BENGALURU: Supporters of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday demanded a judicial inquiry into the assets of all the former chief ministers of the state.

Congress legislators H M Revanna, V S Ugrappa and K M Somashekhar told reporters that previous chief ministers should declare what their assets were before they assumed office and what is was after completing their term.

They demanded a probe into the assets of former CMs H D Kumraswamy, B S Yeddyurappa, D V Sadananda Gowda and Jagadish Shettar. Criticising rival party leaders of “unnecessarily dragging Siddaramaiah into the denotification muck,” Ugrappa said the chief minister had nothing to do with the Arkavathy denotification.

“It (denotification) was initiated during the JD(S)-BJP coalition government. Siddaramaiah had just followed the orders to avoid contempt of court,” Ugrappa said.

Criticising BJP’s efforts to destabilise the government, the trio alleged that Raj Bhavan is being misused. The Central government is ignoring non BJP-ruled states, Revanna alleged.
