Mangalore, Dec 4: Central Administration Reform Commission Chairman M Veerappa Moily today demanded an inquiry to be conducted by Lok Ayukta into lapses and corruption occurred during the 20-month coalition rule of BJP and JD(S). Mr Moily told reporters here today that there was enough stuff of truth in the charges traded by each other parties.
All development activities during the BJP-JD(S) coalition rule have come to a total stand still, he said.
"As the coalition government had failed to deliver the goods to the people, there was a need for a stable government in the state which Congress party alone could provide and the party was also completely for that," he said.
Making scathing attack on BJP, the former Chief Minister said that unlike the Congress, the BJP was suffering lack of leadership as its party high command had let loose its leaders in the state.
The BJP had lost both leadership and discipline and the former Deputy Chief Minister B S Yadiyurappa had no leadership quality, he said adding that the BJP would not come to power in the coming election.
Mr Moily said that, on the other hand, there was high command in the Congress which takes decision on everything. It was making efforts to unite all people.
However, admitting on open efforts being made by the followers of Maharastra Governor S M Krishna to project him to lead the party in the coming election, Mr Moily said that any opinion in this regard should have been brought to the notice of the party high command before going to press though there was freedom of expressing ones opinion.
Mr Moily while replying the query on the much opposed Mangalore Special Economic Zone project, the party had no objection for MSEZ. But the interests of the farmers should not be neglected in the name of the project. MSEZ and Nandigram have no comparison and were quite two different issues. If wrong informations were provided to the land losers, it could be brought to the notice of the Deputy Commissioner who would look into it, he added.
He said that the fly-over bridges on the ongoing four laning project from Mangalore to Suratkal were expected to complete soon.
There was also a need for a separate Railway division for Mangalore, he said adding that he also stressed for the need for integration of Konkan Railway Corporation (KRC).
He said that the Rs.4.8 survey work for four laning project Byndoor- Shiroor stretch of NH 17, on the northern end of Udupi district was the sanctioning stage. The repairing work at Shirady Ghat had also been speeded up now, he said.
He said that the party had also brought to the notice of the Karnataka Governor about the pending issues of issuance of ration cards and sites/ houses to the poor.
Mr Moily said that the report on Civic Services Administration Reformation would be submitted to the Centre in February or March next. It had also planned to hold a national debate on this issue during the end of January or first week of February in New Delhi, he said.
The Commission had so for submitted six reports on reformation of various departments to the government. Out of these, three reports which have been reviewed by the government were ready for implementation.
Other two reports now were being reviewed by the concerned ministries. The Commission would submit its report on the Reformation of Urban Bodies and Panchayatraj system institutions would be submitted to the government in the next two days, he added.
