BJP responsible for Deepak's murder, says Kumaraswamy

Former chief minister and JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy on Monday said that BJP leaders are behind the murder of Hindu activist Deepak Rao, who was murdered in Dakshina Kannada, recently.

Speaking to reporters here Kumaraswamy said that he has information that a BJP corporator is behind the murder. "I received the information about the involvement of a BJP leader in the murder. But the government should confirm it," he said.

Kumaraswamy said, the police have arrested four persons in connection with the murder a few days back, but, the government is not disclosing the reason behind the murder. The two-national parties - the BJP and the Congress - have come under an agreement in the murder case, he suspected.

Yettinahole project

Kumaraswamy said that he has no objection to the Yettinahole Integrated Drinking Water Project. "I never said that I will stop the project. I never opposed it. In the name of projects, including Yettinahole, the state government has indulged in various irregularities. I had said that I will stop the irregularities, but, not the project," he said.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the Congress party leaders have been targeting me by taking up the issue as they have no other matter. The CM and Chikkaballapur MP M Veerappa Moily had said that they would provide water to Chikkaballapur and Kolar districts within a year, in 2013. But even after four years, the Congress government has failed to complete the project, he pointed out.

"I have nothing to learn from Siddaramaiah. I have learnt enough from my father H D Deve Gowda," Kumaraswamy said.
