Panaji: Even as the top BJP leaders face flak over the return of B.S. Yeddyurappa to the party, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has admitted that his former Karnataka counterpart may not be spotless after all.

Asked about the criticism faced by the BJP over the re-entry of Yeddyurappa, who has been accused of corrupt practices, Parrikar said in an interview telecast on a local cable channel late Sunday: "You cannot say someone is corrupt until at least something prima facie is found... I am not saying he is spotless."

Parrikar also said that several graft cases against Yeddyurappa had already been thrown out and that the real source of corruption were the powerful Reddys, the mining barons, who were ministers in the BJP-led government in Karnataka.
