Will fight Yeddyurappa issue legally: BJP
BJP said the party will "legally" fight the cases involving Yeddyurappa,but maintained that it will stick to "zero tolerance against corruption".
New Delhi: BJP on Saturday said the party will
"legally" fight the cases involving former chief minister B S
Yeddyurappa, whose bail plea was rejected by a Lokayukta court
in Karnataka, but maintained that it will stick to "zero
tolerance against corruption".
The main opposition party also lashed out at Congress for
its remarks on the issue, saying the latter had no moral right
to comment on corruption as it itself was "neck-deep" into it.
"We will certainly fight the issue legally, but BJP will
adopt a zero tolerance towards corruption," said party
spokesman J P Nadda.
On extending the party`s support to Yeddyurappa, Nadda
said, "Legally we will be there, but at the same time, the
party would have zero tolerance towards corruption."
Hitting out at Congress on corruption issue, the BJP
leader said it had failed to take action against its leaders
involved in many scams.
