Bengaluru: As Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) BS Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the 23rd Chief Minister of Karnataka on Thursday morning, Janata Dal (Secular) leader, H D Kumaraswamy, lashed out at the BJP for misusing the institutions of the Central Government, stating that several Congress MLAs have found themselves in the crosshairs of the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Alleging that the BJP are conspiring to ‘purchase’ their MLAs, he said, “Our plan is to safeguard our MLAs. The BJP and their ministers are working to purchase MLAs, people should know about the attitude of Central Government. BJP does not have a majority, how has the Governor behaved? He has misused his office.”
