Turning emotional in Karnataka Assembly over an audio CD on the cash-for-MLC seat controversy involving him, JDS leader and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday offered to face any probe into the issue and said he was ready to go to jail if he was guilty.
Raising the issue during the debate on revenue related matters, Kumaraswamy maintained that he had committed no crime and had only spoken about the falling standards of politics, which has landed him in a major political row.
“I am ready to face any kind of probe. I am ready to go tojail,” said an emotional Kumaraswamy who, in the CD clips played by TV channels, purportedly told supporters of MLC seat aspirant Vijugowda Patil, a JDS leader from Bijapur district, about the demand for money from his party MLAs.
