadurga circuit house late in the night. Hassan MLA Preetham Gowda and Devadurga MLA Shivanagouda Naik were there. I was asked to leave for Mumbai immediately, where B Y Vijayendra (Yeddyurappa's son) is there. I was told that the payment will be made there. I said that I will consult with my father and get back to him."


"Yeddyurappa told me that he had booked the Legislative Assembly Speaker himself by paying him Rs 50 crore. Sharangouda says he was offered by Yeddyurappa a plum ministerial portfolio if he convinces his father to jump ship to BJP," he added. 

"We have even booked Speaker by paying him Rs 50 crore. Do not worry. BJP National President Amit Shah has even booked Supreme Court judges" Yeddyurappa is said to have stated.
