New Delhi:A video allegedly showing Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa admitting to carrying out Operation Kamala in the state on the instructions of BJP’s national leaders has emerged.In the video, which was reportedly shot during the BJP core committee meeting in Hubballi recently, the man alleged to be Yediyurappa is addressing a gathering, reportedly of BJP’s MLAs. The video is recorded by one of the members at the meeting, and while the audio is captured, one cannot see Yediyurappa in the video.
In the clip, shared widely on social media, Mr Yediyurappa says that the BJP national president and Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, knew about the plans of the rebel MLAs who camped at a five-star hotel in Mumbai, skipping the floor test despite party whips.
“You do know, don’t you, that it wasn’t Yediyurappa who made them take this decision. The national president was aware of this and supervised this and made all arrangements. You do know this? You do know, don’t you, about the decision of 17 people – they were away in Mumbai for two-three months and were not able to go to their constituencies or see their families. You do know that, don’t you?” the Chief Minister is heard saying.
He also clearly reveals that @AmitShah took care of the defectors for 2.5 months in Mumbai.
