CBI targets former CM HD Kumaraswamy on phone tapping case and IMA scams
The massive protest by the various Vokkaliga organisations had twin objectives. While CBI department has also targeted the former CM HD Kumarswamy for phone tapping and IMA scams.
The senior Congress leader said “The Vokkaliga leaders apparently want to convey a message to BJP leader that the community won’t tolerate vindictive politics against JD(S) leaders, mainly Kumaraswamy,” he said.
Kumaraswamy expressed about BJP’s vindictive politics, “I’m told my pictures were displayed in the rally by my supporters who fear I may be arrested. Nobody can arrest me as I haven’t done anything wrong,” he said.
Nanjavadhutha Swamy, the pontiff of Spatikapuri Mutt would be warned to target Vokksliga leaders, “The main objective of Wednesday’s rally was to tell people that how these agencies have been targeting Vokkaliga leaders in Karnataka and ask them to prepare for a bigger fight.”
JD(S) speaker said, “It’s clear that BJP wants to finish off opposition parties and Vokkaliga leaders. But, they should know that people are watching them and they may explode anytime to teach them a lesson.”
