” Someone’s tax money, Deve Gowda’s grandchildren are having fun,” BJP said in a tweet in Kannada.
“Super CM Sri.H D Revannas son uses govt (sic) cars for personal use. A classic example of what dynasty rule can do to any state. These acts by former PM Sri.Deve Gowdas family members is an insult to the tax payers,” it said.
Reports suggest that the incident happened at Deve Gowdas parliamentary constituency of Hassan, where Prajwal met party workers.
While Prajwal doesn’t hold any government position, his father H D Revanna, Gowda’s elder son and senior JDS leader, is PWD and Hassan district in-charge Minister.
Gowda had recently given clear indication about Prajwal contesting the Lok Sabha polls from Hassan, the JD(S) bastion that he has been representing.
His candidature will mark the entry of third generation of the Gowda family into electoral politics with both his father and uncle- Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy- already at the helm of states political affairs.PTI KSU
