Faced with negative PR, BS Yeddyurappa returns his Rs 1 crore car


Former Karnataka chief minister and senior BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa has returned his one Rs 1 crore Land Cruiser.

The report of the corruption-tainted BJP leader had caused huge outrage on social media on Saturday.

Explaining his decision, Yeddyurappa told ANI, “There was difference of opinion. So I yesterday returned that car (Rs.1 crore SUV) to Murugesh Nirani.”

BJP spokesperson in Karnataka S Prakash had on Saturday justified Yeddyurappa travelling in Rs 1-crore Land Crusier saying that the white luxury car had been “loaned” to the BJP chief by a sugar baron and politician (Murugesh Nirani) to tour the state.

Justifying his travel in the luxury car, Yeddyurappa had said, “Murugesh Nirani gave me this car for party work. After that, he will take back the car. I am going around in the state, so a good car is required, that’s what he told me. When I go to other districts, I’ll use their car. I am not going to take this car there.”
