Drop land deal with Mumbai developers, AIPJD tells govt
Bangalore, Apr 25 (UNI) All India Progressive Janata Dal (AIPJD) President C M Ibrahim today demanded that the JD(S)-BJP coalition government in the state immediately drop its reported move to sanction over 5,000 acres of prime land in and around the city to Mumbai-based real estate agents.
Addressing a party convention here, he alleged that the government had recently decided to allot the land belonging to farmers to a few real estate agents. The agenda of the new JD(S)-BJP government was to grab lands and loot the state exchequer in the name of development, he charged.
Mr Ibrahim wondered why Janata Dal (S) President H D Deve Gowda, who had scuttled the previous government's move to release 850 acres of land to IT major Infosys saying it was farmers' land, was maintaining a stoic silence over the new government's mega land deal with Mumbai-based developers.
He warned that his party would resort to agitation, if the government failed to drop its move.
