Second Upa Lokayukta appointed in Karnataka

Bangalore: Former Karnataka High Court judge
Chandrashekaraiah was on Saturday appointed as the second Upa
Lokayukta, official sources said.

The post had remained vacant after Justice R Gururajan
resigned on October 12 last year citing family and health
problems.
Chandrashekaraiah is likely to be sworn-in tomorrow at
Raj Bhavan, sources said.

Justice S B Majige is the present Upa Lokayukta.

However, the appointment of new Lokayukta is still
pending in the wake of a face-off between the state government
and Governor H R Bhardwaj.
Bhardwaj has refused to accept the recommendation of the
government for appointing former Kerala High Court Chief
Justice S R Bannurmath as Lokayukta in the wake of some
allegations against him relating to securing land allotment in
violation of rules.
