Siddaramaiah dismisses HDK's charges

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah (in pic) on Monday dismissed as baseless JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy’s allegation against him on the KPSC issue and, in turn, questioned his intention behind advocating the cause of those who were protesting the State government’s decision to withdraw 2011 notification on gazetted probationary posts.

Kumaraswamy claims himself to be against corruption. His supporting the controversial selection process despite the CID investigation establishing large-scale irregularities, has given rise to number of doubts.

Were these candidates (those protesting against the notification withdrawal) selected based on his (Kumaraswamy) recommendation,” he questioned in a press release.

He further sought to clarify that there was no basis for the JD(S) leader’s allegation that the government withdrew the notification as a relative of retired IPS officer Kempaiah failed in the selection process.

Speaking to reporters, Siddaramaiah sought to know whether H D Deve Gowda, H D Kumaraswamy and H D Revenna never made calls to KPSC members. The chief minister said he had never sought money for recommending jobs.

Siddaramaiah accused Kumaraswamy of spreading lies. “Kumaraswamy is behaving irresponsibly. He should realise that he is a former chief minister,” Siddaramaiah said.
