Siddaramaiah's letter to Irani appeals for IIT in Raichur-1The complainant Ramamurthy Gowda of Bengaluru in his complaint stated that chief minister and his party MLAs have criticised the orders passed by Upalokayukta Justice Subhash B Adi saying there were allegations of corruption against Justice Adi.

There were several other allegations made by other MLAs and political leaders that the Upalokayukta had violated rules and passed orders to favour certain people. These allegations were baseless and made without having any evidence. Therefore, their claims amount to contempt, Gowda said.
