Yeddyurappa apologises to Deshpande, Jalappa

Special Correspondent


Government to hold meets to highlight its achievements

Yeddyurappa to stay in district headquarters


BANGALORE: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Thursday tendered an apology to Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president R.V. Deshpande and the former MP R.L. Jalappa for mentioning their names as being involved in illegal mining in the State during his reply in the Legislative Council.

To counter the Opposition's charge over illegal mining, the government would hold conventions in all districts to keep the people informed about the achievements of the Government, Mr. Yeddyurappa told presspersons here.

The Chief Minister said he would stay in district headquarters for three days every month and review the performance of government schemes. A public function would be organised in each district to create awareness among the people about the work done by the Bharatiya Janata Party Government. To collect information about problems faced by farmers, he would spend a night in a farmer's house in a village of Tumkur district soon, he said.

Referring to a padayatra planned from Bellary to Mysore by Minister for Health B. Sriramulu, the Chief Minister said: “We will collectively launch a campaign against the Opposition and inform the people about the Opposition's role in derailing the State legislature session.”

Mr. Yeddyurappa said: “I am saddened by the developments” and appealed to the Opposition to cooperate with the Government in conducting the legislature session.

The Chief Minister ruled out ordering a CBI probe into illegal mining and export of iron ore from the State. There was no substance in the demand made by the Opposition and the Karnataka Lokayukta would conduct the probe into illegal mining, he said.
