BJP leader and leader of the opposition in the Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar, on Tuesday, demanded Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to make public the Kempanna Commission report on denotification of land meant for Arkavathy layout.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Shettar said that the government was "suppressing" the contents of the report, as the panel had made recommendations against Siddaramaiah.

Shettar said that over 650 acres of land in Arkavathy layout had been denotified by Siddaramaiah, in violation of the Supreme Court and High Court orders.

"Though the report was submitted nearly six months ago, the report has not been made public. This is because, the panel has indicted Siddaramaiah in its report. If Siddaramaiah has nothing to hide or fear, he should release the report," said Shettar.

The Commission was established in August 2014, after the opposition BJP in both the houses of state legislature charged that Siddaramaiah was a direct beneficiary of the denotification of land. The BJP had sought a CBI€ˆprobe into the alleged irregularities.

Shettar also said that Karnataka was turning out to be like Kerala, as there was an increase in the number of "political murders" in the recent days.

He said that this was because of the active presence of outfits like Popular Front of India (PFI) and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), which were carrying out attacks against RSS and Hindu youths.

Siddaramaiah was unwilling to ban these outfits in the name of vote bank politics, added Shettar.

He also said that there was a complete failure of intelligence and the law and order situation had deteriorated. As a result, cities like Bengaluru have emerged as the 'rape' capital, he added.
