December 7th, 2010 - 8:45 pm ICT by ANI  

Bangalore, Dec 7 (ANI): The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday issued a notice to Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa in connection with a land de-notification in Bangalore.

The directions of the court came following a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Congress MLA Narendra Babu.

The land in query is one-acre plot in Nandini Layout here.

Yeddyurappa has been accused of corruption by a spectrum of political leaders for allegedly sanctioning state-owned plots of land to his relatives.

The government has ordered a judicial probe into all land transactions over the past two decades.

Yeddyurappa is under pressure from the party high command to step down in the wake of the alleged land scams.

The Janata Dal Secular (JDS) chief H. D. Kumaraswamy has claimed that Yeddyurappa’s sons had been allotted 2.5 acres of denotified land.

Kumaraswamy had also alleged that Yeddyurappa misused his position to denotify state-owned land to favour his sons and other relations. (ANI)
