Allegations Against Yediyurappa: Denial Amidst Controversy and Legal Vows

Former Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa finds himself embroiled in controversy as he faces allegations under the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, stemming from an incident alleged to have occurred at his residence on February 2, 2024. Denying the accusations, Yediyurappa asserts his intention to confront the legal proceedings head-on.

The complaint, filed by the victim’s mother, accuses Yediyurappa of sexually assaulting her 17-year-old daughter during a visit to seek assistance with a separate case. The former Chief Minister contends that the complainant and her daughter had previously sought his aid, portraying the allegations as a misrepresentation of events.

Amidst speculation of political motives behind the allegations, Yediyurappa refrains from implicating any political conspiracy, maintaining his focus on addressing the legal challenge. Despite the unfolding legal battle, Yediyurappa remains resolute in his political pursuits, expressing confidence in the BJP’s electoral prospects and reinforcing his commitment to contesting the Lok Sabha elections.
