Karnataka CM Yeddyurappa defends himself on land scam issue

By Nairita Das

Mangalore, Nov.18 (ANI): Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa has defended himself against the allegations on land scam issue.

Interacting with the mediapersons in Mangalore, Yeddyurappa said all the land purchased by his family is legal.

"The land was given in accordance with the existing legal provisions. Land allocation and de-notification of sites has been practiced under various regimes. My government has also acted in the same lines. Two acres of land was given to a company run by my family members after following all the procedures," said Yeddyurappa.

"The Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) allotted the land to Eshwarappa's son (grandson of Yeddyurappa). All the land purchased by my family is legal," he added.

Recently, opposition leader H.D. Kumaraswamy had claimed that Yeddyurappa's sons had been allotted 2.5 acres of de-notified land.

Kumaraswamy had also alleged that Yeddyurappa misused his position to de-notify state-owned land to favour his sons. (ANI)
