Complaint filed against BBMP, Slum Board in Lokayukta court

Bangalore, Mar 18, 2013 (PTI):

A private complaint was today filed in the Lokayukta court against city civic body corporators and officials of Slum Development Board and MLAs, alleging irregularities in allotment of houses to slum dwellers.

In his complaint, Ramakrishna, a small time businessman and social activist alleged that Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike Corporators in collusion with Slum Development Board officials had allotted houses under JNURM to 19 slum dwellers in Chandra Layout, who had already been given possession certificates of such houses.

He charged that many persons who were not slum dwellers had also been included in the JNURM.


"This is not the case of just one slum but many slums in the city where such irregularities are being indulged in by corporators, MLAs and SDB officials", he submitted without however naming any of them.

Judge N K Sudhindra Rao posted the matter for hearing on March 22.
