Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today lashed out at Union Home Minister P Chidambaram for making "baseless" allegations against him over cancellation of a law and order review meeting fixed in Bangalore for Saturday.

"I am not responsible for cancellation of the meeting. It is Chidambaram, who cancelled it," Yeddyurappa said.

He was irked over the Home Minister's statement that held him responsible for cancelling the meeting expressing inability to attend it.

"Chidambaram postponed the meeting on at least three occasions earlier", Yeddyurappa told PTI.

"I need not be present at that meeting. I had authorised Home Minister VS Acharya to attend it," Yeddyurappa said.

Taking a dig at Chidambaram, Yeddyurappa sarcastically said "if he had concerns for Karnataka, he would have sanctioned the NSG commando unit and then come to Bangalore".
