Opposition leader Yashpal Suvarna alleged that the CMC President Meenakshi Madhav Bannaje has accepted bribes from the builder whose tender was approved for the Vishweshwaraiah building.

Yashpal Suvarna asked for the details of the tender process for the Vishweshwaraiah building alleging irregularities. The CMC President in the previous general meeting had directed the CMC Commissioner Manjunathayya to hand over the documents. Yashpal hit out at the council saying that the documents were not given to the opposition councillors. The BJP members took the president to task by protesting in the council and demanded to produce the documents.

Congress members hit out at the BJP councillors and war of words were witnessed. The councillors then engaged in levelling allegations on each other.

As the war of words escalated in the council meeting, President Meenakshi adjourned the council for 10 minutes.
