Mysuru, March 6:- “Siddaramaiah is a corrupt Chief Minister. Let him contest the Assemly election from Chamundeshwari Constituency in Mysuru and win it if he can,” challenged former chief minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president B S Yeddyurappa.
He was speaking to media persons in the city on Tuesday.
“The Congress has now welcomed Ashok Kheny, whom former prime minister H D Deve Gowda had alleged of grabbing thousands of acres of land. Now the Congress has made sure that they would welcome any corrupt politicians to their party. Congress has lost public faith by enrolling corrupt politicians to the party. Siddaramaiah will be the last Congress chief minister of Karnataka. Let the Congress bring Rahul Gandhi to Mysuru and Chamarajanagar districts. Wherever he goes, Congress will lose the polls,” he added.
Responding to the Chief Minister’s invite for an open debate, Yeddyurappa said that Siddaramaiah has no moral rights to invite him for an open debate.
When asked about Kannada actor Upendra joining the BJP, he said that he has no information about it.
BJP leader H V Rajeev, former chairman of Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) K R Mohan Kumar and others were present. -(KS, NGB)
