Former Karnataka chief minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah on Wednesday challenged the BJP to come back clean on its alleged tries to bribe his party MLAs to destabilize the coalition government within the state. The Congress leaders are latched in a very war of attrition with the BJP ever since the ministry was recently enlarged and reshuffled, amid reports that the saffron party was connected with disgruntled MLAs who incomprehensible ministerial berths.
"I am not pampering in a blame game with the BJP in reference to tries to bribe the MLAs. there's a basis behind the statement. Is it not true that they (BJP) created a suggestion to bc Patil? once the time is ripe, I'll disclose some additional things," Siddaramaiah said in a tweet.
Two days ago, the leader of the Congress assembly Party had alleged that the BJP had created a contemporary attempt to topple the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition government by giving Rs 25 to 30 crore to the legislators. Rubbishing the charge, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president bs Yeddyurappa had asked Siddaramaiah to talk responsibly and provide proof to back his charge.
Karnataka deputy chief minister G Parameshwara too had on Tuesday suspect the BJP of creating a contemporary bid to topple the government, claiming that efforts were current to rearrange a gathering of his party's disgruntled MLAs with BJP president Amit Shah.
Parameshwara's charge had come back amid reports that aggrieved Congress MLA, Ramesh Jarkiholi, who was dropped from the ministry within the recent reshuffle, was camping in Delhi. Jarkiholi, who claims to own the support of a significant number of Congress MLAs, has remained uncommunicative since he was removed from the ministry.
