CM seeks A-G's opinion on BMIC project

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is understood to have sought the opinion of the Advocate General on the orders of the Supreme Court on the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project.

The chief minister’s direction on Thursday comes after Ashok Kheny, Managing Director of Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Project (NICE), which is executing the project, sought his intervention in clearing the bottlenecks pertaining to acquisition of land.

Kheny is said to have made his submission at a meeting convened to monitor the progress of the project held by the chief minister. It is said there were differences of opinion between the NICE and the officials of the Public Works Department on the interpretation of the various Supreme Court orders on the project.

The chief minister felt that as there was confusion on the interpretation of the orders, it was better to get a legal opinion of the Advocate General before proceeding further. The A-G would be asked to submit his opinion in 15 days. Besides, the allegation that excess land had been allotted to the project needs to be cleared, the chief minister said.
