The Hush Post: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has sent a legal notice for criminal and civil defamation to BJP, including none other than the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Yeddyurappa.
The legal notice has been sent over allegations of corruption levelled against Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah.
As per the notice, Siddaramaiah’s lawyer has cited that political advertisements displayed by the BJP and speeches given by PM Modi during election rallies were full of accusations by the saffron party and it promoting “false” and “defamatory” propaganda against Siddaramaiah.
The notice also contained excerpts and phrases from PM speeches which he addressed during the election rallies and said that the PM has intentionally and deliberately made several “defamatory” and “untrue” statements against the Karnataka CM.
“Advertisements are being published only for the purpose of harming the image of my client and the Indian National Congress Party,” the notice read.
Siddaramaiah’s counsel said that the allegations against his client are “false”, “fabricated”, and “politically motivated”.
On Sunday, the BJP had accused the Karnataka CM of ‘aiding, abetting, protecting and promoting’ the cheating of private investors in an alleged Ponzi scheme.
