Legal cell of ruling Congress in Karnataka on Tuesday made a strong plea to state Assembly Speaker Kagodu Thimmappa, seeking sanction to prosecute former chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and 39 other JDS MLAs on the cash-for-MLC seat audio CD row involving him.
Turning emotional in Karnataka Assembly over an audio CD on the cash-for-MLC seat controversy involving him, JDS leader and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy today offered to face any probe into the issue.
Former Karnataka chief minister and Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy won from the Ramanagaram assembly constituency on Wednesday but his wife lost the poll to the Samajwadi Party (SP) nominee.
JDS headed by former prime minister H D Devegowda Friday announced its first list of 122 candidates for the May 5 Karnataka Assembly elections which also included one of his sons and a daughter-in-law.
People are reacting in various ways to Karnataka Chief Minister Yeddyurappa`s challenge to his predecessor Kumaraswamy to repeat before a deity his claim that the chief minister had tried to "buy" his silence over graft charges.
