Saddened by BJP Choosing Yeddyurappa as Karnataka CM Candidate: Ex-Lokayukta


Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Apr 19, 2018 : Former Lokayukta (or people’s ombudsman) of Karnataka, N. Santosh Hegde, who had prepared a voluminous report on illegal iron ore mining in the state in July 2011 that had severely indicted former chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa, is “saddened” that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has nominated him as its chief ministerial candidate in the upcoming assembly elections.

A former judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Hegde, whose father and he has had close links with the BJP, said he and his officers in the Lokayukta had found “foolproof” and clinching evidence against Yeddyurappa and his sons receiving “bribes” from mining companies and granting them illegal favours.

He expressed his unhappiness that the state government and other law-enforcing agencies had not diligently pursued the cases against the former chief minister and his family members and rued the way in which the faith of ordinary people in the criminal justice system had been eroded.
