High court issues notice to former chief minister Yediyurappa in corruption case


Bengaluru, Aug 3 (IANS): In a major setback to former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, the Karnataka High Court on Monday issued notice to him in connection with alleged corruption in a housing project.

A single judge bench of Justice S. Sunil Dutt Yadav also issued notice to Yediyurappa's son and BJP state Vice President B.Y. Vijayendra, former minister S.T. Somashekar, and others in connection with the case.

Activist T.J. Abraham had approached the high court seeking inquiry, after a special court dismissed the case for want of sanction to prosecute as Yediyurappa held the Chief Minister's post and Somashekar was a minister.

The allegations included receiving kickbacks from a contractor in a housing project launched by the Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA).

The development comes even as Yediyurappa is trying hard to get cabinet berths for Vijayendra and his followers.

    Shankar: why were all BJP high command and all bjp supporters didn't speak against a corrupt chief minister for so long, now only after he stepped down all have come out to condemn yeddy, this is all being done only to keep yeddy lying low and not do any adventurous thing against BJP. Yeddy even knows if he goes against bjp wishes than he will be in big trouble.

    "What about me??? Just because I criticize you sometimes...???? A person who criticizes you when you are wrong is your true good friend!" Shankar, you are indeed my friend.. I remember we are in Daiji forum for the last decade may be and often we have conflicting views (only Congress vs. BJP). Please let us continue such relation for time to come. I also, have to mention Rita's name and Cynthia already included her name in my long list of friends. As a matter of fact I never ignored my relation with childhood friends and college mates. I still keep contact and now Wats app is so convenient.

    He should have thought before hijacking 17 opposition MLA'S to Bombayya in chartered Flight - whose money?????? to horse-trading. Opposition is always opposition it will not become your position when you install few of them to your team by the power of money laundering. Amit Shah and Modi never wanted to horsetrade and form the government illegally in Karnataka, now they are giving him his own medicine to cure.

    BJP is a party with high morals. There is no doubt that Yeddi has reared BJP in karnataka from roots. But when he got power, it corrupted him. There is no room for corrupt people in BJP. He should go to jail if the corruption cases are proven.

    Our politicians and bureaucrats should realize, just making money for 7 generation is of no use. They may have brand new cars parked outside the house. They may have diamonds, in their cupboards. Most modern homes here and at Beverly hills and crores of rupees in their bank and at Swiss But, when Yamaraj comes to take, none of these things can save them. When we stand in front of the creator, only our good deeds will help us to get the happiness, God made us to enjoy. We are creating our own fate.
