Didn’t misuse power against mining baron G Janardhana Reddy says Karnataka CM

Vastavam web: Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy Wednesday said his government has not indulged in “hate politics” or misused power against mining baron G Janardhana Reddy arrested in connection with a multi-crore ponzi scam case. Reddy, a former Karnataka minister, had alleged “political conspiracy” against him. “Developments are taking place in the court with regard to this case. Neither I nor my government or officials have indulged in hate politics or misused (power) in this issue. I’m saying this very clearly,” Kumaraswamy told reporters here. A Metropolitan Magistrate court had subsequently remanded him to judicial custody till November 24. The CCB had launched a hunt for Reddy last week in connection with a transaction of crores of rupees, allegedly linked to a ponzi scheme.
