Arkavathy layout de-notification controversy : BSY challenges CM Siddaramaiah to order CBI inquiry

Mysuru : The controversy embroiling de-notification of Arkavathy layout is getting murkier day by day with both the ruling Congress and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party engaged in blame game.

On Wednesday, January 21, former chief minister of Karnataka B S Yeddyurappa challenged Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to order a CBI inquiry.

Addressing press persons on the side lines of the Shivarathreshwara Jatra celebration at Suttur, BSY said that it was Siddaramaiah who had indiscriminately de-notified the land and when the BJP raised the issue, he was blaming them.

"When H D Kumaraswamy was the chief minister, he had de-notified 81 acres of land and 57 acres of land was de-notified during the governor's rule. During my tenure I had de-notified 57 acres of land. But Siddaramaiah beat us all and de-notified 700 acres of land, BSY pointed out.

When asked about Siddharamiah's earlier statement where he had claimed that if a CBI inquiry was ordered then he would have go to the jail, BSY said, "people will come to know the truth if an inquiry is ordered, let him do so."

"Very soon the BJP will approach the governor and ensure that truth will come out," he added.
