CM promises BDA sites for MPs, MLAs

Intervening during a discussion in the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday, Yeddyurappa said the government was committed to sanction BDA sites to all MLAs, MLCs and MPs.
"Those legislators who do not have sites in Bangalore, just need to apply and they will be sanctioned sites," he said.

The Chief Minister was responding to a comment by JD(S) floor leader H D Revanna that his son B Y Raghavendra had been given a site in Bangalore by the government within three months of becoming a MP.  The allottee has to buy the site as per the rate fixed by the BDA. Under this out-of-turn allotment, sites located in prime localities are given.

A Manju (Cong), while welcoming the government's move, alleged that there had been disparity in the allotment of sites. While ruling party members had been allotted sites in prime localities, Opposition members had been given sites in the outskirts, he alleged.
Revanna said he had been elected to the Assembly thrice, but had never sought a BDA site. Labour Minister B N Bachegowda remarked that Revanna might have made 'Benami’ sites. An infuriated Revanna dared Bachegowda to prove his allegations. "If the allegations are true, I will stop attending the House," Revanna said.

Bill passed

The Legislative Council on Tuesday passed the The Karnataka Civil Courts (Amendment) Bill, 2009.

The Bill has made amendments to the term Civil Judge (junior and senior division) in accordance to a request made by the National Judicial Pay Commission. The bill has been passed by the Assembly.
