Evasive reply on mines scandal

 
The Chief Minister who visited Bijapur to campaign for BJP candidates in the ensuing election to the Legislative Council, was addressing media this morning.

To repeated questions about the policy of the State Government about the charges of illegalities against mining barons from Bellary who are his Cabinet colleagues, the CM kept repeating that he had not sanctioned a single mining licence during his tenure and that if there was a problem it was to be blamed on the previous governments and the Governor's Rule in the State.

When pointed out that the a committee appointed by the Andhra Pradesh government had charged the Obulapuram Mining Company owned by the Reddy brothers had moved the boundary pillars between Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, all Yeddyurappa could say was that the Lokayukta had investigated the case and had submitted a report, which was being studied.

He said that the Lokayukta would conduct another probe into the matter and hence the Government had no reason to interfere.
