Mangaluru : Former chief minister Basavaraj Bommai has said that the BJP has no connection with the Chaitra Kundapur case, wherein the latter, a Hindutva activist has been arrested for cheating a businessman of crores of rupees after promising a BJP ticket.

“This case has nothing to do with BJP. There should be a thorough probe. Anyone who has erred must be punished and subject to probe. Even the BJP considers demanding cash for ticket seriously. There are several activists, that does not mean the party has links with them, let a probe be done, let the truth come out,” Bommai said.

On the proposed pact with the JD(S) for Lok Sabha elections in the state, Bommai said the discussions on seat sharing are in the preliminary stage. Senior leaders will hold talks and take an appropriate decision. BJP is keen on getting the maximum number of seats from Karnataka, he said.

To question on the drought situation in the state, Bommai said the government should immediately take steps to provide compensation to farmers for crop loss due to the weak monsoon.
