Don't mess with Gowda's sons, HDK warns officials

 JD(S) State president H D Kumaraswamy on Friday warned officials that they will face consequences if they took action against his family members wrongfully.

He was addressing party workers at Palace Grounds here, who had assembled to witness retired IAS officer Baburao Mudabi joining the JD(S). “We, the sons of Deve Gowda, have not done anything illegal, unlike the sons of former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa.

If there is any action against our family members beyond the laws, then the officers will face consequences,” he said.

Referring to Lokayukta cases pertaining to amassing of properties disproportionate to known sources of income, he said: “It is impossible for Yeddyurappa to send our family members to prison. Officers are preparing reports as per Yeddyurappa’s directions.

They will face the consequences.” The Lokayukta police raided the house of H D Balakrishna Gowda seven years after his retirement, which was illegal, he said.
