Submitted by alvin on Sat, 2016-07-23 17:08 Mysuru: Mysore District Congress Committee Media Convener M Lakshmana said allegations of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah misleading the EC by holding back information pertaining to cases lodged against him were baseless.To counter the claims of HD Kumaraswamy and Jagadish Shettar, who had alleged that the CM had not mentioned about cases registered in 2007 in his affidavit submitted to Election Commission in 2008, Lakshman on Friday showed the affidavit copy of Siddaramaiah.Lakshman said the CM had filed his affidavit in an appropriate manner. Being an advocate, the CM filed his affidavit abiding with all norms of EC. “Since there is no charge sheet filed against CM Siddaramaiah in all eleven cases, there is no need of mentioning those cases in affidavit,” Lakshman claimed.Kumaraswamy and Shettar are misleading the people with the false allegations in order to get political mileage, he alleged.
