CM Bommai’s attack on Congress, said- Chilum fraud case will backfire on Congress
Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday said the Chilume election fraud case would backfire on the Congress as NGOs were allowed to conduct election activities in violation of rules during its rule.
The chief minister said he had ordered an inquiry into the matter since 2013 when the Siddaramaiah government was in power. He said, “Investigation will reveal what instructions were given to the NGO by that government. People should know why the orders were issued to Chilum and the reasons behind it.” “This incident will reflect heavily on the Congress party,” he said.
Bommai said that his government allowed Chilum to create awareness among voters with the only condition that he should not have any affiliation or connection with any political party. But the previous chief minister, Siddaramaiah, issued orders for revision of the electoral list, which the Election Commission had to do.
