We were making buffoons of the media, JD(S) defence on RS sting operation


New Delhi, June 4: The Janatha Dal (S) which is in the eye of the storm following a sting operation by television channels has as expected adopted a unique defence. They were making buffoons out of the media and they knew well in advance that such an operation was being conducted.

This is a statement that came from H D Kumaraswamy, the party president. They were having a bit of fun and trying to entertain themselves, Kumaraswamy also added. He further went on to ask where was the money involved.

We were making buffoons of the media, JD(S) defence on RS sting operation.
Standing in defence of the MLAs was also the party's supremo, Deve Gowda. He said that it is an attempt to undermine regional parties. Let those questioning our integrity come here and contest an election.

Further the JD(S) also questioned the ethics behind such a sting. One one hand they say it is off the record and then they record everything and play it out. Where are the ethics, Kumaraswamy also questioned.

Two television channels had aired a sting operation where two MLAs were allegedly discussing money to vote for Rajya Sabha candidates. This had led to some amount of debate and the Election Commission of India has sought a report from the state EC in this regard.
