BANGALORE: Former BBMP commissioner Siddaiah, following the Lokayukta raid on his house, has charged that the investigation agency has done character assassination by presenting baseless charges against him.

In a letter to Chief Secretary S V Ranganath, Siddaiah  complained that the investigation officers of the Lokayukta have presented a glorified accounts to the public. Seeking a clarification, Siddaiah stated he doesn’t own 120 acres of land and  residential property at Jayanagar as claimed by the Lokayukta police.

Alleging that the Lokayukta  was working to  distort his image,  he informed he has written a letter to the chief secretary to unfold the truth. “Reports presented before the media have won a wide publication. While the police clandestinely remained silent on the liabilities, glorified facts were given about the assets, which was gained during my service.”

The residential property in Jayanagar, allegedly assigned in his name belongs to Uma Basavaraj, sister of former chief minister J H Patel. In his letter, Siddaiah  stated that his family’s net worth stood at `1.56 crore.
