JDS-Cong Govt is functioning as a Commission Agent: Yeddyurappa

Agency News

Bengaluru, Sept 19: Opposition Leader in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly Mr B S Yeddyurappa, who is also State BJP President, made a scathing attack on the functioning of the JDS-Congress Coalition government headed by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and termed it as a 'Commission Agent' and transfers were undertaken by taking commission.

"No file moves without giving bribe. The Ministers are collecting 8 per cent to 10 per cent to pass the Bills", he alleged.

Yeddyurappa was speaking at a meeting in Palace Ground in which his party's all the 104 MLAs, MLCs and senior leaders participated here on Wednesday. Underlining that even Deputy Chief Minister Dr G Parameshwara was shocked to see that Transfers were effected at random and without his consent.

"Parameshwara has became a mute spectator as father (former Prime Minister H D Devegowda) and Son ( Kumaraswamy) are not allowing him (Dr Parameshwara) to take decision independently whether on transfer in Home portfolio which he is holding or on any other matter," he added.

"The Coalition government is run by Father and Son and nobody, especially Congress Ministers, have any say whether on posting of an honest officer or in any other matter," Mr Yeddyurappa added.

The former Chief Minister alleged that Kumaraswamy is stooping to low level politics by making baseless allegation to the effect that BJP is indulging in 'Operation Kamal' to lure Legislators of Coalition Government and by stating that he was well aware about 'King pins' utilised to lure the Legislators of the Coalition government.

Yeddyurappa alleged that it was Kumaraswamy who tried to lure Malikaya Guttedar in Kalaburagi. Guttedar joined BJP before May 12 election to the Legislative Assembly.

In the meeting the issues including party's need to gear up for the Lok Sabha elections due next year, among other issues were discussed. (UNI)
