New Delhi: Former Prime Minister H D Deve
Gowda on Thursday raised in the Lok Sabha the issue of illegal
mining in Karnataka and demanded a special discussion on the
serious issue.

Raising the issue during zero hour, Gowda said that he has
been seeking a special discussion in the House and a suitable
time should be fixed for it.

He said that he has been told that the discussion could
not be taken up as the mining minister is unwell.

The JD-S leader said that if the mining minister was not
well, the Parliamentary Affairs Minister could reply on his
behalf.

Two mine owners from Karnataka, who are Ministers in the
BJP Government there and are known as Bellary brothers, have
recently been in the eye of a storm over allegations of
illegal mining.
