Mangaluru, Nov 12, 2017: State BJP President B S Yeddyurappa has claimed that there were 30 cases against Siddaramaiah and that the ACB has not filed an FIR in even one case. The truth will stand exposed if all the cases are handed over to the CBI, he said.
Speaking to reporters here Yeddyurappa also alleged that the district was facing a sand shortage as the Congress leaders were part of the sand mafia. "The drugs menace is also rampant. Though the government ought to control the mafia, it seems as if the mafia itself was controlling the government," said Yeddyurappa.
He demanded that AICC General Secretary K C Venugopal be dropped from his post of in-charge of Congress in Karnataka as he is facing rape charges.
Alleging that the State was hit hard due to the government which was hit by a number of scams, Yeddyurappa said the ACB has only been giving clean chit to the accused. There was also a breakdown of law and order situation in the state, Yeddyurappa said and dubbed the Chief Minister as irresponsible.
He also claimed that the Parivartana Yatra was successful in Dakshina Kannada district.
MPs Nalin Kumar Kateel, Shobha Karandlaje and several party leaders were present.
