Bangalore: In what could be seen as a counter
to Governor H R Bhardwaj`s sanction of prosecution against B S
Yeddyurappa, a complaint was today filed against four former
Karnataka Chief Ministers, including S M Krishna, before a
judicial commission set up by BJP government to probe land
scams.
Vinod, an advocate, submitted the complaint seeking a
probe into denotification of lands during the rule of Krishna,
now External Affairs Minister, H D Devegowda, his son H D
Kumaraswamy and N Dharam Singh as Chief Ministers.

The 630-page complaint, filed before Justice B Padmaraj
Commission of inquiry, lists denotification of land allotments
during the four former Chief Ministers.

Karnataka government has ordered a probe into land
allotments and denotification by BDA and KIADB from 1995 to
November 2010.

Devegowda was the Chief Minister between 1994-1996, Krishna
from 1999-2004, Dharam Singh 2004-06 and Kumaraswamy led the
JDS-BJP coalition between 2006 to 2007.
Yeddyurappa was the Deputy Chief Minister in JD(S)-BJP
coalition government.
