However, Gowda later clarified that he had been misquoted and never mentioned of scrapping Section 377. “I have ben totally misquoted. When I was asked about the judgment that was given by the US court, I said that it is not an easy task in our country. So, we have no idea of scrapping or doing anything about [Section] 377,” Gowda said in an interview to a news agency.
