Caught in sex-for-job scandal, Karnataka minister Ramesh Jarkiholi resigns, BJP left red-faced | 10 points

The BS Yediyurappa government in Karnataka is caught in the eye of a fresh political storm after state Water Resources Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi was implicated in a sex-for-job scandal.

Video clips showing Jarkiholi demanding sexual favours from an unidentified woman in return for a job have been made public.

Under heavy attack from the Opposition, Jarkiholi resigned from his post on Wednesday.

The allegation, just ahead of the Budget session of the state legislature starting from Thursday has come as a huge embarrassment to the BS Yediyurappa-led BJP government.
