NICE proj: K'taka to come out with descrepancies
Bangalore, June 17: Karnataka Government will soon place all facts related to the ongoing Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Expressway project before the public to clarify its stand on the issue, Transport Minister Cheluvarayaswamy said today.
Speaking to newsmen here he said the coalition set up of Janata Dal (Secular) and Bharatiya Janata Party could not shoulder the lapses and failures of the previous governments in this regard.
There were some descripancies in the agreements signed with the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor enterprises, the promoters of the project and it would also be made known, he added saying that these changes had led to injustice to the farmers.
Replying to queries he said the government, keeping in view the Supreme Court verdict, would in no way come in the way of the project and fulfill all its obligations. The question of resignation by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy would not arise on the matter, he felt.
He denied a suggestion that the government had backtracked on the issue and said while it was not opposed to the project, the extent of land to be allotted was only the matter of concern. "If we (the Government) don't save the public property, who else would do it," he asked.
