Yeddyurappa is scared, says Siddaramaiah

Special Correspondent


‘Speaker should have allowed Opposition demand'

Chief Minister backtracking on promise: Revanna


BANGALORE: Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah on Monday said Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa was against a discussion in the Assembly under an adjournment motion as he feared being exposed.

Speaking to presspersons after Speaker K.G. Bopaiah adjourned the House for the day without reconsidering the Opposition demand to allow a debate under the motion, Mr. Siddaramaiah said the Speaker should have allowed the Opposition to discuss the issue of corruption, which was eating into the vitals of administration and governance.

Mr. Bopaiah should have used his inherent powers rather than sit on technicalities, he added.

Mr. Yeddyurappa had admitted in the Legislative Council in July last about the theft of iron ore worth hundreds of crores from the Belikere port, and the Opposition only wanted to know whether anybody had been punished, Mr. Siddaramaiah said.

The Janata Dal (Secular) leader H.D. Revanna said that Mr. Yeddyurappa had been telling Opposition leaders that he was ready to discuss the issue of corruption on the floor of the House, but was now backtracking on his promise.
