Bangalore:

The Congress has dismissed a letter, allegedly written by Karnataka MLAs to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, which has now gone viral, as fake. The alleged “fake” letter is signed by 10 MLAs of the state’s ruling Congress and highlights several issues.

The letter claims that district in-charge ministers are not heeding the requests of legislators and funds allocated to their constituencies are not being released. In another startling claim, the letter mentions that unidentified third parties approached legislators seeking commissions to facilitate the release of funds.

Speaking to the media, one of the 10 MLAs said the letter was a personal communication and would be taken up for discussion in the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting on Thursday. But before it was officially presented, it was leaked to the media.

Disputing the content of the letter, he said the allegation of asking for money was not correct and the letter was doctored.

Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar dismissed the letter as fake. BR Patil, the MLA whose name appeared on the letterhead, also questioned the authenticity of the letter, accusing the BJP of “fabricating” it.

“This is my letterhead and I keep the serial number so that the pages are not misused. However, the letter that is being circulated has no serial number. It is fake. Maybe the BJP has created a fake letter. It needs to be investigated,” Mr Patil said.
