Bengaluru: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday denied that its state president, B.S. Yeddyurappa wrote to Income Tax department head, Susil Chandra asking him to investigate minister, D.K. Shivakumar for tax evasion as alleged by his brother, D K Suresh on Saturday. Bharatiya Janata Party general secretary, N. Ravikumar hit out at Mr.Suresh for releasing a “fabricated letter” and presented another letter written by Mr Yeddyurappa to show the difference between the two.
Mr Yeddyurappa too denied that he had written to the Income Tax department against Mr Shivakumar. “Today D.K Suresh has alleged that I wrote to the Income Tax chief to investigate his brother’s affairs since January 2017. But I have always been on good terms with Shivakumar. We have never criticized each other. The why should I write to the Income Tax department against him? Mr. Suresh is trying to create confusion on the issue. The letter is a fake," he asserted.
BJP sources say the letter may have been written by former MLA of Chennapatna, C.P. Yogeshwar, in the name of Mr. Yeddyurappa to get Mr. Shivakumar and his brother D.K. Suresh in trouble with the I-T department. They claim the letter is clearly a fake as Mr Yeddyurappa’s signature is to its right while in another letter he has signed to the left. “The email ID and Mr Yeddyurappa’s office address are also fake,” they contend.
