Bangalore: Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj on Saturday summoned Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda to Raj Bhavan and discussed issues, including the controversial Megacity housing project promoted by Forest Minister C P Yogeshwar.

Bhardwaj brought to Gowda's notice a complaint he had received from members of Mega City Project Association, seeking a CBI probe into the affairs of the project and action against Yogeshwar, who is one of the promoters.

During discussion, Gowda briefed the Governor on the action taken on the Lokayukta report on illegal mining, official sources attached to the Chief Minister's secretariat said.

Gowda informed the Governor that about 400 officials of various departments named by Lokayukta report have been slapped show-cause notices.

The Megacity project is facing allegations of irregularities, but Yogeshwar had rejected the charges saying these were an attempt to tarnish his image.

The Governor had recently said he had no information about the project and he would initiate action if anybody complained about it.
