Karnataka BJP leaders will lay siege to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's residence in Bengaluru on July 3, demanding his resignation over the alleged illegal money transfer scam in the state-run corporation, the party said. State President BY Vijayendra said on Saturday.

Unauthorized transfer is claimed in the note. 187 crore belonging to the Corporation from its bank account, and from 88.62 crore were illegally transferred to various accounts allegedly belonging to “reputable” IT companies and a Hyderabad-based cooperative bank, among others.

In the note, Chandrasekhar named the corporation's now-suspended managing director JG Padmanabha, accounts officer Parashuramji Durognavar and Union Bank of India chief manager Sachsamita Rawal, while also saying that the “minister” was responsible for the transfer of funds. Verbal orders were issued.

Scheduled Tribes Welfare Minister B Nagendra resigned on June 6, following allegations against him in connection with the scam.
