BS Yeddyurappa salute BJP flag
Bangalore, Mar 9: Amid fresh charges of corruption levelled against him by the JD(S) today, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has been summoned by BJP high command for "consultations". The Chief Minister's secretariat told PTI here Yeddyurappa would leave for Delhi by 7.25 AM flight tomorrow.

Yeddyurappa is likely to call on BJP president Nitin Gadkari. He is also expected to meet other senior leaders, including Arun Jaitley, in-charge of party affairs in Karnataka, party sources said.

In his latest charge, senior JD(S) leader HD Kumarasamy released a set of documents at a press conference in Delhi claiming that an educational trust run by Yeddyurappa had received over Rs 27 crore as donation from companies, including some loss-making ones, in return for offical favours.

The press conference was also attended by Sitaram Yechury (CPI-M), A B Bardhan (CPI) and Namo Nageswara Rao (TDP) among others, who said they will raise the issue in Parliament.
