Advani’s yatra should start from Karnataka: Cong

Congress had a dig at the BJP`s probity plank saying Advani`s yatra against corruption beginning next week should start from party ruled-Karnataka.



New Delhi: Congress today had a dig at the
BJP`s probity plank saying L K Advani`s yatra against
corruption beginning next week should start from party
ruled-Karnataka instead of Bihar.

"It will be appropriate that instead of Bihar, the yatra
should start from Karnataka.....the fight should start from
Karnataka", party spokesman Rashid Alvi told reporters.

In sarcastic remarks, he said that BJP leaders like
Dilipsingh Judeo, Bangaru Lakshman, former Karnataka Chief
Minister B S Yeddyurappa and the controversial Reddy brothers
from Bellary should be associated with the yatra. All these
leaders have been charged with corruption.
The BJP rule in Karnataka has come under sharp attack
over the past few months on the issue of corruption with the
illegal mining scam and land scams creating controversies
galore.

In an obvious swipe at Advani`s prime Ministerial
ambition, Alvi said that the motive for which he was setting
out on the yatra would not be fulfilled.
The Congress criticism came on a day when the BJP
announced details of the 38-day yatra beginning on October 11
to create awareness about corruption but remained tight-lipped
about the expenditure the massive programme would entail.
