BENGALURU: Karnataka chief minister B S Yediyurappa on Tuesday alleged that Popular Front of India (PFI) was behind the attack on Congress MLA Tanveer Sait and that its leader Siddaramaiah was “indirectly responsible” for the assault as he had given “protection” to the hardline Islamic organization during his regime.
Sait, a former minister, was stabbed by a youth, Maqbool alias Farhan Pasha, when he was attending a wedding in Mysuru on Sunday.
On Monday, Siddaramaiah had said he suspected that the attack was to “eliminate” Sait and added that a thorough police investigation will reveal if Social Democratic Party of India, the political wing of PFI, was involved in the crime. He had also attacked Yediyurappa alleging “the collapse of law and order in the state”. On Tuesday, the CM returned the attack, saying: “When Siddaramaiah was chief minister, he withdrew all cases against PFI.” He accused Siddaramai- ah of protecting PFI for votes.
