Bengaluru: Lashing out at former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy for his remarks on BJP using money from cricket betting and from drug dealing to topple his government, tourism minister CT Ravi said that the former CM should be subjected to tests as “he may be under the influence of drugs”.
Reminding Kumaraswamy that when he was in power, he had the intelligence department under him, Ravi said, if his allegations are true, the former CM could have prevented it.
He further added that many of the ministers and party leaders left due to “incompetence and dissatisfaction”.
