BJP conspiring to divert public attention: HDK

BJP conspiring to divert public attention: HDK

 Addressing reporters, he said BSK Trading Company, owned by his brother H D Balakrishne Gowda, had legally procured iron ore and exported it.

“There is nothing illegal about it. If there is any illegality, let the government prove it,” he said.

Chief Minister’s political secretary B J Puttaswamy had on Tuesday released a set of documents to support his claim that the companies owned by the family members of Kumaraswamy had exported about 1.5 lakh tonnes of iron ore, worth about Rs 167 crore, soon after he became the chief minister in 2006. He also alleged that the iron ore was given as bribe by some mining firms for receiving favours from Kumaraswamy.

The JD(S) leader said his brothers and sisters had divided the family property and were living separately since 1983.

“My family members are my wife Anitha Kumaraswamy and son Nikhil. Let me know if they have done anything illegal,” he said. He said he would soon expose the BJP’s “pseudo-campaign” against corruption in the UPA government.

“The BJP has announced a nationwide stir against the UPA government from June 24. At least two days before that, I will release a fresh set of documents in New Delhi on the corrupt acts in the Yeddyurappa government,” he said.


‘BSY tried to buy peace with HDK’

Close aides of JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday claimed Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa had tried to approach him for a patch-up at Kottakkal in Kerala. The aides said Kumaraswamy had earlier this month booked a majestic AC room at Ayurvedic Hospital & Research Centre, Kottakkal, from June 12. BJP MLC Lehar Singh, who learnt about Kumaraswamy’s visit to the ayurvedic centre, immediately booked two rooms, one for Yeddyurappa and another for himself, they claimed. The chief minister, who is presently staying at the Kottakkal Hospital for treatment, is reportedly trying to meet Kumaraswamy and persuade him not to expose any more scams in the BJP government. Kumaraswamy, however, postponed his admission to the hospital soon after learning that Yeddyurappa had booked a room from June 13, his aides claimed.
