New Delhi: Breaking the silence the Congress party reacted to the raids on former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa’s residences in Bangalore in connection with illegal mining in the state.

Talking to reporters here on Wednesday, Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said, “The law will take its course in raids on B S Yeddyurappa residences in Karnataka.” The congress is not in a position to comment on the disputed issue added Alvi.

Interestingly, the raids come in the wake of the CBI registering a case against Yeddyurappa and others in line with the May 11 Supreme Court directive ordering a probe by the central agency into alleged undue favours shown by him to firms involved in illegal mining in lieu of donations to a charitable trust run by his kin when he was the Chief Minister.
