Karnataka water resource minister Ramesh Jarkiholi resigns after sex CD scandal in the BS Yediyurappa-led BJP government after charges of sexual harassment were brought against him.
In his resignation letter, Jarkiholi has said, “Allegations against me are far from the truth. A clear investigation is needed. I’ll come out as innocent and I’m confident about it. I’m resigning on moral grounds and I request you to accept this. Ramesh Jarkiholi’s resignation has been accepted by Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa and sent to the Governor for approval.
Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi has been accused of sexually exploiting a woman who sought the minister’s help for a short film. The allegations have been brought by Dinesh Kalahalli, a social activist, who released a video, screenshots and a telephonic conversation, allegedly between the minister and the woman.
