Congress demands Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa’s resignation for his alleged involvement with “Operation Kamala”!

Congress leader Rajeev Shukla on Thursday said that BJP should solicit the resignation of BS Yediyurappa and the governor should order an investigation.

Congress leader Rajeev Shukla on Thursday demanded that Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa resigned from the post or be sacked to ensure a fair investigation against him, reported news agency ANI.

The crucial demand comes after Yediyurappa was allegedly involved in a 2019 corruption case wherein he tried to lure a JD(S) MLA to the BJP by offering him money.

“A transparent probe can only take place if (Karnataka) CM BS Yediyurappa tenders his resignation or he’s sacked. BJP should solicit CM’s resignation & new govt should order a fair probe in ‘operation lotus’ or whatever it is called,” Congress leader Rajeev Shukla said on Thursday.

The High Court on Wednesday raised a green flag for the investigation in FIR filed against Yediyurappa Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa and his former media advisor MB Maramkal in connection with “Operation Kamala,” reported ANI.

Congress leader Rajeev Shukla asserted that the BJP only talks of morality and cleanliness in politics but does not act against its people accused of corruption, reported NDTV.

He further contended that the BJP should solicit the resignation of Mr Yediyurappa and the governor should order an investigation against the Karnataka CM.

Mr. Shukla also emphasized that the issue was “very serious” and a serious investigation should be conducted.

The NDTV report also suggests that Mr. Yediyurappa allegedly offered money to the son of JD(S) MLA Naganagouda Kandkur, Sharanagouda to lure the latter to the BJP to topple the state government.

Mr. Shukla detailed the alleged involvement of Mr. Yediyurappa’s scams and mentioned that no probe has been ordered despite the high court giving directions in this regard. “The government should immediately probe the matter. The chief minister should resign and a quick decision should be taken on this,” Congress’ Rajeev Shukla said on Thursday.
