Bengaluru: ‘PayCM’ posters featuring the image of Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and a QR code were spotted all around the City on Wednesday September 21. The QR code directs you to the ’40 per cent Sarkara’ website, which Congress recently developed to allow citizens to report government corruption.

The video and images of posters have gone viral on social media platforms.

The website was created to gather complaints about corrupt officials. But it’s not clear if Congress is accountable for the posters. The term “40% Sarkara” refers to allegations made by contractors in Karnataka that BJP leaders and officials have accepted bribes totalling 40 per cent of the tender amount for state-funded infrastructure projects.

The official Twitter handle of the National Student Union of India shared the poster with a caption, “For any deal #PayCM Karo!”

“Please download PayCM app frm BJP store For More Details 😁🤓🙏#40PercentSarkara,” wrote a Twitter user.

Following this incident, police and BBMP workers were seen removing the posters in various places in the City.

It can be recalled here that similar posters with the message “Welcome to 40% CM” were spotted in Hyderabad when Bommai was scheduled to participate in the BJP’s Hyderabad “Liberation Day” events last week.

He referred to it as a ‘planned conspiracy’ and slammed the Telangana Government for allowing “such baseless allegations against a Chief Minister.”
