Bangalore: Calling allegations of rape, kidnap and cheating by a Kannada starlet against Railway Minister DV Sadananda Gowda's son Karthik as purely personal, Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party President Prahlad Joshi on Wednesday said that the party has nothing to feel embarrassed about it.

"...this case is between Karthik Gowda and a woman, the case is in the legal domain. There is nothing for the party to feel embarrassed about it," Joshi said.

He said "in such cases allegations and counter allegations will be on purely personal grounds. In this case it is on Sadananda Gowda's son. So there is no relationship between the party and the issue. There is no question for the party to feel embarrassed about it."

Joshi in response to a question also said that party President Amit Shah has not sought any report on the issue.

In a relief for Karthik Gowda, declared absconding, a court on Monday granted him anticipatory bail in the case, which has come as an embarrassment to Sadandanda Gowda.

The actress had claimed she and Karthik got married at Gowda's residence in Mangalore in June in the presence of the driver of Gowda's son. The starlet had made the claim about the marriage on the day Karthik got engaged to another woman at Kushalnagar in Kodagu district.

On the havoc caused by floods in Jammu and Kashmir, Joshi said the party will collect funds for victims from all district and taluk centres across the state on September 13.

A ministerial team should be sent to Jammu and Kashmir to coordinate and rescue stranded tourists from the state, he added.
