HD Kumaraswamy in a soup for endorsing his son outside polling booth, EC seeks video footage

Election Commission does not allow campaigning for candidates inside a polling station and if anybody is found contravening these rules, appropriate action would be taken against them by the EC.

The Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has landed himself in yet another controversy for allegedly endorsing his son outside a polling booth. Kumaraswamy held a press briefing outside a polling station Ramanagra where he attacked the central government and allusively endorsed his son Nikhil Gowda, who is contesting elections from Mandya constituency.

Considering the press briefing as a violation of the Model Code of Conduct, the Election Commission has taken the cognisance of the alleged violation and sought video footage of Kumaraswamy’s remarks.

While addressing the media, HD Kumaraswamy urged voters to come out in huge numbers to cast their votes. He also claimed that he is confident of JDS-Congress alliance in Karnataka winning 10-12 seats out of the total 14 Lok Sabha seats.

Defending Dynasty politics, HD Kumaraswamy asserted that it is because of dynasties that India has witnessed progress. HD Kumaraswamy, who’s son Nikhil Gowda is fighting the Lok Sabha elections this time further added that he is bothered about the criticism of dynasty politics from the BJP.

JDS president HD Deve Gowda in Hassan’s Paduvalahippe endorsed both his grandsons Nikhil Gowda and HD Revanna who are contesting elections from Mandya and Hassan respectively and declaimed that he fully expects that both of them will be victorious from their respective constituencies.
