New Delhi, Mar 10: Amid fresh corruption charges made by the Opposition Janata Dal (Secular), Karnataka Chief Minister S Yeddyurappa on Thursday met senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders here.

The BJP High Command had summoned Yeddyurappa to New Delhi for consultations after JD (S) leaders HD Deve Gowda and his son, HD Kumaraswamy, slammed him for misusing his position to show favours to private companies.

Before his meeting with the BJP veterans, Yeddyurappa dismissed the corruption charges as a political conspiracy against him by the JD (S).

"It's a baseless allegation. When they (JD (S)) have run out all the options, now it's a new attack. Both Deve Gowda and Kumaraswamy can come and check it (donations)," Yeddyurappa told reporters here.

"My two sons are running an educational institution. There are around 2,000 students taking education there. There are many people who wanted to avail donation from the students for the seats in the institutions and that is how these institutions are run. The allegations is that, some people take donation and avail of government facilities at the same time, including both my sons," he added.

Kumaraswamy had also released some statistics to indicate the involvement of Yeddyurappa in fraudulent cases.

Yeddyurappa had earlier been accused of misusing his post and involved in allotting state-owned land plots to his kith and kin.

Karnataka Government has ordered a judicial probe into all land allotments over the past two decades, but its report is awaited.
