Dakshina Kannada: Youth Congress leader demands arrest of Ramesh Jarkiholi | Mangaluru News – Times of India

MANGALURU: Mithun Rai, former president of the Dakshina Kannada District Youth Congress, demanded that former minister Ramesh Jarkiholi should be arrested immediately.
He told reporters here on Sunday that protest will be held in front of Cubbon Park Police Station in Bengaluru from Monday demanding the arrest of BJP MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi. “We will hold protest till the SIT arrests Jarkiholi in connection with the sleaze CD case. They are unnecessarily making effort to drag KPCC president D K Shivakumar’s name in the case. Whole world knows who the accused in the sleaze CD case is. The SIT should immediately arrest Jarkiholi, who is hatching conspiracy to derail the investigation,” Rai said.
Shivakumar’s name is being dragged in the CD case in the wake of bye-election in the state, he said. “The woman has already stated that her parents are in Jarkiholi’s custody and she has sought help. Hence, the statement of woman is important here,” Rai said.
On the use of expletive by Jarkiholi against Shivakumar, Rai said, the instance demonstrates BJP leader’s culture. It was Jarkiholi who betrayed the Congress, he said.
“We have trust in chief minister B S Yediyurappa. Hence, we urge the chief minister to expel jarkiholi from the party. Their own party members have tweeted against Jarkiholi. The woman should be allowed to give her statements before the magistrate,” he said.
Further, he added that the Congress will reciprocate appropriately if Jarkiholi’s men prevent Shivakumar from campaigning for bye-election in Belagavi.
