BJP on Saturday demanded that the Karnataka government drop Textiles and Ports Minister Baburao Chinchansur from the ministry.

The BJP alleged that Chinchansur had demanded a bribe of Rs 2 crore from a contractor hired for developing backwaters in Kundapur.

"I urge the government to drop Minister Chinchansur for allegedly demanding Rs 2 crore bribe from a contractor who was awarded work for developing backwaters in Kundapur, a coastal town in Karnataka," State BJP Opposition Leader Jagadish Shettar told reporters here.

Shettar played a tape before the media purportedly containing the voice of Chinchansur seeking bribe.

He also demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter.
