The Congress today renewed its attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, demanding an investigation after a report in news magazine The Caravan alleged "payoffs amounting to over Rs. 1,800 crore" by former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa to "BJP's national leaders, its central committee, and judges and advocates". The article, titled "The Yeddy Diaries", claims documents accessed by the magazine show that the diary entries - made in Mr Yeddyurappa's handwriting in 2009 - have been in possession of the Income Tax department since 2017. It also alleges that Arun Jaitley, named in the diary entries as one of the alleged beneficiaries, "chose not to act" when he was alerted by an income tax official.
