Bommai denies graft charge in Upper Bhadra

“The project cost was fixed and it was awarded as per recommendation of  Tender Scrutiny Committee (TSC) of the Karnataka Neeravari Nigam Limited. The Rs 5,985-crore revised Detailed Project Report was approved by the Nigam. The work on package-2 of the project was awarded to R N Shetty-Jyothi joint venture and only on the recommendation of the TSC,” Bommai said at a press meet.

The Lokayukta police, on a private complaint by JD(S) spokesperson YSV Datta, have registered a FIR against Yeddyurappa on charges of financial irregularities while awarding the contract.

Bommai said the TSC was an independent body with experts and its recommendations had been implemented in full. There was no interference by the government, he claimed.
