Bangalore: JDS leader H D Kumaraswamy on Tuesday said he would be releasing "documents" on the alleged
irregularities involving Karnataka Chief Minister BS
Yeddyurappa tomorrow in New Delhi.
"There are no changes in my plans of going to Dharmasthala
to swear by my allegations that Yeddyurappa tried to strike a
compromise with me and also on releasing fresh set of
documents against the Chief Minister tomorrow", he told
Kumaraswamy is expected to address a press conference
in the national capital tomorrow afternoon, sources close to
him said here.
He said by releasing the documents, he wanted to prove to
the people that how much respect Yeddyurappa had maintained to
God "after he took a oath at the Nanjundeshwara temple in
Nanjangud (near Mysore) a few months ago that he would not do
any wrong succumbing to pressures and also not indulge in acts
of nepotism and favouritism".
Kumaraswamy reiterated that it was not his own resolve
to testify on his allegation against Yeddyurappa but was
forced after the Chief Minister threw the challenge through a
open letter published by newspapers in the state.
"Had I not agreed to accept the challenge by Yeddyurappa,
people would have suspected me", he said, apparently referring
to the plea by some seers to desist from his Dharmasthala
Kumaraswamy had said on June 18 that he accepted
Yeddyurappa`s challenge to testify before the Dharmasthala
presiding deity, Lord Manjunatheshwara, on the Chief
Minister`s "attempts to buy peace" with him.
