A day after B S Yeddyurappa was named BJP’s Karnataka unit chief, Congress Saturday said appointment of “tainted” leaders has “exposed” BJP’s promise of probity.
“You have a PM who keeps tom-tomming about probity and then you see… allegedly the most tainted people being appointed BJP state presidents,” party spokesman Manish Tewari said. “Is it not a fact that when Yeddyurappa was CM, Lokayukta found him guilty? Is it not a fact that he had to resign?,” he asked.
