New Delhi/Bangalore, June 22 (IANS) / Deccan Herald.

A day after the Karnataka high court remarked that the state seemed to have become number one in corruption, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa Wednesday faced new charges of ''fraudulently'' acquiring a cement company in the state and fresh demands for his resignation

Former chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy levelled fresh allegations of graft against the chief minister.

“Big fishes of BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) are involved and their names will come out if the central government probes the affairs of a non-banking financial company in Kolkata through which Yeddyurappa’s family managed the illegal, fraudulent and deceptive acquisition of Ratna Cements in Belgaum district,” Kumaraswamy told reporters in New Delhi.

Kumaraswamy’s allegations came as his Janata Dal-Secular party and the Congress in Bangalore called for Yeddyurappa’s immediate resignation after state Chief Justice J.S. Khehar’s reported observation Tuesday that Karnataka seems to have become the number one corrupt state.

Nevermind who says what of him, Yediyurappa wouldn't quit till he is dislodged in the Assembly or dismissed by the Centre!

Justice Khehar reportedly made the statement while hearing a case pertaining to grant of licence for granite quarrying.

Kumaraswamy and Congress state president G. Parameshwara demanded the immediate response of the chief minister and the ruling BJP to the Chief Justice’s comments. Parameshwara sought Yeddyurappa’s resignation.
