Tumakuru : BJP State President B S Yeddyurappa has decided to file a defamation case against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah allegedly for his persistent statements claiming to put him behind bars.
Speaking to reporters after visiting Siddaganga Math on Tuesday, BSY said that he has already consulted legal experts in connection to the same and that he was sure of filing the defamation case.
“The CM is unnecessarily making baseless allegations on me. To hide his own failures, he has now raked up the issue of power purchase and has dragged MP Shobha Karandalaje and me into the case,” he said challenging that in days to come he will expose several scams involving K J George and the CM.
Meanwhile, launching a scathing attack on Chief Minister Siddramaiah for his statement that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scared of him, B S Yeddyurappa has said that the CM has only manifested his foolishness by making such a trivial statement.
Driving the contrast between the PM and the CM in connection to both of their recent visit to Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara temple, BSY said that while the PM remained on a fast as he was entering a temple of great sanctity, the CM went about proclaiming that he did not just eat fish but also relish chicken before entering the temple. “The CM’s announcements have only hurt the emotions of lakhs of devotees of the temple,” he said adding that the CM must seek apologies of the devotees of the temple.
