Karnataka minister complained to the Governer against CM Yediyurappa's interference

Yediyurappa government of Karnataka has been in constant controversy due to allegations one after another. Recently, the sex CD scandal in the state was in the news for several days. At the same time, only one of his ministers has opened a front against Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa. KS Eshwarappa, a minister and BJP leader in the Karnataka government, has rebelled against CM Yediyurappa.

Eshwarappa has made serious allegations against Chief Minister Yediyurappa, saying that CM interferes with the functioning of his department. The minister has also complained to the Governor and the BJP leadership about this. In a letter to Governor Vajubhai Vala, Eshwarappa accused Yediyurappa of direct interference in his ministry in violation of the Karnataka Trade Transactions Rules 1977. He says that the Chief Minister has allocated Rs 774 crore without permission from his department.

The minister said that the Chief Minister allocated Rs 65 crore from his department for one district in Bengaluru and during this time he ignored the rest of the districts. The minister said that it is sad that the CM deliberately ignored them and issued these orders. The minister said that if this continues then he might not be able to work as a minister in the upcoming days.

Minister Eshwarappa has also sent a copy of his letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and BJP chief JP Nadda. The opposition has besieged the Karnataka government regarding this. Karnataka Congress in-charge Randeep Surjewala said that what has always been said about the Yediyurappa government, now his own ministers are proving that point.

Surjewala tweeted, "This is an illegal government born through a stolen mandate, which is engaged in corruption. Runs in an authoritarian fashion to serve only one man. It should be shown the door."
