Shah uses corruption charge to attack CM 12.8.2017 deccanherald.com
BJP national president Amit Shah on Saturday launched a tirade against the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka for shielding corrupt ministers. "The Karnataka government is the most corrupt in India. It's shameless. People are getting raided, but no one resigns," Shah said, in an apparent reference to Energy Minister D K Shivakumar who was raided by income tax authorities. Shah, the saffron party's key strategist, was addressing a jam-packed hall comprising scholars, businesspersons and doctors. Shah arrived in Bengaluru on Saturday morning to begin his three-day tour of the state. Shah targetted Siddaramaiah, saying the Congress government should be "thrown out for eating up all of the Centre's grants". He likened the Centre to a power plant that supplies electricity to all states. "The state government here is like a burnt transformer. That's why people here get nothing.
