On Saturday, Jul 17 Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa held a series of meetings with Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Nitin Gadkari.
"We have explained in detail to Sushma Swaraj and she has come to know about every detail and what the Congress strategy is," said Karnataka Tourism Minister Janardhan Reddy.
"There is nothing in the allegations levelled by Congress. Congress has lost its image. For nothing, they are fighting. Whatever the Congress strategy is, it will fail. We are all fighting together against Congress. We are all honest BJP workers," he added.
The Reddy brothers are facing allegations of illegal mining of iron ores by encroaching upon a large chunk of forestland in the area causing huge damage to the environment.
Yeddyurappa is under mounting pressure to sack the Reddy brothers and save his government in Karnataka.
