BS Yeddyurappa paid top BJP leaders crores, claims Congress; BJP denies


The Congress has sought an investigation by the Lokpal into a media report that alleged bribes of Rs 1800 crore were paid by former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa to the BJPs top leaders. Addressing the media during a press conference at party headquarters in New Delhi, Prima facie, this is a case of investigating all BJP leaders, right from the PM and downwards. It is a fit case to be investigated by the newly appointed Lokpal. The diary with B S Yeddyurappas signature on it was with the Income Tax Department since 2017. If that is the case why did Modi and the BJP not get it investigated, Surjewala said. The Congress idea of grand alliance against the BJP flopped after several regional parties expressed reservation over Rahuls leadership. Parties like TDP, Samajwadi Party, BSP and others are contesting against Congress in their respective states. The Lok Sabha polls will be held in seven phases between April 11 and May 19. The elections will be a litmus test for the Congress as it would face PM Narendra Modi whose popularity remains unmatched by any of the other rival leaders. Results will be declared on May 23.”,”headline”: “BS Yeddyurappa paid top BJP leaders crores, claims Congress; BJPdenies
