Bangalore, Mar 23 (UNI) Leader of the Opposition in the Karnataka Legislative Council H K Patil today criticised the state government for not setting aside fresh funds in the budget for various ongoing projects, including setting up of a High Court bench in North Karnataka.

Taking part in the discussions on the budget for 2006-07 in the Council, he demanded that the government allocate Rs 100 crore for the Bench and Rs five crore for setting up a Law University at Hubli.

Recalling the agitation by the people of north Karnataka for years to get a High Court Bench in the region, Mr Patil pointed out that the Nanjundappa Committee report had also recommended setting of a bench in Hubli-Dharwad to remove regional imbalance in the state.

He said the government had also failed to set apart funds for several Railway projects, including Bijapur-Gadag and Hubli-Ankola lines, in the budget.
