Government trying to keep Lokayukta post vacant: Shettar

 Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Jagadish Shettar on Thursday charged that the government was purposely trying to keep the post of the Lokayukta vacant.

He told mediapersons here that the government did not want to appoint anybody to the post.

As the post of Lokayukta is vacant for the past one year, many complaints have not been attended to. The chief minister is not in favour of disposing those complaints. Hence, he recommended the name of Justice Vishwanath Shetty against whom there are some charges.

The chief minister should again call a meeting of the committee concerned to discuss the appointment of Lokayukta, Shettar said. Issues like arrest of MLA Raju Kage and Sangolli Rayanna Brigade would be discussed in the BJP core committee meeting to be held in Kalaburagi on Friday, he added.
