Hubli: JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday
accused the Karnataka government of deceiving farmers under
the guise of industrial development and threatened to expose
its "nexus" with steel giant Posco.

"The BJP government in Karnataka is looting farmland
under the guise of industrial development by deceiving farmers
and causing huge loss to the state exchequer," he told
reporters here.

He said though the government had exercised restraint in
acquiring land in Dakshina Kannada district following protests
by locals and NGOs, in Gadag it had cared little for the
plight of agitating farmers and had acquired farmland for
Posco.
