BJP's BS Yeddyurappa Caught On Camera Giving Cash in Karnataka

A video footage shows that BJP's boss in Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa handing over money to a family in Chamrajnagar district which is 150 km from Bangalore.

According to the video that Mr Yeddyurappa is seen handing over a bundle of Rs. 2,000 notes to a woman at his feet. It has reached the Election Commission too that is expected to examine the two videos that show politicians distributing money to voters ahead of the by-elections.

But few local BJP leaders told that, the money was compensation given to the family as the breadwinner of the family had committed suicide due to the agrarian crisis. But giving money to voters is an offence under the model code of conduct that has been in force.

But congress said that BS Yeddyurappa had given 50 notes of Rs. 2,000 to the woman, Rs. 1 lakh in all.

Two assembly seats Gundlupet which comes under Chamrajnagar district and Nanjangud will go to polls.
