"It also briefly brings out the irregularities committed by them to acquire such wealth. The list of assets cited in this booklet is only indicative, and by no means gives a complete picture of the actual wealth of the Gowda family," said the charge sheet.
The 'chargesheet' was released by Nirmala Sitharaman, BJP spokesperson in the presence of State BJP president K S Eshwarappa and Shobha Karandlaje, Minister for Energy .
Ms Sitharaman said that it was necessary to release the chargesheet as the 'frustrated' opposition was continuously charging the government with 'false allegations' preventing the government to function well as it was spending half of its time justifying 'false allegations' levelled against it.
"It is very disheartening. The charge sheet has 'credible and substantive evidence' about Gowda family's misdeeds," she said.
Meanwhile, Gowda, outraged by the Yeddyurappa government, had staged a protest in front of Yeddyurappa's official residence against 'non-release' of funds for development in his parliamentary constituency and said, "they (BJP) have power. Who prevented them from ordering a probe?"
"Let Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, if he has the guts, order a CBI investigation into our assets. Let the truth come out and guilty punished," said Gowda, provoked by the BJP's 'charge sheet' criticising the Gowda family of possessing Rs 1,500 crore wealth.
"Let Yeddyurappa seek probe by an international agency into our assets," said Kumaraswamy to reporters in Mysore. He also said that the whole episode of Dharamsthala proved that Yeddyurappa was a coward.
