BENGALURU: The Congress has come out strongly against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP leadership after a report in a news magazine 'The Caravan' alleged BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa had bribed senior party leaders to become chief minister after the last assembly election. AICC General Secretary Randeep Surjewala has raised serious allegations against BJP leadership by raising reports of the magazine.
The Caravan with evidence reported that Yeddyurappa had given 1800 crore to become CM and he has mentioned it in his diary as well.
"Prima facie, this is a case of investigating all BJP leaders, right from the PM and downwards. It is a fit case to be investigated by the newly appointed Lokpal," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said in a press conference.
"The ball is in the PM's court. He must decide whether Chowkidar chor hai ya chowkidar jaanch ke liye taiyaar hai (or the chowkidar is ready for an investigation)," Mr Surjewala added.
