Bangalore: BS Yeddyurappa’s tough times are back again as the special Lokayukta Court on Thursday ordered the police to probe a land scam involving the Karnataka Chief Minister and his family members.
The case pertains to the denotification of land at Rachenahalli in Bangalore flouting all rules. The court is hearing cases related to 15 alleged land scams.
The two lawyers, Siranjan Basha and KN Balaraj, had moved the court after getting sanction from Governor HR Bhardwaj two months ago.
Faced with simmering discontent against his leadership, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa today convened a meeting with ministers seeking to assert himself even as a team of dissidents left for New Delhi gunning for him.
Twenty-one of the total 27 Ministers attended the "conclave" held at Chief Minister`s home-office "Krishna" as Yeddyurappa appeared to send a strong message and demonstrate his "strength".
A team of dissidents, led by BJP state president KS Eshwarappa, left for Delhi today to "complain" to the party`s central leadership against Yeddyurappa.
The meeting was called to discuss the programmes announced in the state Budget and issues related to it but its timing didn`t go unnoticed as the Chief Minister`s camp and the dissidents seem to be engaged in brinkmanship.
