Kumaraswamy on `obscene videos` involving JD(S) MP: No protection for wrongdoing

In the midst of the controversy surrounding Janata Dal (Secular) sitting MP and candidate Prajwal Revanna in the alleged “obscene videos” case, his uncle and party leader HD Kumaraswamy stated that he is unconcerned about Revanna`s situation and that if he has made mistakes, he must face the legal consequences.

Kumaraswamy emphasised that distributing pen drives with the claimed films is also a serious violation because it tarnishes women`s reputations, reported ANI. 

“The government has already announced the formation of SIT. Now, it is the responsibility of the government and the SIT. I am not bothered about Prajwal Revanna, if he has made any mistake, then according to the law, he has to face it. If he has done anything illegally, then he has to face it. That is my demand. I don`t want to protect him as our family member. Regarding the circulation of these pen drives, who has done it? That is also a severe offence. It is the responsibility of SIT to find out who is responsible for circulating these pen drives and for assassinating the character of some innocent women. They have circulated those pen drives to finish our alliance and reduce our winning chances. It is not going to affect the election of candidates,” he told ANI. 

According to the report, Kumaraswamy alleged that just before the Lok Sabha Elections 2024, opposition leaders colluded to circulate the pen drives because they knew they couldn`t win the Hassan seat.

“Three days before going to the polls, some sections of our opposition groups, particularly some Congress leaders, including one BJP leader, colluded. On the Hassan seat, 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. They tried to malign him, Dewegowda and our family. They wanted to destroy our image. For that reason, they misused the power of the government. One of the ministers, particularly that senior minister, is in the background of this with some BJP leaders in Hassan. Let us see and wait for the results from the SIT,” Kumaraswamy told ANI.

Regarding Congress leader Priyank Kharge`s statement accusing the BJP of helping Prajwal Revanna flee the country, Kumaraswamy further told ANI, “I, myself, even don`t know about it. He is a grown boy and he went without giving any information. If this government fails to bring him back, then we will take the responsibility. Why are they blaming the BJP and PM Modi? We will not run away and we are ready to face everything. We request the concerned authorities take the necessary actions if he is wrong,”
