DK Shivakumar says, we’re ready for any probe into the phone-tapping scandal
Congress and JD(S) leaders have supported the coalition government, they were never involved the phone tapping and they are ready for any investigation in that matter. Leaders blamed BJP for politicizing the issue.
DK Shivakumar said, “I have come across the issue in media and made my own insures as well. I have been specifically told no such incidents occurred during our tenure. The former Home minister(R Ashoka) is trying to politicise the issue.”
“CM BS Yediyurappa helms the government. Let him initiate an investigation,” he said. In JD(S) MLA DC Thamanna and MLC Basavaraj Horratti said the phone tappings have happened in the past government didn’t initiate a probe. MLC Basavaraj said phone tapping claims by Ex-CM HD Kumaraswamy were false.
Shivakumar said “Those who are claiming the former CM intercepted phone calls must have proof and then only an inquiry should be conducted. The charges levelled against Kumaraswamy are far from the truth,” he said.
