Modi misused ED to poach Anand Singh from Congress – Kumaraswamy


Bengaluru, May 17 (DHNS): Soon after BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the chief minister, JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy charged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was misusing constitutional institutions to target the JD(S) and Congress MLA elects.

Speaking to reporters outside Vidhana Soudha on Thursday morning, Kumaraswamy said that Modi had misused the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to "threaten" and "poach" Vijayanagara Congress MLA elect Anand Singh.

Kumaraswamy said that Singh had told a Congress leader that he will be "screwed" if he doesn't switch over to the BJP.

"Singh has told a Congress leader that they (BJP) would screw him if he doesn't switch over to the BJP. Singh apparently said that there is a case against him in the ED, and that the BJP had threatened to use it against him. The Congress leader narrated the entire conversation to me," said Kumaraswamy.


Anand Singh

Condemning Modi for ‘misusing’ his office, Kumaraswamy gave a call to all the opposition parties in the country to come together to oppose the BJP.

"Modi wants to demolish the democracy in the country. The Modi-Shah combine is out to sell the country and the state of Karnataka. MLA elects are being flown to New Delhi in chartered flights at 4 am. If this is not horse trading, then what is this? The BJP is threatening and putting pressure on the Congress and JD(S) elected representatives. I call on all the opposition parties to come together," he added.

Kumaraswamy also said that his father and JD(S) supremo B D Deve Gowda would take the lead in bringing together the regional parties in the country to fight the BJP.

He said that the JD(S) would reach out to national leaders like West Bengal Chief Minister Mamatha Banerjee, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, Odisha Chief Minister Hamm Patnaik and BSP supremo Mayawati to come together and ‘protect’ the interest of the country.

Kumaraswamy also charged that Governor Vajubhai Vala's decision to invite Yeddyurappa to form the government was "unconstitutional".

Big loss to Cong-JD(S) combine

With Singh's defection to BJP, the number of the JD(S)-Congress combine has come down to 116. The parties that have staked claim to form the government had submitted a list to the Governor stating that they had the support of 117 MLAs.

Who is Singh?

Singh was once a close associate of the Ballari Reddy brothers. A former BJP leader, Singh too is facing illegal mining charges. After having distanced himself from the Reddy brothers, he had joined the Congress, ahead of the assembly polls.

    Feku playing one-sided harassment techniques by getting ED and IT on non-BJP fellows. Meanwhile Amit Shah son is worth 7000 crores and no ED on him. No ED on Reddy brothers... This is called bullying like how some students do in school.

    Note my words "this Gujarati and Marwari people are pure business minded and for money and profit they can do anything, they start multiple firm to avoid tax and if they get benefit from government for particular business for example 10 years tax break , and before 10 year completing they change firm name and director and start with new firm exactly in same place or location bribing government official and get another 10 years tax break.If you consider this all firms and organisations cheating government billions of money and this all thing they know in their circle. Now this people start fool us in the name of religion, black money, congress rule 60 years, all blunder. Please wake up otherwise our south India will control by this people , and we wonder how this happened. And all bhakts remember religion doesn't give food..avoid foolishness like everywhere Modi..Modi..become smart and work hard, and dont be slave under this fake people.

    What kind of poaching is this. There are too many cases against BJP leaders and BJP cannot take action against them. Now again they misused the ED to poach Anand Singh from Congress. These people will go to any extent to come in power - sitting and harassing the people of this country. Mr.Singh don't you believe in God? Be honest and if found guilty, face the law. Atleast by this, you are proving a good citizen of this country. God will bless you.
