'Return and face probe', JD(S) leader Nikhil Kumaraswamy appeals to fugitive cousin Prajwal Revanna

Bengaluru, May 23 (IANS): JD-S youth wing President Nikhil Kumaraswamy on Thursday appealed to his cousin and absconding JD-S MP Prajwal Revanna, the prime accused in the sex video scandal in Karnataka, to return from wherever he is and face the probe.

Speaking to the media, actor-turned-politician Nikhil, the son of former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, said, “If allegations are levelled, we need to face them. In this context, the Hassan MP (Prajwal Revanna) should return to the country from wherever he is and face the probe.”

Earlier, JD-S state President Kumaraswamy had twice appealed to Prajwal Revanna through the media to return to the country and appear before the SIT if he had any respect for him and former PM H.D. Deve Gowda, the accused's grandfather.

Nikhil also said that everyone in the state is talking about the Deve Gowda family being targeted in the sex video scandal.

JD-S MLA H.D. Revanna (the father of Prajwal Revanna), has also been targeted and sent to jail, he claimed.

"The people are observing all the developments. This won’t last long. Those running the government should learn to deliver fair administration," he said.

The youth wing leader also claimed that the SIT is not conducting the probe in a transparent manner.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has written a second letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking the cancellation of Prajwal Revanna’s diplomatic passport.

Commenting on the developments, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi said on Thursday that the authorities have already approached the court regarding the cancellation of Prajwal Revanna's passport, as he criticised the state for making it a political issue.

    Prajwal will be the new football. As all are aware it will be a hung assembly this time without anyone coming in majority. They would requires MPs to form a coalition Govt. So when Congress or BJP wants support from JDS to meet their numbers, the Gowda family will conditionally agree 'if their kin Prajwal is acquitted' . Thats all.

    Prajwal Revanna may return on June 4th, the counting day, so that media focus will be on election result. Otherwise from Bangalore Airport till he reaches home or SIT office, around 100 TV channels will follow him.

    Every one in Gowda, making a plea as if the guy gone missing, as if innocently framed. Modi led BJP, which bhakths believe can get wars to pause, but cant get to, that too in a country like Germany. This drama, will go on, for elections. BJP is following its Raj Dharma, as for alliance with JDS it must have assured some protection for all offenses.

    We appreciate the statement of JD-S Nikhil Kumaraswamy who appealed to his cousin and absconding JD-S MP Prajwal Revanna to return and face the probe. There's always a possibility of internal rivalry between cousins as well. Prajwal Revanna on the contrary, might be seeking protection from prosecution to return, whenever political atmosphere is in the state conducive to protect him, its safe to return.
