'Centre will act on Karna min-promoted project'



Bangalore: The Centre would take action on the report of the Corporate Affairs Ministry over the alleged irregularities in the Mega City Project promoted by Karnataka Minister for Forest C P Yogeshwar, Union Corporate Affairs Minister M Veerappa Moily said on Wednesday.

"The Corporate Affairs ministry that went into the issue has submitted a report to the government. The government will take appropriate action on it", he told reporters here.

He, however, did not give details of the recommendations made by his ministry over alleged cheating of people by the Mega City project promoter promising residential sites.

On the resignation of Karnataka Lokayukta Shivaraj Patil, he said it was unfortunate that he had to quit under controversial circumstances.

Patil quit on Monday after controversy surfaced over two residential plots secured by him and his wife in alleged violation of rules, but dubbed the charges as 'malicious campaign'.

Moily said if the ruling BJP did not use its money and muscle power, the Congress would win the Koppal bye-election slated for September 26.
