Manjegowda amassed wealth worth Rs 500 cr to Rs 700 cr: Revanna

JD(S) leader and Holenarasipura MLA H D Revanna has accused Baguru Manjegowda, the president of Karnataka State Government Employees' Association and a section officer with Transport department, of amassing wealth to the tune of Rs 500 crore to Rs 700 crore.

Speaking to media persons here on Saturday, Revanna said, "The chief secretary is more than willing to accept Manjegowda's resignation despite him amassing astronomical amounts through illegal means."

He urged the chief secretary to act sensibly and carefully on the resignation issue.

"Manjegowda is serving Badoota (a non-vegetarian spread) to the voters at several places in violation of the model code of conduct. But no case has been registered against him," Revanna alleged.

He demanded the authorities concerned to book a criminal case against Manjegowda and arrest him.
AICC president Rahul Gandhi keeps crowing that the JD(S) is B team of the BJP while he promotes thieves like Manjegowda, Revanna said.

"The JD(S) will launch a legal battle if the CS accepts his (Manjegowda's) resignation," he warned.

Manjegowda has tendered his resignation as the president of the state employees association and from his job with Transport department to contest against Revanna in Holenarasipura constituency on Congress ticket.

To a query on the reported tiff between Hassan Deputy Commissioner Rohini Sindhuri and District Minister A Manju, Revanna said, "DC Rohini Sindhuri is doing a commendable job in ensuring a peaceful, free and fair elections. But the Congress leaders are trying to derail the administration by not letting the DC do her job."
