New Delhi: Congress Monday ridiculed Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's claim that there was a conspiracy to eliminate him by taking recourse to "black magic" saying it exposed the BJP leader's "medieval and reactionary mindset".

"This is a living example of a medieval and reactionary mindset. The fundamental question is that whether this betrays only his mindset or also that of the party to which be belongs and which has made him the Chief Minister," party spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters here.

Be was reacting to Yeddyurappa's comment in Mysore that there was a conspiracy to eliminate him by taking recourse to "black magic" after efforts to use it to unseat him from power failed.

"Those who indulged in black magic to unseat me from power and failed are involved in it again... There is a conspiracy to eliminate me. I am not even sure whether I will return home after visiting Vidhana Soudha (state secretariat)," said Yeddyurappa, who has been facing unending troubles since becoming chief minister in 2008.

The BJP leader has been in controversy for some time over land allotment issues in the state involving his kin and a section of the party favours his exit from the Chief Minister's chair.

The Congress spokesperson said it needed consideration how such statements behove a Chief Minister.
