Billboards against Karnataka government in Telangana, a conspiracy, says Basavaraj Bommai
Reports say that some billboards have been put up in Telangana stating that there is 40 per cent commission government in Karnataka and alleging corruption in the state
Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday termed as a systematic conspiracy the billboards against the BJP government that have allegedly come up in Telangana.
“I am not aware of them (billboards in Telangana against 40 per cent commission) as I have not been there, but if it’s true, then it is systematic conspiracy,” Bommai told reporters.
He was replying to a query on some billboards having come up in Telangana stating that there is 40 per cent commission government in Karnataka and alleging corruption in the State.
Bommai wonders how appropriate it would be if such billboards are put up in Karnataka itself.
“I have no clue whether it was a private board or a government board. However, the State governments should not allow such boards to be put up in their States. That spoils the relation between the States,” he said.
