Bengaluru: Former chief minister, H.D. Kumaraswamy has reportedly decided to expose Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa and has requested his 'well-wishers' in the bureaucracy and those among civil contractors to share evidence with him in this regard.
After taking a 'vow' to expose Mr Yediyurappa within three months, Mr Kumaraswamy reportedly worked out a plan to embarrass the Chief Minister.
Accordingly, he has told his well wishers to keep a tab on Mr Yediyurappa's son and BJP leader B.Y. Vijayendra, said sources.
“Whenever Mr Vijayendra holds a meeting, these contractors/ officials have to record his voice or any directions given to them. If possible, try to record the video footage through mobile camera,” he reportedly told his friends.
Between 2008-2010 when the BJP was in power, the denotification scam and other issues were successfully exposed by Mr Kumaraswamy with records.
Till date, it is suspected that a senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader who fell out with Mr Yediyurappa, handed over these documents to Mr Kumaraswamy who used it to discredit Mr Yediyurappa and ensure his removal from the Chief Minister’s post.
This could be the reason why Mr Yediyurappa is treading very cautiously this time with sources close to him saying that he consults experts and senior officials before taking any decision.
Mr Kumaraswamy has already made an allegation that Mr Vijayendra is holding meetings with contractors and officials who want transfers.
He, however, did not share any evidence to support the allegation.
