The Opposition is now questioning the Kumaraswamy led- coalition for its inaction against the alliance partner Congress.
Siddaramaiah on Saturday produced copies of non-reconciled receipts before the media which suggest that for the period 2016-17 an amount of Rs 30,036 or 19% of the total expenditure is yet to be reconciled. The former chief minister also pointed out that huge decline in the number of cases of theft and misappropriation, which were at 183 during 2008-09 and had come down to 25 in 2016-17.
"BJP is deliberately making false statements about the CAG report. Yeddyurappa has become desperate as he wants to become CM again but he is ageing, so they are trying to mislead the people," Siddaramaiah said.
He took to Twitter and trained the guns at the central government.
Allegations by @BJP4Karnataka about the corruption, during my stint as CM, are baseless. They are just misleading people to deviate from the issues of inefficiencies of @narendramodi govt. pic.twitter.com/hkC78LjNYW— Siddaramaiah (@siddaramaiah) December 8, 2018
BJP MLA CT Ravi responded to Siddaramaiah's tweet saying that if he has nothing to hide he shouldn't shy away from an investigation.
Why is former CM @siddaramaiah shying away from an investigation into the 35,000 crore Funds that remain unaccounted during his Corrupt durbar.— C T Ravi 🇮🇳 (@CTRavi_BJP) December 8, 2018
Unlike Siddaramaiah who cleverly slept through his term, PM @narendramodi is working round the clock for #TransformingIndia. https://t.co/jBKdXkJYe1
Many are questioning the timing of the BJP for bringing out the discrepancies. "The CAG report was in public domain for so long. The BJP wants to create a stir before the Belagavi session and not allow a smooth functioning of the assembly", a source from the congress said.
