After Cong, now BJP scam: K'taka CM in land row


BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Nov 18: When the country is exhausted with several scandal stories of Congress-led UPA government, the fresh BJP scandal hit India once again as Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has been landed into a fresh land scam.

BJP leader Yeddyurappa, though he repeatedly denied all allegations against him, has been allegedly charged that he freed government land to favour his two sons and other family members.

The controversy took a new turn when Janata Dal (Secular) released a fresh set of documents in support of its case and demanded the Chief Minister's resignation.

According the documents, Yeddyurappa's two sons Raghavendra and Vijayendra in 2006 bought land with a throw away price, but market value of those same land is Rs 500 crore.

In another instance, Raghavendra paid just Rs 10 lakh but the market value now is over Rs 2 crore.

Yeddyurappa, however, claimed that by denotifying the land in favour of his family members he had only followed the precedent set up by his predecessors.

But Congress and other parties have demanded Yeddyurappa's resignation from Chief Minister's post, though RSS stated, "RSS is satisfied with the explanation given by the chief minister. There is no doubt in his continuing on the top post unless his government is toppled."
