Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai on Thursday rejected the Congress party’s charge of any electoral fraud committed in Bengaluru and said he was ready to launch an investigation into the matter.

The CM responded to National General Secretary of Congress and Karnataka in charge Randeep Surjewala demanding his resignation claiming that he is directly responsible for a corrupt election practice by appointing a private entity to provide door-to-door voter information collect in town.

Bommai called it a baseless charge and said the opposition congress has “bankrupt ideas” that led it to make such allegations without any evidence.

He said he was ready to have the matter investigated.

“What I feel is that Congress has bankrupt ideas. It is a matter between the Election Commission of India, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the (concerned) NGO,” said Bommai.

He added that if the NGO has abused its position, it will be questioned and action taken.

What is the proof that what private information was given to whom. There is nothing on paper. It’s an unfounded accusation. I’m really amazed at how Congress is bankrupt with ideas… there’s no evidence at all,” Bommai said.

He said he was ready for an investigation.

“Let an investigation be made and the truth will come out. We will not shy away from an investigation. I ask the BBMP Commissioner to make a case,” said the Chief Minister.

Surjewala had claimed that in August this year the BBMP authorized a private company to conduct a door-to-door survey of voters ‘at no charge’ and it had collected details such as their gender and native language, in addition to collecting voter ID and Aadhaar Data.
