Karnataka ‘audiogate’: BS Yeddyurappa’s opposition to SIT probe at odds with BJP’s denial of bribery charges
On Saturday, Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy released an audio clip of BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa and claimed that the former chief minister of the state was trying to lure lawmakers to topple the Congress-JD(S) government.
Kumaraswamy is likely to appoint a retired high court judge to supervise the SIT. "The probe will be conducted under the judge's guidance. The report will also be submitted to the judge who, in turn, will submit it to the House in the next 15 days," a report quoted CMO sources.
