A report alleged that the central BJP leaders, judges and advocates were paid more than Rs.1, 800 crore by Karnataka state Chief B.S.Yeddyurappa. The Congress sought an independent inquiry into the allegations.
Yeddyurappa said that the Congress had “planted the story in the media to gain mileage”. “Issues raised by Congress leaders are irrelevant and false. I’m discussing with the senior advocates to file a defamation case against the concerned person of the Congress Party”
He also twitted on his page regarding his official Media release statement regarding the issue.
