CM writes to CJ for more courts


In a letter to the CJ, copies of which were released to the press on Tuesday, the chief minister has stressed the need for establishing courts at Bangalore and Tumkur for trying cases instituted by the Lokayukta Police.

Yeddyurappa has stated that there are three courts in the State - one each at Bangalore, Mysore and Belgaum - for exclusive trial of the corruption cases. “However, given the number of pending cases, the government is desirous of establishing one more court at Bangalore and a new court at Tumkur,” the letter stated.

The government is prepared to provide all the necessary infrastructure and financial support for establishment of the courts, Yeddyurappa has said.

IIT for State

Meanwhile, the CM has once again written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh urging the Centre to sanction an IIT to the State.

The Chief Minister has already written  three letters in this regard to the Prime Minister. The latest despatch comes close on the heels of Union Minister of State for Human Resources Development D Purandeshwari’s statement in Bangalore that “there is a direction from the PMO that states which already have a central university should not presently get an IIT”.
