Bengaluru: The lottery scam in Karnataka including police officials is becoming a cause for political war in state.
Following the allegations by JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy that the Congress government at the state is suporting the tainted police officials involved in the lottery scam, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday retaliated saying that HD Kumaraswamy is trying to derail the lottery scam investigation.
Addressing the media here, CM stated that baseless allegations were hurled at him and the government by the JD (S) Supremo Deve Gowda and his son HD Kumaraswamy.
“When Janardhana Reddy accused Kumaraswamy of accepting a bribe of Rs 150 crore from the mining lobby, why Deve Gowda did not advise his son to hand over the case to the CBI?” questioned Siddaramaiah.
JD(S) leader has blamed the Congress government and Home Minister KJ George of being involved in the scam without any evidence, stated CM Siddaramaiah.
