BENGALURU: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has rejected BJP’s demand for the resignation of Bengaluru Development Minister KJ George in the backdrop of CBI registering an FIR against the minister in the alleged suicide case of DySP M K Ganapathy.

“FIRs have been registered against so many ministers in union government; 20 of the 64 ministers in Modi government have been booked too. Of these 11 are facing serious criminal cases, including charges of attempt to murder. They should also quit. Will the BJP leaders demand their resignation too?” Siddaramaiah asked.

“Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been booked for serious criminal cases including attempt to murder, criminal intimidation and rioting. FIRs have been registered against BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate in Karnataka B S Yeddyurappa on charges of cheating, breach of trust and forgery. Will the BJP leaders launch an agitation against them too?” Siddaramaiah challenged.
