Governor urged to stop sale of NGEF land

By Our Special Correspondent

BANGALORE, APRIL 13. The former Union Minister and Janata Dal (S) candidate from the Bangalore North Lok Sabha Constituency, C.M. Ibrahim, has urged the Governor, T.N. Chaturvedi, to stop the State public sector unit, New Government Electrical Factory Ltd. (NGEF), from selling its vacant land to a private land developer.

Participating in a "meet-the-press" programme of the Press Club of Bangalore on Tuesday, Mr. Ibrahim said he was greatly concerned over the ``moves'' by the S.M. Krishna Government as the NGEF was situated in the constituency from which he was seeking election. A "caretaker" Government could not take such important decisions as alienating the land belonging to a public sector unit. The Governor should seize the records pertaining to the land deal, he said.

Mr. Ibrahim, who was the Minister for Information and Broadcasting and Civil Aviation in the Deve Gowda Government at the Centre, also demanded an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation into the land deal.
