Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister and Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah on Thursday said the new government that will come after Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa’s exit will not change anything because “the BJP itself is a corrupt party”.
Speaking to reporters at Vidhana Soudha after chairing a meeting of the Congress’ legislators, he said that Yediyurappa gave a bad government in Karnataka. It was not a pro-development government. It was a government filled with corruption,” he said. “By removing Yediyurappa, I don’t think an honest chief minister will come. The BJP itself is a corrupt party. Their ministers are corrupt. So whoever comes, it will be a corrupt government,” he said.
He recalled that he had predicted Yediyurappa’s exit several months ago. “I’ve been saying for 6-7 months that Yediyurappa will be changed. I had credible information. Nobody believed me, but it has come true now,” he said, adding that this was the BJP’s internal affair.
