Bengaluru: Former Minister Satish Jarkiholi said that his brother and disqualified MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi toppled the coalition government and switched parties to avoid investigation by the I-T department.

Speaking on the issue Satish said that Income-Tax sleuths had raided the properties of Ramesh a few months ago, but the latter hastily defected to the BJP, fearful of getting caught in the ED net toppled the coalition government and switched parties

” To avoid investigation by the I-T department, Ramesh toppled the coalition government,” he added.

He further said “Congress leader DK Shivakumar’s arrest is politically-motivated. Attempts were being made to suppress him politically for staying with the Congress. There are Congress leaders facing similar cases but have been allowed to go scot-free as they switched over to the BJP. Cases against such Congress leaders were even closed.”
