The Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana used money and muscle power against the BJP in Karnataka, the party alleged today.
Hyderabad | 20th May 2018
BJP national executive member Ramesh Naidu today took serious exception to the comment of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu that B S Yeddyurappa lost power as the Telugu people living in Karnataka did not vote for the BJP.
Speaking to the media at the party office in Vijayawada on Sunday, the BJP leader said that if the comment of Chandrababu Naidu was true, then the BJP candidates would not have been able to win elections in the Telugu-dominated areas like Kanakgiri and Padmanabhnagar constituencies.
The BJP got the most seats as the people had immense faith in Narendra Modi and due to the rampant corruption in the Siddaramaiah government, he claimed.
Ramesh Naidu also said that Yeddyurappa resigned from the Chief Minister post in conformity with principles and democratic values - it would not have been a big thing to gather the support of seven MLAs to prove a majority in the Assembly given that the BJP was in power at the Centre, he claimed.
He also said that the Chief Ministers of the two Telugu states had used money and muscle power to try and defeat the BJP in Karnataka. He would disclose evidence to substantiate this charge soon, he said.
