Karna CM has no moral right to support Hazare`s movement: Cong
Mysore: Hitting out at ruling BJP in Karnataka
for alleged corrupt acts, Congress on friday said neither
Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa nor the State BJP unit has any
moral right to support Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement,
when they themselves were "corrupt."
While the Chief Minister claims that there has been no
illegal mining during his tenure, the Supreme court appointed
Central Empowered Committee report clearly mentions about the
ongoing mining, AICC spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi he said.
Yeddyurappa and the BJP state unit had come out in
support of Hazare when the anti-corruption crusader went on an
indefinite fast on the Jan Lokpal bill issue.
Karnataka ranked first in graft in the country, Singhvi
alleged and demanded a CBI probe into the "mining scam" in the
state and that Yeddyurappa resign on moral grounds.
"Neither Yeddyurappa nor State BJP unit has any moral right
to support Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement, when they
themselves were corrupt," he said.
Singhvi, who is also Chairman, Legal and Human Rights
Department, was addressing the Convention of Southern State
Advocates and Human Rights? Delegates, organised jointly by
Legal and Human Rights? Department and Karnataka Pradesh
