CM told to discuss backward classes reservation list

Opposition Leader in Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah addressing a press meet in  Mangalore on Friday. DH PhotoOpposition Leader in Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah has urged the Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to convene Assembly at the earliest to discuss on backward classes reservation list.

Speaking with the presspersons here on Friday, he said the constitution of sub-committee to study the High Court order on reservation for backward classes in the Zilla Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat polls will not find solution to the present decrease in the number of seats for backward classes.

In Zilla Panchayat 101 seats will be reduced and in Taluk Panchayat 482 seats will be reduced. The government should discuss on the ordinance on reservation for women in the Assembly.

The reservation should see that no injustice is meted on backward classes.
He said by returning the denotified land given to Chief Minister’s family members, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has made a confession statement directly.

“If he was not involved in nepotism and had not misused his power to distribute land to his son, daughter and grandchildren, then there was no question of returning the denotified land,” he added.

He said though the State had passed a law to hold Legislature session for 60 days a year, the session was held only for 31 days since January till date. The law which was passed by the government is being violated.

He said “Yeddyurappa does not believe in democracy and court. BJP High Command has surrendered to the blackmailing tactics of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa. Inspite of having documents on misuse of power by the CM, BJP High Command could not make him  step down. RSS which speaks of values, could not set right their own Chief Minister from going stray.”

He said “Congress will instensify its fight against the government. Yeddyurappa cannot protect the wealth of the state. The development activities have come to a standstill in the state. There is no governance in the state for the last few months. The issue of land scam will be a main issue in the Zilla Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat election,” he added.

‘Withdraw judicial probe’

Siddaramaiah urged the Chief Minister to withdraw the judicial probe into the denotified land from 1995 to 2010.

 “The probe into denotified land for 15 years was not necessary. In fact, even judicial probe was not necessary as Lokaykuta is already probing into land scam. As per Commission of Enquiries parallel enquiries cannot be held. When Lokayukta has started an enquiry into land scam what was the need to order for Judicial probe?” he asked.
 
“Moreover, judicial enquiry will not bring out the truth as the person who constituted judicial enquiry is guilty. It will take more than 10 years to complete probe on 15 years denotified land,” he added. 

He urged the Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to tender resignation on the backdrop of various allegations against him.
