Hyderabad: Alleging BJP of adopting double standards over the issue of corruption, a senior Congress on Sunday said how could the main opposition party question Karnataka Governor`s decision to sanction prosecution of Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa.

"BJP national president Nitin Gadkari himself said the Chief Minister Yeddyurappa`s action of denotifying the land in favour of his son was immoral. The Governor has acted in accordance with his powers. How can BJP talk about ethics?" V Hanumantha Rao said.

Taking exception to the BJP alleging that Karnataka Governor HR Bharadwaj was a Congress`s agent, Rao said the Governor acted within his powers.

The BJP, which stalled the whole session of Parliament on the issue of corruption, was adopting double standard by supporting Yeddyurappa now, Rao said.

"UPA government has taken action against A Raja, Ashok Chavan and Suresh Kalmadi and also ordered probe. How can the BJP talk about corruption when its Chief Minister is facing allegations of corruption?"

As to Andhra Congress affairs, Rao congratulated Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy for saying that the family members of late YS Rajasekhara Reddy should be indebted to Congress for having encouraged him to grow as a tall leader.

"The people would decide whether Congress was right or Jagan," he said.
