BENGALURU: Bangalore Rural MP and DCM DK Shivakumar’s younger brother DK Suresh on Thursday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former prime minister HD Deve Gowda to respond to Prajwal Revanna’s alleged sexual assault case.

“The PM, who is accountable for being part of the alliance with the JDS, should reply and also guide on the next course of action,” he said, addressing the press. “Modi takes different issues of Karnataka elsewhere to dishonour the state. But why is he not talking about this issue? Prime Minister is directly responsible for this. Didn’t the Prime Minister know about the sex scandal earlier? Didn’t local BJP leaders write to him?” he questioned. He alleged that despite the Prajwal case being discussed at the screening committee to select him as NDA candidate, and Kumaraswamy opposing his candidature, the BJP gave him the ticket and campaigned.

He also urged Deve Gowda, who he said holds press conferences and writes petitions over trivial issues, to respond to accusations against his grandson. “He should interpret the proverb ‘noolinante seere’ (as saree, as yarn),” he quipped.

Replying to Kumaraswamy’s allegation that the Congress government was responsible for Prajwal’s chauffeur Karthik allegedly leaking the tapes and escaping to Malaysia, Suresh hit back, saying, “Kumaraswamy has maintained an international agency and he has all information about it. I have no information about this.”
