Reminding about the alleged " professional relation" between the Reddys and BJP leader Sushma Swaraj and Venkaiah Naidu, Congress' Digvijay Singh claimed that CBI should start inquiring about both BJP leaders.
Commenting in the arrest of the Karnataka mining barons, Singh stated, "We (Congress) have always said it. We think Sushma Swaraj and Venkaiah Naidu's professional tie-ups with the Reddy brothers should also be investigated."
Hurling more allegations on the former karnataka Tourism Minister, Janardhana Reddy and his brother and brother-in-law, Karunakaran Reddy and Srinivasa Reddy respectively, Singh said, "Reddys were not only involved in illegal minings but also they used to take protection money from others. Whatever happened today should have happened 3 years earlier."
