Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Tuesday sought to counter the UPA allegations of corruption during BJP rule in the southern state and demanded proof to substantiate the charges.
Yeddyurappa, in a letter to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, claimed that there was no shred of evidence against his government as against the proof available in the 2G Spectrum and other scams faced by the Centre.
"I would like to know whether there is any proof or evidence to prove these charges and if there is any, I request you to send the same to enable me to place the records straight," Yeddyurappa said in the letter made public here.
He claimed that the UPA, by refusing to accept a JPC probe into the 2G spectrum scam, has engineered the 'pandemonium in the parliament and the total wash out of the proceedings, for the first time in the history of Independent India'.
While trying to counter Opposition demand for a JPC probe into the 2G Spectrum scam, Sonia Gandhi had referred to corruption in Karnataka and BJPs reluctance to seek Yeddyurappa's resignation.
