Stung, BJP hits back at Kumaraswamy with a video clip
BENGALURU: Stung by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s audio clip bombshell on Friday, the BJP launched a counter-offensive on Saturday. BJP state general secretary Aravind Limbavali alleged that “Kumaraswamy demanded Rs 25 crore from an MLC seat-aspirant and they were in possession of the video clip.’’ He said the details will be provided in the legislature on Monday when the House meets and a copy of the video clip will be given to Speaker Ramesh Kumar. “We will urge the Speaker to seek a response from Kumaraswamy,” he said.
N Ravi Kumar, party general secretary, too made a similar allegation stating that in 2014, Kumaraswamy sought Rs 25 crore from Viju Gowda, an MLC aspirant. The allegations come a day after Kumaraswamy released an audio tape allegedly containing the voice of state BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa trying to strike a deal to poach a JD(S) legislator.
