The country's federal investigative agency, the CBI has been renamed as 'Congress Bureau of Investigation' by Gadkari.
Speaking informally with media persons, Gadkari commented, "The Congress is constantly using the CBI against political opponents."
When confronted with the corruption in the BJP ruled Karnataka and the scam-tainted former Karnataka CM BS Yeddyurappa, Gadkari replied, "Tell me what are the allegations against him." He, however, did not make any comments on the Lokayukta report that nailed Yeddyurappa and said, "The case is now subjudice. We have taken action against him after the report form the Lok Ayukta. Everything will become clear once the High Court gives its verdict."
