Poojary demands dissolution of K'taka Assembly

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, Sep 14 (UNI) Senior Congress leader B Janardhan Poojary today demanded the dissolution of the Karnataka Assembly following corruption charges levelled against Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and some of his Cabinet colleagues.

Talking to newspersons here, he said the Rs-150 crore bribery charge by an MLC belonging to the coalition partner BJP, was a sufficient ground for the dissolution of the Assembly. The BJP, which talked about value-added politics, should prove it in action and the Cabinet should recommend to the Governor to dissolve the Assembly and order fresh elections, he demanded.

Reiterating his demand for a CBI inquiry into the bribery charge, Mr Poojary appealed to JD(S) President H D Deve Gowda to advise his son Kumaraswamy to dissolve the Assembly and seek people's mandate.

To a question, he said Mr Janardhan Reddy, who levelled the allegation, was not an accused like the multi-crore stamp paper scam kingpin Abdul Kareem Telgi. ''Reddy is not an accused in any case to lie in order to safeguard his interests. An accused may tell lies.'' Charging Mr Gowda and his family with having acquired property worth crores of rupees, Mr Poojary demanded that he should come out with details of the property his family members possessed. ''We have evidence to prove that Mr Gowda and his family have acquired lands and building worth crores of rupees. The details will be revealed after Mr Gowda comes out with the truth.'' To another question, he said Telgi himself had termed as ''false'', the tapes of his narco analysis screened by the media in which he had named some Congress officials. ''Only a thorough inquiry by the CBI could bring out the truth,'' he added.
