Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister B S
Yeddyurappa today said that an empowered committee headed by
the Chief Secretary will review the progress of the Bangalore
Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project, instead of the
high power committee headed by him.
"This decision was taken at today`s meeting and the same
will be informed to the Supreme Court by our legal counsels
before June 29," he told reporters after a high-level meeting
on the issue.
The Supreme Court in a decision on a contempt petition on
BMIC earlier this year had instructed the Karnataka government
to constitute a high-level committee to review the progress of
the project and inform the court.
Today`s meeting reviewed the progress made in the BMIC
project after the last meeting.
To a question as to why farmers were not invited for the
meeting as per the Supreme Court directions, Yeddyurappa
evaded the question saying he would not like to comment more
than what he had said.
