BANGALORE: A day after former chief minister and KarnatakaJanata Party (KJP) supremo B S Yeddyurappa demanded an apology from BJP chief Rajnath, the BJP on Wednesday has posed ten questions to the Lingayat strongman to answer.
On Tuesday, Yeddyurappa remarked that Singh instead of claiming that he was helpless while unseating him (Yeddyurappa), should seek an apology for acting in haste. He further said that neither Singh nor the BJP leaders had studied the Lokayukta report on illegal mining, which indicted Yeddyurappa resulting in BJP asking him to step down as chief minister in July 2011.
On Monday, V Dhananjau Kumar, KJP campaign committee chairman had accused BJP partriarch LK Advani’s children of taking ”suitcases” from the chief ministers of the BJP ruled states including former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa. In a blistering attack on the senior BJP leader, Kumar, who was also a minister in AB Vajpayee government said, “I have enough proof to prove my allegations. Let BJP leaders answer to my charges, I will release the evidence at appropriate time.”
Ten posed by the BJP:
*After Lokayukta indicted you in illegal mining report, which court has given you clean chit? In case of clean chit why have you not released it to media?
*M P Renukacharya led dissidence twice against you by shepherding MLAS to Hyderabad and Chennai. How will this person become your well-wisher? What justice is this to blame the people who slogged to save your government?
*When a private complaint was lodged, you held H D Kumaraswamy responsible for it and swore to wipe out JD(S) from the state? What happened to it now?
*You are trying to gain cheap publicity by repeatedly stating that BJP has back stabbed. You have several times said Kumaraswamy back stabbed you. What happened to that statement?
*When governor had recommended President’s rule on Karnataka, Do you remember L K Advani led the delegation to the President in a protest against the decision? How can you make cheap comments against a person who thoroughly backed you?
*Why did you come back half way from Tumkur to form the government with support from JD(S) in 2007?
*Is it false that you said good bye to the party in 2005 to join a Congress-JD(S) coalition cabinet?
*You did not participate in the motion on V S Acharya in legislative assembly, instead you taken MLAs to a holiday resort. Why did you show disrespect to Acharya, who was like your backbone?
*Why are using cheap politician like V Dhananjay Kumar?
