PIL against non-local MLAs as BDA, BIAAPA chiefs

 

The High Court of Karnataka has issued a  notice to the  state government on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) petition against appointing the chairpersons of the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) and the  Bangalore Airport Area Planning Authority (BIAAPA).  

 

Justice A S Bopanna ordered the notices on the petition filed  by V Shashidhar, the president of Akhila Karnataka Police Mahasangha, and  posted the matter for next hearing to January 16.

The petitioner challenged the appointment of Periyapatna MLA, K Venkatesh, as BDA chairman and Hoskote MLA, M T B Nagaraj, as BIAAPA chairman.

He argued that rules allowed only local MLAs to be considered for such posts.
