Belagavi, May 6: Senior BJP leader and Vijayapur City MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal has revealed that some people from New Delhi had come to him with an offer to make him the chief minister if he paid Rs 2,500 crore.

Speaking at a convention of Lingayat Panchamasali community on Thursday, he warned people against bogus assurances of being given candidature in exchange of money and urged them not to fall prey to promises of being made a chief minister if they paid a huge sum.

"They had also assured me candidature for the Assembly election and meetings with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and BJP president J P Nadda," he said.

Yatnal said when that offer was made, he asked, "Where should I keep it? Can it be kept in a room or godown?"

He said many people in politics get cheated with such assurances of candidature. "I have worked under former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee as well as Lal Krishna Advani, Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley. How can such a person be asked to keep Rs 2,500 crore ready to become chief minister?"

He asked people in the community not to hurt their political prospects by falling prey to such assurances. "Many people say 'we will take you to Sonia Gandhi or J P Nadda’s residence'. Such things keep on happening in politics and one needs to be cautious," he said.

Ravindranath.jpg

Bengaluru, May 10: Terming his recent transfer to the training wing of the Karnataka state police as a “harassment” by the government of Karnataka, Director General of Police (DGP) Dr P Ravindranath has tender his resignation.

After handing over charge to Addl DGP Arun Chakravarthy at Directorate of Civil Rights Enforcement (DCRE) yesterday, Ravindranath had walked from his office on Palace Road to the office of the state police chief on Nrupathunga Road to meet state police chief Praveen Sood.

In his resignation letter addressed to Chief Secretary P Ravi Kumar, the IPS officer wrote: "I am pained to observe the opacity shown by Karnataka Chief Secretary, Ravikumar when I requested him to issue government order to set up protection cell as per rules of SC & ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Rules 1995."

"I am prematurely transferred without any public interest just to harass me, since I have taken legal action against people involved in fake caste certificate issue," he wrote.

The 1989-batch officer is known for resigning and later withdrawing his resignation letters. He had tendered his resignation in 2008, 2014 and 2020.

Earlier speaking to media, the top cop said that he is being targeted by a 'few individuals' who are influencing the government. "I am not against the government. The transfer is not on my request or in the interest of the public. It is a clear case of conspiracy and I have decided to resign," he claimed.  

Ravindranath said he demands justice and will take further decisions. "Recently, I had revealed the names of a couple of influential people during a press meet. Notices were issued to them to appear before the officer in the Directorate of Civil Rights Enforcement (DCRE), where I have worked for about one-and-a-half years. Soon after that press meet, I was targeted and the government decided to transfer me by violating norms," he added.

He expressed willingness to work at DCRE for some more days as he wants to give justice to the genuine SC/ST community. "I wanted to initiate action against those individuals who have taken fake certificates to obtain government jobs through the SC/ST quota. I have been working sincerely and without bias," he added.

Ravindranath, while serving as ADGP, had tendered his resignation to the then Chief Secretary TM Vijay Bhaskar through the state police chief Praveen Sood on October 28, 2020. He had then accused a ‘few individuals' of harassing him.

The officer was unhappy over the promotion of two other IPS officers to the post of director general of police when his name was second in seniority. He later withdrew the resignation after meeting then CM BS Yediyurappa.
