Revanna, son of former Prime Minister H D Devegowda, had on Wednesday, Feb 2 claimed that he (Mr Gowda) had documents regarding purchase of Rs 1,000 crore worth of lands in benami names in Shimoga district and in and around the city by Yeddyurappa and his family members.

However, denying all accusations, Yeddyurappa claimed, "My family has not purchased lands in benami names. The allegations are baseless and aimed to mislead people. If Revanna has documents, let him submit it to Lokayukta, the court or to me."

Time has proved that despite several rituals and worshiping of Gods, the "Black magic" does not leave Yeddyurappa as it continues to haunt Karnataka CM.
