Bangalore: Making fresh allegations against the
BJP government in Karnataka led by Chief Minister B S
Yeddyurappa, former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy Wednesday
charged that about Rs 11 crore had been paid to a firm for
constructing Raitha Samparka Kendras, which were never built.
Talking to reporters here, he alleged that the government
had released Rs 9.37 crore to the contractor M/s BSR Infratech
India Ltd on March 15 and another Rs 2.87 crore on March 22,
though the work had not even begun.
The government had earmarked Rs 25 crore in the 2010-11
budget for the construction of Raitha Samparka Kendras
(Farmer`s Interaction Center) at 100 places in nine districts
The JDS leader demanded an inquiry and action against M/s
BSR Infratech India Ltd and officials of agriculture
department, who were responsible for release of funds.
Kumaraswamy, who has been hurling allegations of corruption
against Yeddyurappa, challenged him to participate in the rally
being organised by civil society members at Shimoga on May
nine against corruption and offer his explanations over
development works the government has initiated.
"The Chief Minister claims to have done a lot of
development works in the state. I invite him to attend the
rally and present what he has done. We will reveal the rampant
corruption his government has indulged in. Let all this happen
in the presence of pontiffs of mutts", he urged.
Responding to the allegations by Yeddyurappa that files
pertaining to irregularities committed during Kumaraswamy’s
tenure as Chief Minister were missing, he said "let the Chief
Minister himself come and search our houses".
