Bengaluru: CM releases audio on Operation Lotus – complaint filed against Yeddyurappa

Operation Lotus - Congress, JD(S) seem to have edged out Yeddyurappa

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Feb 8: While Congress leaders from the state, particularly Siddaramaiah, and JD(S) leaders led by chief minister, H D Kumaraswamy, have been shouting from the rooftops that BJP is trying to buy disgruntled MLAs, BJP leaders led by Yeddyurappa have been claiming that they have not been involved with any horsetrading and that the ruling coalition is vary of its disgruntled legislators changing allegiance on their own. 

B S Yeddyurappa

Although he faces the compulsion of giving final touches to the state budget, chief minister, Kumaraswamy, in a sudden press conference, released an audio said to contain conversation involving Yeddyurappa in which he had tried to persuade a JD(S) MLA to join his party. He claimed that Yeddyurappa had visited Devadurga in the guise of visiting a temple there at 1.30 pm, and that he got information from a party loyalist that Yeddyurappa was trying to sabotage the state government through Operation Lotus. He claimed that the audio clip he had released contains Yeddyuurappa in conversation with the son of Naganagouda Kandkal, JD(S) MLA of Gurumatkal constituency. He accused Yeddyurappa of of trying to get 20 MLAs to resign from their posts in tune with his old habit of executing Operation Lotus. He also accused BJP national president, Amit Shah, of engineering these defections.

Kumaraswmay stated that Yeddyurppa made an offer of Rs 25 crore to Naganagouda to leave JD(S). He said that BJP leaders now have been approaching close ones of the legislators instead of directly speaking with the MLAs.

Sharanagouda Patil claimed that Yeddyurpapa called him on Wednesday night, making an offer, and inviting him to come to Devadurga inspection bungalow. "When I went there, MLA, Shivanagouda Nayak and Hassan MLA, Preetham Gowda, were present. During the discussions, an offer of Rs 25 crore was made. They also offered to make my father a minster in case election is held. They also said that my father would not be disqualified as they had booked assembly speaker, Ramesh Kumar, by paying Rs 25 crore. I was also told by them that Amit Shah and Modi have booked Supreme Court judges," he said.

In retaliation, Yeddurappa addressed a press meet in which he termed the audio as fake. He announced that he would quit politics if the allegations levelled against him by the chief minster are proved to be true.

    All the money looted by his crony capitalist 'Chota Modi aka Nirva Modi' and 'Mehul Bhai' from public sector banks worth $2 Billion and to save Anil Ambani in 'Rafale Jet' scam worth Rs 40,000 crores is now making turn-around to buy politicians of winning parties in Karnataka.

    When Kerala and Kodagu in Karnataka under floods, the BJP's central government has no money for the rehabilitation of the flood victims. The BJP has no money to save the farmers from suiciding instead of asking them to buy insurance depositing Rs100 every month in another scam to save the government appointing crony insurers.
    After the peak of the IT boom during former CM S.M. Krishna, more professional graduates are asked to take up 'Pakoda' business. At the same time, BJP is offering 50-70 crores for each MLA's to switch the side with ministerial promise.
    If 'Chowkidar' is honest, how does this corruption in the heart democracy can't be stopped?

    Kamal ka Phool Hamari bhool. BJP hatao desh bachao..
    Jai Karnataka
    Jai Hind

    BSY's desperate attempts to topple the coalition Govt and many attempts to form his own speaks everything.
    Everybody remembers, Governor had called BSY first to form the Govt, he had quickly taken the stake and failed to prove floor test!

    Mr. Modi and his camp in parliament talks of governance in 55 months compared to Congress Party's ruling of 55 years. The whole nation knows from where these crores are coming from and what both Amith Shah and Narendra Modi are doing from last 55 months. If they are not kicked out by 2019, Indian democratic values will go to dogs and the world will laugh at Indians as Churchill predicted it long back.
