Did Reddy offer money to topple Karnataka government?

Bangalore: In another twist to the ongoing political drama in Karnataka - a local channel is airing visuals of what they say is recording of a meeting between the BJP's Janardhan Reddy and another man.

In the recording, Reddy is seen offering Rs 5 crore to a man, and Rs 15 crore to an unidentified person to help Reddy with the CBI, the Election Commission, and if necessary with the removal of the Chief Minister.

The channel is dating the video August 11, 2010.

However, Janardhan Reddy says the recording is fabricated and orchestrated by his rivals.

"This is totally a fabricated CD. Whatever they are showing is totally incorrect and this totally fabricated," he said.
