BANGALORE: Daring the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to order a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into allegations of accumulation of wealth (totalling to Rs. 1,500 crore) during his and his son's tenure as Chief Minister, the former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda said: “Let Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa, in turn, hand over all allegations levelled against him in the last few months to the CBI.” “If he offers himself to a CBI probe, I will bow down to him,” he added, while addressing presspersons here on Wednesday.
Seeking an explanation on the reason behind Mr. Yeddyurappa getting a stay order against the permission given by the Governor for probe on charges against him, he said, let the Chief Minister vacate the stay and offer himself for the probe.
Meanwhile, the former IAS officer, Subrahmanya, took over as in-charge of JD(S) office in the city on Wednesday. Mr. Deve Gowda said Mr. Subrahmanya would advise party leaders on issues pertaining to administration.
The former Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) Legislature Party leader H.D. Revanna also challenged the B.S. Yeddyurappa Government to order a probe and seize all ‘illegal' properties acquired by the family of the former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda.
Reacting to the ‘charge sheet' released by the BJP, Mr. Revanna told presspersons that he and other family members were ready to face any type of probe, including one headed by Opposition Leader in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and the former Deputy Prime Minister and BJP leader L.K. Advani. The ‘charge sheet' released by the BJP has no documents to substantiate charges, he said.
