This is a news item “Gowda trying to scuttle Bangalore Expressway” – WHY DOESNT someone take care of this dimwit idiot – Gowda??!!! and other Karnataka politicians!
The promoter of the Rs 2,250 crore Banagalore-Mysore Expressway project on Tuesday alleged before the Supreme Court that former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda and his son H D Revanna, a minister in the state cabinet, were trying to scuttle the project for political reason.
‘‘All sorts of trouble were being brought about on the company which was unable to execute the project,’’ a bench comprising Justice Ruma Pal, Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice B N Srikrishna, was told by senior advocate Dushyant Dave, who appeared for the promoter company — Nandi Infrastructure Construction Enterprises (NICE). Nice alleged that till now the state government has not rescinded the agreement for execution of the project entered in 1997. The counsel claimed that Deve Gowda had written a letter to his son Revanna, who is PWD and Energy minister against the project and later a committee was formed to review it, which said that 2,450 acres of land or any surplus land should not form part of the project. The bench listed the matter for further hearing on January 10.
