Govt to implement house committee recommendations on BMIC

PWD Minister H C Mahadevappa  on Tuesday  said the government will take an appropriate decision on implementing a joint House committee report on irregularities in the Bengaluru-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project after obtaining the law department's opinion.

Replying to Ramesh Babu of the JD(S) in the legislative council, he said many litigations regarding the project are pending in the Karnataka High Court and the Supreme Court.

The Department of Law is yet to give its opinion on the recommendations of the committee report.

The committee, which submitted its report in November last year, had recommended to the government to take over the project, besides ordering a CBI probe into the charges of irregularities.

Senior JD(S) MLC Basavaraj Horatti described the project as day-light dacoity. The committee was headed by Law Minister T B Jayachandra, and hence, there is no need for obtaining the department's opinion on the report, he argued.
