BJP to fight Yeddy issue legally

New Delhi: BJP today said the party will "legally" fight the cases involving former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who was sent to jail for seven days after his bail plea was rejected by a Lokayukta court in Karnataka, but maintained that it will stick to "zero tolerance against corruption".

The main opposition party also lashed out at Congress for its remarks on the issue, saying the latter had no moral right to comment on corruption as it itself was "neck-deep" into it.
"We will certainly fight the issue legally, but BJP will adopt a zero tolerance towards corruption," said party spokesman J P Nadda.

On extending the party`s support to Yeddyurappa, Nadda said, "Legally we will be there, but at the same time, the party would have zero tolerance towards corruption."

Hitting out at Congress on corruption issue, the BJP leader said it had failed to take action against its leaders involved in many scams.
