Bengaluru, July 4: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah announced that an investigation is being conducted to determine if there was any misuse in the allotment of MUDA plots. The plots are currently on hold, and there has been no loss to the government. Those involved in the plot allotment have been transferred, and a senior IAS officer is leading the investigation. A final decision will be made after the report is submitted.

Responding to media on the BJP’s allegations of misuse in the MUDA plot allotments and their demand for a CBI inquiry, the CM asked, “Why do they want to hand over everything to the CBI?” He noted that no cases were handed over to the CBI when the BJP was in power. He also mentioned that it was the BJP that created the law to provide alternative sites to those who had given up land.

Ashok would resign if accused of dereliction of duty. During his tenure, R.
