BANGALORE: Former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy appealed to Governor H R Bhardwaj to give remission for prisoners and effect their premature release due to good conduct. “Not a single prisoner has been released on account of good behavior ever since BJP government came to power three years ago. This may be due to the bad policies of the BJP government. But many prisoners who deserved to be freed on on the ground of good conduct, have suffered on account of this. I appeal to give your consent for their release,” he stated in his letter to the Governor, copies of which were released to the Media here on Monday.

He said it was painful to learn that the premature release of prisoners on humanitarian grounds has been projected as a confrontation between the Raj Bhavan and the government.

“I request you to ensure their release on the eve of Republic Day.”

In what could be due to oversight but yet a major faux pas, Kumaraswamy’s letter is addressed to His Excellency, Government of Karnataka, instead of Governor of Karnataka. The address says Raj Bhavan, Bangalore, but has been wrongly addressed as Government of Karnataka.
