Bantwal, Sep 13, 2015: “Projects which are against nature will never be successful. The Yettinahole project is nothing but a vote bank gimmick,” said former Lokayukta Justice Santosh N Hegde.
He was speaking at a function organised as part of the JCI Week 2015 at Vittal on September 12, Saturday. Justice Hegde strongly felt that projects which harm environment are uncalled for. Stating that he did not have facts and figures about Yettinahole project, Hegde however regretted the fact that it was being undertaken by flouting rules.
Commenting on the corruption menace, Justice Hegde said the menace which has made inroads even into the anti-corruption body Lokayukta, can be wiped out only when youth rise to the occasion and boycott corrupt people.
