Hukkeri BJP MLA Umesh Katti has dubbed the Deve Gowda family a rowdy family. He was reacting to former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy who called him and his brother MP Ramesh Katti ‘political rowdies’.

Addressing reporters at Chikkodi town on Monday, the MLA said the Gowda family had prevented people in old Mysore from engaging in active politics and social work.

“The Gowda family is a family of back-stabbers. They used several others in politics as a ladder and discarded them after getting their work done,” Umesh alleged.

He described Congress candidate Prakash Hukkeri, who is contesting against Ramesh Katti in Chikkodi, as the most corrupt politician in the state.“Politics for him is business. He has appointed 12 personal assistants whose duty is to collect money from all departments. Hukkeri, who knows he will be defeated, is levelling false allegations against me and my brother. He is in the fray for namesake as he is not interested in winning the elections,” Umesh said.
