The Congress is trying to destabilise the BJP government in Karnataka through the state's Governor who openly admitted that he is proud to be a Congressman, senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu charged on Sunday.
"Congress is unable to digest that it has been defeated in Karnataka. They are trying to defame and destabilise the BJP government headed by Yeddyurappa by using the Governor, who has openly admitted that he is proud to be Congressman," he told reporters in Hyderabad.
Naidu also distributed photo copies of the media reports on the statement of Governor H R Bhardwaj.
Asking why the Congress is not ready to accept a probe into allegations of illegal mining against the Reddy brothers by Lok Ayukta or a House committee of legislators, Naidu alleged that the Congress is insisting on a CBI inquiry because they can manipulate the premier investigation agency as per their political convenience.
"The chief minister has categorically said the ministers will have to go if the allegations are proved. He is ready for probe by the Lok Ayukta or House committee. Still, Congress wants investigation only by CBI because it has become Congress Bureau of Investigation. Are we so innocent to agree to this," he said.
