Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Monday hit back at Rahul Gandhi on “40 per cent Commission sarkar” jibe at his government, saying the Congress leader is yet to respond to his “corruption chargesheet.”

Bommai also dismissed Gandhis claim on Sunday that his party would be voted to power in Karnataka. “Does he know any ground reality here (Karnataka)”, he asked. The Chief Minister said he had sent a “charge-sheet” to Gandhi during his Bharat Jodo Yatra on the “scams” during the (previous) Congress government but he is yet to get a reply. “The 40 per cent commission chargesheet is on him (Rahul Gandhi).

Gandhi said here on Sunday “the tag of 40 per cent commission sarkar” has stuck. “Everybody understands that the BJP in Karnataka is a symbol of corruption”, the Congress leader said.
