Bengaluru, May 7: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday sent a legal notice for criminal and civil defamation to Bharatiya Janata Party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and BS Yeddyurappa, over corruption allegations made against him.

Siddaramaiah has demanded a public apology from the Prime Minister.

The legal notice says that if PM Modi does not offer a public apology, the Karnataka CM will file a Rs 100 crore defamation case against him.

The notice also mentions the saffron party’s ad campaign in the poll bound-state, which also targeted the Siddaramaiah government.

During public rallies in Karnataka, the Prime Minister attacked Siddaramaiah and his government, calling it a ‘Seedha Rupaiya Sarkar’ and ’10 percent government’.
