KPCC Chairman DK Shivakumar, referring to SIT’s investigation into the CD scandal involving former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, said an attempt was underway to “fix” him in the case.
Speaking at a congressional protest rally in Shivamogga on Friday, he said he would speak out about the incident at the appropriate time. âI know they are trying to fix me in this matter. But, I will expose those behind this incident at an appropriate time, âhe said.
Several leaders attending the rally, in support of BK Sangameshwara, MP Bhadravati, who is said to be “harassed” by the police, said the BJP leaders had engaged in illegal activities although they often chanted Lord’s name. Rama.
Former President KR Ramesh Kumar said: “Rama with a heavy heart sent his wife Sita as he respected the opinion of an individual in his state,” he said, asking if he was doing well from the Rama respected by the BJP.
Referring to the resignation of 17 Operation Lotus MPs, Mr. Kumar sarcastically asked if all the MPs, who were staying in Mumbai, read the Bhagvad Gita there or if they spent time doing yoga. Former Minister Krishna Byre Gowda said that “BJP leaders chant Lord Rama’s name, but behave worse than Ravana”. Referring to the CD scandal, he said the BJP had a bad reputation in Karnataka for its “immoral conduct”. âSomeone called this a plot to fix the minister. What is the conspiracy? .. Are we responsible for his conduct? He asked.
Former Minister G. Parameshwara said: âPreviously, BJP leaders collected bricks on behalf of Srirama. Where are the bricks? Now they are fundraising for the temple of Ram. Where is the money they collected earlier for the same purpose? ”
Opposition leader Siddaramaiah said the current government was “immoral” because the party had resigned 17 MPs from opposition parties. He alleged that they were offered crores of rupees each and came to power.
Further, he said Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has no moral rights to remain in power given the state’s financial situation. During his reign, the state loan had increased, beyond all records, he said.
Congress hosted the event to condemn police action against Mr. Sangameshwara, in a clash between Congress workers and the BJP during a Kabaddi tournament on February 28. The MP’s son is among those arrested in this case.
