Bengaluru: In connection with the 40% of commissions allegations against the ruling BJP in the state, the Union Home Ministry has sought documents and other forms of proof from the president of the Karnataka State Contractors’ Association.
Association president Kempanna has submitted all the documents to the officer sent by the Union Home Ministry in Bengaluru on Tuesday, June 28. Kempanna had written to the Home Ministry about the corruption allegations against the BJP government in the state.
“The Union Home Ministry has sent an officer in this regard to discuss the issue. I have all the documents that were sought by the officer. I will meet and give all details in that regard,” Kempanna had stated. He added that he had earlier agreed to provide the documents on the condition that a proper investigation into the matter be conducted. The development comes even as the ruling BJP is fielding the controversy surrounding the revision of school textbooks.
The Contractor’s Association had held a press conference and had also written to the Prime Minister, alleging that the BJP leaders are forcibly taking a 40% cut in all the projects executed by the contractors. When the issue came to light, the Congress had demanded action against the ministers responsible and had even called for the imposition of President’s Rule in Karnataka.
