New Delhi: Congress on Saturday said it was
ironical that former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyuruppa
is fighting for bail in a corruption case at a time when the
BJP is undertaking an anti-corruption yatra across the
"Perhaps it would have been far more appropriate if the
anti-corruption yatra would have been first undertaken in
Karnataka, Uttarakhand, and Punjab where BJP ministers and
functionary have been indicted on charges of corruption,"
party spokesman Manish Tewari said here.
He said it was "ironical" that Yeddyurappa is seeking
bail in a corruption case at a time when the BJP is
undertaking the yatra. BJP leader LK Advani is on a 38-day
yatra across the country to take on the UPA government on the
issue of corruption.
A Lokayukta Court has rejected the bail plea of
Yeddyurappa and issued arrest warrant against him in
connection with cases regarding alleged irregularities in
denotification of government lands.
