Bengaluru: Dismissing the allegations made by former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi, Congress president Shivakumar said the Gokak MLA was speaking out of frustration and that he cannot respond to whatever someone speaks, and has nothing to do with it.

“He (Jarkiholi) is in frustration, may have some problem, so he is speaking…I cannot answer to whatever he speaks. There is law, there are officials, let the investigation happen. I have nothing to do with it,” he said.

The Congress leader said the government should investigate and punish the guilty.

On a parent’s allegation about him playing politics using their daughter, he said, “I don’t need it, I don’t know. I have not met her (woman), no one has come to me…”

Shivakumar earlier in the day too had clarified that he had never met the woman.

The woman in a video statement released earlier in the day, her fourth, had sought protection for her family.

A day after news channels aired videos of the alleged sex scandal, Jarkiholi, who was Water Resources Minister in Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa-led cabinet, had resigned on March 3.

Jarkiholi has repeatedly claimed that he was innocent and that the video was “fake”.
