Will lodge plaint against CM with EC for misusing power: Kumaraswamy

JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy on Saturday accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of misusing power to win polls and added that he would lodge a complaint with the Election Commission for violating the model code of conduct.

"The state Intelligence department has given its report mentioning about the safe constituencies for the chief minister. The chief minister has obtained the Intelligence report even after the election schedule was announced. This is ample evidence of misuse of power," he said.

Intelligence report?

"The Intelligence report, which is doing rounds on social media, has cautioned Siddaramaiah against contesting from Chamundeshwari Assembly constituency. It says that the JD(S) leaders, including the sitting MLA from the party G T Devegowda, are mobilising Vokkaliga votes and that contesting from Chamundeshwari is not a viable option for CM," Kumaraswamy said

"The report also recommended the CM alternative options. It suggested that Varuna (Mysuru), Basavakalyan (Bidar), Gangavati (Koppal) and Shantinagar (Bengaluru) constituencies are safe for the chief minister," the JD(S) leader said.
