CM intervened

Poet and nominated member in the Council Doddarange Gowda had to face severe criticism from the Opposition benches when he said corruption in administration began during the rule of Devraj Urs in the state. He was asked to pay a bribe of Rs 20,000 to become a lecturer in a government college. JD(S) M C Nanaiah, who was a minister in the Devraj Urs’
cabinet came down heavily on Gowda and said Urs was a champion of backward classes.
