SHIVAMOGGA : Former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Tuesday called for a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into alleged “obscene video” case linked to JD(S) MP Prajwal Revanna.

“If it is necessary. We only going to request honourable courts to direct the central government to refer this issue to CBI, let us see, enquiry may be conducted by the CBI,” HD Kumarswamy  said in an exclusive interview.

The JD(S) leader also stated that just three days before the polls, certain opposition factions, notably some Congress leaders and a BJP leader, collaborated to tarnish Prajwal’s image and that of the Deve Gowda family.

Kumaraswamy alleged that this was a desperate attempt by Congress after their campaign failed, and they misused government power to circulate pen drives containing damaging content.

HD Kumaraswamy,  said “Three days before going to the polls, some sections of our opposition groups particularly some Congress leaders including one BJP leader, colluded. After the unsuccessful campaign and internal backstabbing, they knew that there was no success for them. So before going to the polls, they decided to circulate some pen drives about Prajwal Revanna, whether they are fake or genuine, I do not know”.

On Tuesday, the core committee of the Janata Dal (Secular) recommended the suspension of Prajwal Revanna, who is facing an SIT probe in connection with an alleged obscene video case.

BRS leader and MP from Hasan, Prajwal Revanna is the grandson of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda.

Addressing a joint press conference in Bengaluru, JD(S) core committee chairman GT Devegowda announced the decision to recommend Revanna’s suspension to the party’s national president.

Backing the Bhartiya Janata party, the JD(S) leader went on to attack Congress for questioning the BJP and PM.

“Why these congress friends are blaming the BJP? Why they are blaming Narendra Modi ji, what is the role of Narendra Modi ji in this issue or any BJP leaders?” Kumaraswamy asked.

Prajwal Revanna is the candidate of the BJP-JD(S) alliance in Hassan in Karnataka, which went to the polls on April 26 in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Kumaraswamy further asserted that if the JD(S) MP comes out wrong in the case, he will not be granted support from the party.

“Anything goes wrong with this Prajwal. We are not going to support him also as a family. Also, we are ready to actually direct or request the concerned authorities take necessary action if he goes wrong,” he said.

Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women has taken suo motu cognizance in the Prajwal Revanna case and has asked the Karnataka Director General of Police to submit a detailed report within three days on the issue.

“The National Commission for Women has come across multiple media reports indicating that several video clips of sexual nature, allegedly involving Prajwal Revanna sitting MP for Lok Sabha from Hassan constituency sexually abusing hundreds of women were circulated on social media in recent days,” the NCW said in its notice.
