The state BJP unit submitted a petition before the Justice HS Kempanna Commission of Inquiry, who is looking into the denotification of the Arkavathi housing project, which is a controversial subject against present Karnataka government. As per the petition submitted by advocates S Doreraju and S Nataraja Sharma, the party has alleged that the government failed to protect the villages clubbed together as the Arkavathi project from getting denotified and blatantly violated court orders of the High Court in the process.
According to the petition the action of the present government in considering the application, requests and official recommendations given by certain vested interest, officers of the government, politicians and land mafia are totally illegal, arbitrary and high handed. It is also opposed to the established Law and procedures as a result which the public has suffered and justice is on trial. Further to it, Karnataka suffered loss of crores of rupees on the account of illegal and arbitrary decisions by the government and orders issued thereafter.
Petition lists the witnesses including seven former BDA commissioners and Commissioner Shyam Bhat, who could be summoned by inquiry commission. It is a known secret that the Karnataka government is playing at the hands of land mafia.
