Mumbai: A meeting of BJP core committee
will be held this evening to discuss the allegations of
corruption against Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa,
party President Nitin Gadkari said here Thursday.

We will discuss the matter and verify it," Gadkari
told reporters at the state BJP headquarters here.

Earlier today, Yeddyurappa, mired in charges of
corruption and nepotism, dismissed reports that Gadkari and
RSS were "unhappy" with him.

"The JD-S, under the leadership of Congress in Delhi, repeatedly tried to destabilise the BJP-led Karnataka government," Gadkari alleged.

Yeddyurappa has come under attack from the Opposition
that is seeking his ouster over alleged land scams and has
questioned the allotment of land to a firm, in which his two
sons are partners.

Meanwhile, Gadkari took on Congress and demanded a probe
into the Commonwealth Games and Raja`s spectrum scams.
On allegations that he owned a flat in the controversial
Adarsh housing society, Gadkari asserted, "I am not directly
or indirectly connected with it. Let an enquiry take place."
