Bengaluru: Union minister Sadananda Gowda unhappy over six ministers who approached court


From Our Special Correspondent

Bengaluru, Mar 6: "The sex CD issue allegedly involving former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi has been taken very seriously by the BJP high command,’’ said union minister for petrochemicals D V Sadananda Gowda in Bengaluru on Saturday.

Answering questions from media persons at the KC General Hospital in Malleswaram after getting a Covid vaccine shot along with his wife Dotty, he admitted that the sex CD issue is a little embarrassing. I am not denying that.

He pointed out that CDs of different kinds have played a key role in the game of political upmanship. "The party high command took the issue very seriously and ensured that the minister tendered his resignation," he said.

The minister urged the people to get vaccinated and make the country free of the pandemic. "I opted to take the vaccine being a senior citizen. It is painless and I could not even feel the prick,’’ he said mentioning that the country was doing its best to eliminate the corona pandemic and has been exporting the vaccine even for poorer countries.

Gowda said technology has become very advanced to such an extent that anything can be manipulated.

"However, I am not saying that this (sex CD) has been manipulated. At the same time, it is our responsibility to accord primacy to morality. When the sense of morality is damaged, it weakens society and affects even the administration,’’ he said.

Replying to a specific question on former minister Jarkiholi, he said the BJP national president and the general secretary had sought details when the news broke out. "We have furnished information based on media reports. Naturally, when such allegations crop up, it is the responsibility of all persons concerned to cooperate with the probe,’’ he said.

To a question on the six ministers in the BS Yediyurappa ministry approaching court seeking injunctions against media on reporting news concerning them, the former chief minister said it is not possible to prevent the ministers from approaching courts on their grievances and seek appropriate safeguards. All individuals have to think about their future and they act accordingly.

"But it is not good to approach courts unnecessarily,’’ he quipped.

The minister said the name of the Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has cropped up in the FIR pertaining to the gold smuggling case and the main accused has disclosed the chief minister’s name. "Therefore, it is appropriate that Pinarayi Vijayan must resign owning moral responsibility even though he might claim it as an electoral conspiracy to frame him,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, forest minister C P Yogeshwar claimed that 'Kanakapura and Belagavi' (leaders) were behind the conspiracy against Jarkiholi and contended that they will reap the dividends in future for their role.

Speaking to reporters at the Aranya Bhavan in Bengaluru, he refused to comment on other issue or the steps taken by the six ministers in approaching courts. "I don’t know why they have done it and don’t drag me into this,’’ he said asking the media to find out from the ministers themselves.

    It looks like a very shrewd political game. One shot two aims. Seems outside support taken for forming Govt started back firing as oldies are rebelling. Solution used to oust new entrants to save their embarassment and party, for new entrants have nowhere to go now! They can also be threatened with legal action !

    Courts should outrightly reject these type of requests. Public life means to be ready for public scrutiny & some hazards .. (if you can’t stand the heat don’t be in the kitchen ..)..... if allowed any unscrupulous person can take protection.. Hypothetically ..If a public servant / minister is good and upright & if for some reason false allegations / framed ...by vested interests .... .public and courts would definitely protect .. If this is allowed .....A bribe taking ( or immoral ) ..minister / public servant would first go to court & get himself protected !

    They will silence the media and CD producer. The guy who has produced the CD is in danger situation may be. It is sad to reveal the truth but always truth stands out and the criminals will be behind bars and permanently banned for public office. Hope mota and chota understand the issues of sexual exploitation of women from politicians and elected officials. If yes then for sure they will take actions.
