Land allotments again haunt Yeddyurappa

Monday July 04, 2011 08:47:42 PM, IANS

Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa Monday said he had allotted residential plots in Mysore to four of his relatives on "compassionate grounds".

The chief minister's acknowledgement came a day after the Janata Dal-Secular accused him of allotting 10 residential plots in Mysore, about 130 km from here, "violating all rules".

Yeddyurappa denied any illegality in the allotment of plots, developed by the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA), from his discretionary quota.

He said of the 10 people, only four were his relatives. "I do not know the other six. They are not related to me," he told reporters here.

"I have asked the Mysore deputy commissioner to send a report on the other six," he said.

The chief minister had landed in a major row last year when it became public that he had allotted prime residential and commercial lands in and around Bangalore to his sons, daughter, sister and her daughter and son-in-law.

One of his sons, B.Y. Raghavendra, is a Bharatiaya Janata Party Lok Sabha member form Karnataka.

Yeddyurappa made his relatives surrender the lands as the controversy embarrassed BJP at the height of its battle with central government over 2G spectrum allotment and CWG scandals.
