Yeddyurappa goes counter-offensive against the Opposition

Bangalore: Yeddyurappa said he told the party leaders "everything, about the loot of the state during the tenure of (JD(S) leaders) H D Deve Gowda and H D Kumaraswamy and how they distributed land to their relatives.“

On the allegations of irregularities against him, he has decided to go on a counter-offensive against the Opposition and challenged them to “come out openly" with proof of any wrongdoing he had committed.

Claiming that he had done no wrong, the Chief Minister said he had ordered a judicial enquiry on the allegations against him as well as other cases that go as back as 1995.

Queried what message he was carrying from the BJP leadership, the Chief Minister said they had advised him to perform well in the state, where he led the party to power for the first time in a South Indian state.

“They advised me that there must be a very good governance in future and (the party’s future) in entire south and neighbouring states depends upon (the peformance) in Karnataka," he said.
