Belagavi: Rubbishing charges that two FIRs were registered against state BJP president B.S. Yeddyurappa by the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) in an act of political vendetta, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Friday the officers of ACB would act against the former chief minister as per the law.

He told the media at Almatti dam, near Vijayapura, that FIRs were registered against Mr Yeddyurappa only after a citizen lodged a complaint against him. Therefore, it was unfair on the part of leaders of BJP to allege that the ACB had registered FIRs under pressure from him Mr Siddaramaiah added. 

 

He hit back at BJP leaders saying if registration of FIRs by the ACB were a case of political vendetta,  why were they silent on Income Tax raids on energy minister D K Shivakumar earlier this month."What did they (BJP-led NDA government in New Delhi) do to D K Shivakumar recently? The law is common for everyone and BSY will have to face it,'' he added. 

Commenting on state JD (S) president H.D. Kumaraswamy's statement that his party would play a key role post elections to the Assembly next year, the Chief Minister asked "what do you (HDK) mean by a key role'' adding that both Mr Kumaraswamy and Mr Yeddyurappa were  merely day dreaming. Their parties (BJP and JD-S) will never come to power. Let them do any kind of acrobats. It is impossible for them,'' he added.

 

Earlier, the CM said that  he had completed discussions on the impending expansion of his cabinet with party vice president Rahul Gandhi. 

He, however, reiterated that the new ministers would be sworn in only after securing the green signal from central leaders of the Congress.
