Looks like the Karnataka politics has twists and turns no less than a commercial film. The blame game started between BJP and Congress parties in the state.

An alleged audiotape has created a sensation in the political circles and the BJP party.

Responding to the rumors on the video-tape, Yeddyurappa said, 'We don't have anything to do with the 17 disqualified MLAs'.

The Congress party has recently, alleged that BJP president Amit Shah and Yeddyurappa are trying to tumble the Congress-led coalition in the state. The video submitted by the Congress party reportedly highlights the role of the BJP party in the slump of the Karnataka government.

In the video, he said, 'the decision of the 17 JD-S and Congress MLAs to resign, which led to the fall of the government headed by HD Kumaraswamy in July, was taken by the central leadership of the BJP and that the party worker should honor the “sacrifice” of the rebel MLAs'.

Yeddyurappa said that Congress party is trying to twist his statements and benefit from the current situation.

Earlier, Karnataka Congress leaders met Ram Nath Kovind and submitted a memorandum requesting the removal of Yeddyurappa. Reportedly, they have also submitted the video along with the memorandum.
