Mangaluru, Feb 11, 2020: State Planning Board deputy chairman and B.S. Yediyurappa-loyalist B.J. Puttaswamy on Monday charged former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy and his elder brother H.D. Revanna with “swindling public money without authorisation by the legislature.”
Speaking to reporters here, Mr. Puttaswamy said Mr. Kumaraswamy had been levelling baseless allegations against Mr. Yediyurappa who is struggling to bring the economy back on track. He alleged that Mr. Kumaraswamy and Mr. Revanna sanctioned works worth over Rs. 55,000 crore in the PWD without sanction from the legislature or the Finance Department. The present government was struggling to settle the bills, he said.
