Bangarappa, Gowda key to Dandavathi fiasco: CM

The tribunal, in its judgment on a petition filed by Andhra Pradesh project, directed Karnataka government to stop the project until the tribunal gives its final verdict.

Speaking to press persons in Bangalore, the chief minister said this was probably the first time Andhra Pradesh government objected to a project in Karnataka.

“Deve Gowda and Bangarappa must have succeeded in their effort temporarily. But the government is committed to implement the project. The final verdict is expected to be out in two-three months. Later the project will be implemented”, he said. Reacting, Gowda said Yeddyurappa’s allegation demonstrated his political immaturity. “The tribunal asked the government to stop the project after it found wrong-doing by the State Government. The CM is under an impression that whatever he does is right”, he said.

The Chief Minister said construction of houses for flood victims had been in progress in most of the areas. Around 60 per cent of works would be completed by the end of May. The Land Army corporation and the Housing Board have taken up construction of 20,000 houses each.
