JDS leader H D Kumaraswamy coming out after offering prayers at the temple of Lord Manjunatha in Bengaluru - PTI.
Former Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy on Saturday begins a fast-unto-death for a probe to determine if his family's Rs.1,500 crore assets were legally acquired or not.
Kumaraswamy is the son of former prime minister H.D. Deve Gowda, who was contractor for civil works for the state's Public Works Department (PWD) before joining politics in 1953 as Congress party member.
The Gowda family of four sons and two daughters is accused by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of 'amassing assets now valued at Rs.1,500 crore by illegal means'.
The assets, listed in a booklet made public by BJP on June 28 here, include land, commercial and residential properties and several companies run by the family members - mainly by the sons and daughters-in-law.
The booklet, "Amassing wealth by corrupt practices: A tell-tale story of H.D. Kumaraswamy and family", was released to counter his charges against Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa.
Gowda, who heads the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S), and Kumaraswamy, JD-S state president, have not contested the details of the properties listed in the booklet. They are only saying that "all these are legally acquired".
Immediately after the release of the booklet, the father-son combine dared Yeddyurappa to seek a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe to find out whether the assets were illegally acquired.
