Congress yesterday accused senior BJP leader B S Yedduyurappa of paying over 1800 crore rupees to the BJP's national leaders during his tenure as Karnataka Chief Minister. 

Briefing media in New Delhi, party spokesman Randeep Surjewala citing a report of a magazine, stated that Mr. Yedduyurappa also paid central committee, Judges and advocates. 

The magazine report stated that Mr Yedduyurappa recorded these alleged payouts in a Karnataka state Assembly legislator's 2009 diary. 

Reacting to this Mr Yedduyurappa said Congress has planted the story in the media to gain mileage in the upcoming elections. 

In a tweet he said I-T Department officials have already proved that the documents are forged and fake. Mr Yeddyurappa said issues raised by Congress leaders are irrelevant and false. 

BJP  dismissed the Congress allegations over reported payoffs to its top leaders saying that the allegation is based on falsehood and misrepresentation. 

Briefing reporters in New Delhi, Senior Party leader and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, Congress allegation is on the basis of a loose sheet of paper and questioned the authenticity of the diary. 

He said, the Congress party wherein many top leaders are out on bail and suffering many court proceedings has now resorted to create a web of lies. 

On Sam Pitroda's remarks over the Balakot Air Strike, Mr Prasad criticized Pitroda for seeking evidence. He said, by such remarks, Mr Pitroda has demoralized the morale of Armed forces.
