'Govt sending money to Delhi by spl flights'

JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy has charged the Congress government with regularly sending money to its party in New Delhi by special flights.

Replying to questions from reporters here on Tuesday, he said only some select people accompany the chief minister with the money. “Carrying such money on regular flights is not allowed. Hence, special flights are used,” he charged.

The two national parties – the Congress and the BJP – have looted Karnataka over the last nine years. This was evident even from the discussions in the legislature, he said.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his election campaigns in UP, has been speaking about high-level corruption in that state. In case Modi comes to Karnataka and sees the level of corruption, he will ask people to vote for the JD(S),” he said sarcastically.

Kumaraswamy, who chaired the party’s core committee meeting, said that 33 sitting MLAs of his party would get tickets to contest the next Assembly elections. Of the total 40 MLAs, seven have been suspended. He said the rest of the contestants would be selected based on their ability. In the first phase, the list of names of 105 to 120 contestants would be released.
