Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday hit back at the Congress-led Karnataka government for not taking any action in the sex scandal involving Karnataka MP and NDA's Hassan Lok Sabha candidate Prajwal Revanna. Prajwal Revanna, the grandson of former prime minister HD Deve Gowda, has been suspended from the JD(S).

While underscoring that the BJP was in favour of an investigation, Shah questioned Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi over the government's delay in taking action.

Addressing a press conference in Assam, Amit Shah said the case was a law and order issue of the state, where Congress is in power.

"BJP's stand is clear that we stand with the 'Matri Shakti' of the country. I want to ask Congress whose government is there (Karnataka)? The government is of the Congress party. Why have they not taken any action till now? Priyanka Gandhi should ask their Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister," Amit Shah said.

"We do not have to take action on this as this is a law and order issue of the state. The state government has to take action on it," he further said.

Amit Shah's retort came a day after Priyanka Gandhi questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Home Minister how Prajwal Revanna was able to leave the country after committing atrocities against women.

"They get to know where I or opposition leaders have gone, but this kind of criminal, this type of demon leaves the country, and they do not get to know this," Gandhi had said at a rally in Karnataka's Kalaburagi.

Prajwal Revanna was suspended from the JD(S) till a probe by the Special Investigation Team was completed. Last week, explicit clips depicting Revanna allegedly engaging in acts of sexual abuse against multiple women started doing the rounds on social media.

A woman who worked in Prajwal's household also accused the MP and his father - JD(S) MLA and former minister HD Revanna - of sexual harassment. Following the woman's complaint, a case has been registered against the duo.
