Will investigate tenders issued by Congressional government in Karnataka, says CM Bommai over corruption allegations
Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Friday that the state government would investigate all tenders finalized for the execution of development work by previous governments, including the Karnataka Congress, in response to a question on a complaint filed by congressional leaders to the governor.
A congressional delegation, led by Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar, lodged a complaint with Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot, calling for the imposition of the presidential regime on “endemic corruption”.
Bommai said the letter, addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the contractors, was unclear and development work was not included. “I have ordered an investigation into their accusations. Now the friends of Congress are showing interest in the matter. So I will ask the Chief Secretary today to investigate all the tenders finalized by the congressional governments in Karnataka. “

Criticizing Congress, Bommai said they were the creators of the “commission threat.”
“They upped it every time they came to power. The video clip featuring a conversation of two congressional leaders talking about the commission went viral on social media sites and also aired on TV channels. “So they started threatening the commission and now they have submitted a memorandum. All entrepreneurs are aware of it. The allegation of the Congress party in this regard is just a joke,” Bommai said.
Bommai said raids by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) were able to expose corrupt officials. “We initiated the process of cleaning the system through ACB raids. “
