I would like to place one question to the honorable prime minister -- recently, at his party meeting, he (Modi) spoke to make the country corruption-free and urged the voters to back him. "But what is going in Karnataka?From where is the money coming that they (BJP) are providing to Congress MLAs to support them (BJP)? asked Kumaraswamy.
