Bribe for the tender scam: Karnataka BJP shifts venue of Amit Shah’s event

The ruling BJP in Karnataka has shifted the venue of Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s meeting following party MLA Madal Virupakshappa being named the prime accused in a bribe for the tender scam, party sources confirmed on Wednesday.

The program was fixed for Honnali town in the Davanagere district earlier. Virupakshappa represents the Channagiri constituency in the Davanagere district. Fearing embarrassment, the party has decided to hold the program on March 27 in Chitradurga city.

The party had organized a mega event for the beneficiaries of various programs launched by the BJP governments at the Centre and in the state at Honnali city. Channagiri is located close to Honnali.

Bharatiya Janata Party sources said that the party has taken the decision following the opposition launching attacks on the party and central leaders. The program was being held in the same district where the BJP MLA has been named as the prime accused by the Lokayukta police in the bribe case.

Sources said that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is also likely to attend the program and the party wants to make the maximum impact on the voters, and not give any room for criticism by the opposition parties.

The party is planning to bring 10 lakh people for the rally on that day. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and former CM B.S. Yediyurappa will also attend the event.

Madal Virupakshappa’s son Prashanth Madal, a government official, was caught red-handed by the Lokayukta police while accepting Rs 40 lakh cash as a bribe at his office in Bengaluru. The authorities have also recovered Rs 8 crore from the residence and offices of the BJP MLA.
