Bengaluru: Reacting to BJP MP Anantkumar Hegde said that Devendra Fadnavis was made chief minister in Maharashtra to misuse funds was an indication of their culture All India Congress Committee (AICC) Incharge of Karnataka K C Venugopal on Monday said that the BJP knows to misuse funds.

Addressing presspersons, “BJP is very good at misusing money, it was not the culture of Congress party.”

“Money in every constituency could be seen in the bye-election. Where does the money come from? BJP did not have money for farmers in distress, but has for election,” he added.

Former union minister and BJP MP Ananthkumar Hegde has claimed his party colleague Devendra Fadnavis was made chief minister in Maharashtra last month despite lacking majority only to ‘protect’ Rs 40,000 crore central funds under the CM’s control from being ‘misused’.

Days after Fadnavis resigned barely 80 hours after taking oath for the second time as chief minister, Hegde, known for making controversial statements, sought to give a new twist to the episode describing the government formation by the BJP as a ‘drama’ played out to ensure that the funds meant for development works were ‘protected’.

“You all know that recently in Maharashtra for just 80 hours our person was Chief Minister, but soon Fadnavis resigned. Why did we have to do this drama? Didn’t we know- despite knowing we don’t have majority, why did he become CM? This is the question commonly every one ask,” Hegde said.
