Former minister and JD(S) MLA G. T. Deve Gowda made serious allegations against the Siddaramaiah government on Wednesday, accusing it of demanding a 60 per cent commission for granting tenders.


Addressing reporters, Gowda claimed, “There is an unwritten rule that CM Siddaramaiah’s son Yathindra should also be given a commission. As the MLA from the Chamundeshwari constituency, I have observed that all officers are appointed according to Yathindra’s preferences. There seems to be a transfer lobby actively operating in the state.”

Gowda’s remarks were in response to the charges by Siddaramaiah that the former has done nothing in terms of development as an MLA of the Chamundeshwari assembly constituency.

“I challenge CM Siddaramaiah. Let him resign from the MLA post of Varuna assembly segment which he represents presently, and I will also tender my resignation. Let us both contest the MLA election from the Chamundeshwari constituency. Let us see who wins from the seat,” Gowda said.

“CM Siddaramaiah does not have an idea of development. If anyone has grown in politics without carrying out development work, it is only CM Siddaramaiah. Show the development works that you (Siddraamaiah) have carried out in Chamundeshwari constituency,” Gowda said.


Siddaramaiah represented Chamundeshwari constituency earlier.

“If CM Siddaramaiah has carried out development in the constituency, let him release the white paper on it,” he said.
