Bengaluru, May 8: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a potshot at BJP Chief Amit Shah, saying the saffron party is being led by ‘murder accused’.
Addressing media in poll-bound Karnataka, Gandhi said “Amit Shah has been accused of murder. Don’t think he has lot of credibility. People in India forget that BJP President is a murder accused. The party that talks about honesty, decency has a person who’s been accused of murder as President”.

He also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi that why he has picked B.S. Yeddyurappa, who has been in jail as the BJP chief ministerial candidate for upcoming Karnataka assembly polls.
“We are repeatedly asking the Prime Minister why he has chosen a corrupt person, who has been in jail, as his party’s CM candidate. Also, why Prime Minister Modi has given eight tickets to the Reddy brothers, who have stolen Rs. 35 000 crores of the Karnataka’s people money? Prime Minister should answer these questions”, Gandhi asked.
The election to the 224-member Karnataka State Assembly is around the corner, the state has become a political battleground.
Voting is schduled to take place on May 12. While results will be declared on May 15.
