Inquire into land denotification since 1999: BSY

Former chief minister and KJP leader B S Yeddyurappa on Friday urged the State government to set up a commission of inquiry to probe land denotification and ‘G’ category site allotment issues and allow a debate on the Karnataka Lokayukta report on illegal mining in the House so that people know the truth.

Speaking on the motion of thanks to the Governor’s address to the joint session in the Assembly, he said land denotification and ‘G’ category site allotments done since 1999 should be probed. 

“People should know the truth as to what happened over the years,” he stated, claiming that he became a victim of political conspiracy.

The government should table the Lokayukta report on illegal mining in the House and allow a debate. 

“I was the only person in the history of independent India to be sent to jail before a probe could be conducted. Such things do not happen even in Pakistan. I, as the chief minister, ordered Lokayukta probe into illegal mining. But, ironically, I was sent to jail,” Yeddyurappa said.

He accused Governor H R Bhardwaj of successfully accomplishing his task of dislodging him as the chief minister. “He (the Governor)  appears to have accomplished his task. Now, he can leave the State with contentment,” he said.

“Revenge” politics

In the Legislative Council, Leader of the Opposition D V Sadananda Gowda said the new government, in the past few weeks, had started indulging in “revenge” politics through their statements and policy decisions. He said there had been incidents in the State where several of the BJP offices have been targeted by miscreants at the behest of people working with the Congress party.
