K’taka Vidhana Parishad Dy Chairman SL Dharme Gowda commits suicide; Body found on railway track

Chikkamagaluru: In a shocking incident, Karnataka Vidhana Parishad Deputy Chairman SL Dharme Gowda was found on a railway track near Kadur in Chikkamagaluru.

Reportedly, a suicide note has been recovered. The development comes as a shocker to the JDS leaders.

64-year-old JDS leader left his home last night and his family was worried about his whereabouts.

Gowda was in the news recently after the main opposition Congress members manhandled him in the Upper House for trying to chair the session illegally.

He was dragged from the chair (the seat of the Chairman) by some Congress members alleging he had joined hands with the ruling BJP to unconstitutionally unseat the Upper House Chairman Pratap Chandra Shetty, who is from the Congress.

The BJP has moved a no-confidence motion against the Chairman and the voting on the no-confidence motion is yet to take place in the Upper House.

The BJP has made it a big issue demanding the suspension of some Congress MLCs and the dismissal of the Chairman for the ruckus.

Dharme Gowda’s death is likely to kick up some storm in Karnataka politics, putting Congress in the dock. His brother SL Bhoje Gowda is also an MLC and a close confidante of former Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy.
