Revanna suspended
JD(S) on Tuesday suspended its Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna from the party with immediate effect over an alleged sex scandal involving him. The suspension came minutes after the party core committee that met in Hubballi recommended his suspension to its national president and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, who is also Revanna’s grandfather. “Videos of Hassan MP Prajwal Revanna allegedly harassing women are widely in circulation on social media and media and this has caused huge embarrassment to the party and its leadership,” the suspension order said. Stating that Congress Government in Karnataka has constituted a Special Investigation Team to investigate this, it said, “Against this backdrop, as per JD(S)’ party constitution and rules regarding breach of discipline and punishment, Prajwal Revanna has been suspended with immediate effect.”
The suspension order, signed by party General Secretary K R Shivakumar, was released to the media following approval from the Janata Dal(S) national President. The core committee meeting was attended by State JD(S) President H D Kumaraswamy and other members.
