Harikrishna Ba..Speaking to reporters here on November 4, Saturday, Harikrishna Bantwal while producing some documents said  the Minister had   secured 2.04 acre land  in survey number 20/2 and 1 acre land in survey number 38/2,   a total of 3.04 acres in the name of his wife Shaila R Rai (Dhanabhagya R Rai) at Maani village in Bantwal taluk.

He  further alleged that a rubber plantation has been developed on a ten acre land out of the 30 acre government land on survey number 97/1 in Kallige village which is close by the residence of the minister. Harikrishna Bantwal  sought an explanation from the minister in this regard and also demanded a  probe by the ACB. He also said the DC must investigate the case.
