The BJP in Karnataka is all set to intensify its political campaign against the Congress government.

Speaking to reporters at Belagavi on Friday, BJP state President BS Yeddyurappa said that he would expose the “corruption Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and his family are involved in".

The veteran BJP leader said that he will release documents to prove his allegation within three days.

“There are some documents which are being translated to Kannada. Some documents are missing, which are being sourced. I will expose the level of corruption Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, his family and cabinet Ministers are mired in,” Yeddyurappa told the media.

Speaking to the media, Yeddyurappa said that the party would intensify its protest against the ruling government. “In two-three days, I will release a copy of the chargesheet which will be filed against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, his family members, four cabinet Ministers including MB Patil and his close associate Kempaiah,” BS Yeddyurappa said.

He said that the saffron party would also hold a protest at Belagavi on Saturday demanding the resignation of Siddaramaiah, Water Resource Minister MB Patil and several other leaders and associates of the Chief Minister.

“I have collected all the documents necessary to expose the corruption in the Congress government. This includes the discrepancies in the Home Department under Kempaiah, severe corruption in MB Patil’s Water Resource Department, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and several other governmental departments,” Yeddyurappa added.

“MB Patil is looting the government’s coffers in broad daylight. Patil had said that Rs 17,802 crore was set aside for increasing the height and capacity of the Almatti Dam. Why is he not talking about this project? It has not even begun. Where did all that money go?” Yeddyurappa questioned.

The BJP veteran had made similar allegations earlier in September. At the time, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had demanded that the BJP state President present proof of his allegations.

“I have nothing to hide, neither does my son. Let Yeddyurappa provide proof for his list of allegations first. I am ready to discuss this issue,” Siddaramaiah had told the media on September 13.
