Know why this CM orders his sons not to do business during his rule!

Bengaluru: Worried over nepotism charges, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has ordered his sons not to do business during his reign.

"No doing any business till I am in power," TOI quoted the CM as saying.

The diktat comes after allegation that a government tender was given to Matrix Imaging Solutions Pt Ltd., which the CM's second son Yathindra is a director.

Matrix Imaging is a diagnostic laboratories chain.

Siddaramaiah's detractors charged him of abusing his office to award the tender, and have lodged a complaint with the anti-corruption bureau.

The report said that Siddaramaiah reacting to a poser on why Yathindra quit Matrix Imaging if he had done no wrong, said: "I advised my son to quit. It was not because that he had violated rules but because I did not want him to be doing business in any company till the time I am in power."

However, defending the award of the said tender to Matix Solutions, he said: "My son is a doctor. He is a professional. He is a member of Matrix and they had participated in the tender called by the government and emerged as L1 (lowest bidder). Where is the question of violation in this case?"
