Ex-PM Deve Gowda trashes son's claim of bribe offer

Karnataka,Politics, Thu, 29 Mar 2012 IANS

Bangalore, March 29 (IANS) Former prime minister H.D. Deve Gowda Thursday rubbished claims by his son and former Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy that he and his father had been offered bribes for defence deals.


Within hours of Kumaraswamy's claim here of middlemen approaching him and his father with bribes, Gowda, who was prime minister during 1996-97, told reporters that "nobody had approached him".


On his son's claim at a press meet, he said he did not know why he had made them.


Kumaraswamy, while making the claim, declined to give details of who sought to bribe him and for which deal and how much bribe was offered.


On why he was revealing this information now, Kumaraswamy said he was provoked into making it public following Army chief General V. K. Singh's claim that he was offered Rs.14 crore for permitting the purchase of sub-standard vehicles for the Indian Army.
