Siddaramaiah locks horns with Yeddyurappa

Bengaluru — Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today taunted the State BJP President BS Yeddyurappa, saying the latter must first think of measures to avoid going to jail. He claimed that BJP president Amit Shah had bashed the former chief minister and team for the adverse situation prevailing in the State. Yeddyurappa’s public outbursts, said Siddaramaiah, suggests the BJP leader had become desperate.

It may be recalled here that the BJP began a State-wide campaign against Siddaramaiah-led Congress government since yesterday. The opposition in Karnataka has been demanding the ouster of DK Shivakumar and Ramesh Jharkiholi, members of the Siddaramiah Cabinet.

Addressing a protest rally yesterday, BS Yeddyurappa had also declared that he would be packing the present CM and his corrupt ministers off to jail soon after BJP comes back to power in the State.

Siddaramiah has said that he would be expanding his Cabinet soon. The chief minister clarified that no decision had been taken yet on the next home minister.

BSY seeks time to appear before ACB

Yeddyurappa has sought time to appear before the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). He was served a summons to appear before the ACB today in connection with the denotification case during his tenure.

An FIR had been lodged against the BJP leader. Instead of him, 2 lawyers turned up and pleaded for time for their client to appear before the bureau.

Reportedly, the BJP leader has resolved to move to the State High Court for a stay on the proceedings of the ACB.
