Land allotment: CM rubbishes charges

 Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has rubbished the allegations levelled by BJP leader and ex-MLC B J Puttaswamy and said that he would ask his son Dr Yathindra to file a defamation case against Puttaswamy.

Speaking to reporters at the Mysore Airport at Mandakalli near here on Saturday, he said Puttaswamy’s allegation that he misused power in allotting two acres of land to Shanthala Industries at Kethamaranahalli in Bengaluru, owned by Dr Yathindra, was baseless and politically motivated.

“My son has not committed anything wrong. I have not misused power. As elections are nearing, BJP leaders are making baseless and false allegations. I will ask Yathindra to file a case against Puttaswamy. Even MP Shoba Karandlaje is levelling false allegations against me,” he said.
