BJP delegation meets Governor, demands sacking of State Government

August 21, 2017

Bengaluru: Accusing the Siddharamaiah Government of misusing the ACB (Anti Corruption Bureau) to target Opposition leaders, with the ACB registering two FIRs against State BJP Chief B.S. Yeddyurappa in connection with alleged de-notification of land for Shivarama Karanth Layout in Bengaluru, a BJP delegation met Governor Vajubhai R. Vala at Rajbhavan here this morning to demand sacking of the Siddharamaiah Government.

Alleging that the Siddharamaiah Government was behind the registration of false cases against Yeddyurappa, the BJP delegation is all set to apprise the Governor on the allegation made by senior KAS Officer Basavarajendra that he was being pressured by the ACB to testify against Yeddyurappa in the alleged illegal de-notification case.

Earlier, the BJP leaders staged a stir in front of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar statue at Vidhana Soudha and went in a procession to Raj Bhavan. Union Minister Ananth Kumar, Opposition Leader Jagadish Shettar, Senior leaders K.S. Eshwarappa and R. Ashok, MP P.C. Mohan and other leaders were part of the delegation.

It may be mentioned here that BJP had staged Statewide protests yesterday condemning the ‘false cases’ registered against the party State Chief.

The leaders also accused CM Siddharamaiah of witch-hunting Opposition leaders.

Meanwhile, CM Siddharamaiah, reacting to the BJP’s charge on Sunday, said that he was not the one to carry out a witch-hunt. The ACB had registered a case based on a complaint by one  D. Aiyappa and he had nothing to do with it.

Maintaining that the Government will not intervene in the ACB probe, Siddharamaiah dismissed allegations that he was practising politics of hatred by falsely implicating Opposition leaders.
