‘State refused land for Central projects'

Special Correspondent

Bangalore: Union Minister for Labour M. Mallikarjun Kharge has alleged that Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurapa has allocated large tracts of Government land to his family members and others but refused to give lands for the Union Government's projects, including for the development of human resources at Gulbarga and elsewhere.

Speaking at the launch of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee's Nadarakshana Rally with the slogan “Oust BJP-Save Karnataka” here on Sunday, he said that Mr. Yeddyurappa and the Bharatiya Janata Party Government had proved themselves corrupt and lost their moral and ethical right to continue in office.

Although the Centre had given handsome funds for the cause of development, the BJP Government had been making false charges against the UPA Government. The Union Ministry of Labour had released over Rs. 2,000 crore for development works but the State Government had not utilised properly barring for the three new ESI hospitals that would be inaugurated at Hubli, Bangalore and Mysore shortly.

Referring to the Justice Somasekhara Commission's Report, Mr. Kharge said it was a tailor-made and the Commission should define its observations on its usage of the term fundamentalist without ambiguities.

He demanded that the entire episode pertaining to the attacks on churches be referred to the CBI.

Public awareness

Union Minister of State for Railways K.H. Muniyappa said the purpose of the rally was to create public awareness about the misdeeds of Mr. Yeddyurappa and his Government.

The State Government had not only forfeited its right to run the Government but also “profaned the dignity” of the State. Therefore it should be ousted at the earliest.
