Gowda pulls up Prajwal for 'bucket culture' remark

Upset with JD(S) youth leader Prajwal Revanna’s “bucket culture” comment, the JD(S) leadership is learnt to have advised him to exercise restraint while making public speeches.

No sooner than Prajwal’s statements on the “prevalence of sycophancy” in the JD(S) were widely reported on Wednesday, than JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda telephoned his grandson and reprimanded him.

According to sources, Gowda is learnt to have told Prajwal that he had already issued a notice to the youngster for his “suitcase culture” statement recently, and that he should stop repeatedly embarrassing the party.

Sources in the party said Prajwal has been mounting pressure on the party to let him contest the Assembly election. He is planning to contest the election from Rajarajeshwarinagar constituency in Bengaluru.

Both Gowda and his son H D Kumaraswamy have stated that only two members from the Gowda family will be fielded — Kumaraswamy and his brother H D Revanna. Meanwhile, Gowda on Thursday said Prajwal had not participated in the Rajarajeshwarinagar party workers meeting on October 10 as an aspirant.

Gowda told reporters in Bengaluru during the party’s legal cell meeting that the party core committee will finalise the candidate list.
