Hubli: The Congress in Karnataka on Sunday demanded that the ruling BJP immediately convene a legislature session to debate the land allotment scams, failing which the party would take to the streets.

The people of the state ought to be informed on all the scams and the money "netted" by the BJP government, Opposition Congress leader Siddaramaiah told reporters here.

Dubbing all BJP ministers as "corrupt", he said the chief minister was the "captain" of corruption in the state.

He alleged that Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa was involved in land scams through denotification of lands. His ministers were also involved in land grabbing, he charged.

Yeddyurappa, he alleged, was misleading people by stating that the state`s financial position was very strong.

But why was the Rs 8000 crore meant for various departments still not released," he asked.
