BJP got happy and overjoyed when Congress dark side was exposed. But when Illegal mining scam showed the exit doors to Chief Minister B. S. Yedyurappa, BJP's support for Anna for corruption free country was loosened. They came under severe tension in Karnataka believing they may loose the government ruling.
But bells of happiness started ringing for BJP when Foreign Minister S. M. Krishna came under the scanner for his alleged role in illegal mining in Karnataka when he was the chief minister.
Also under probe will be two other former chief ministers, N. Dharam Singh, again of the Congress, and H.D. Kumaraswamy of Janata Dal-Secular. Both are now Lok Sabha members, Singh from Bidar in north Karnataka and Kumaraswamy from Ramanagara, near Bangalore.
On a complaint filed by Bangalore-based businessman, the special Lokayukta (ombudsman) court judge N.K. Sudhindra Rao issued the directive Saturday to the police. Police are to submit the report by Jan 6. The probe will cover 11 serving and retired senior officials as well.
The BJP and JDS had been alleging that illegal mining in Karnataka began during Krishna’s chief ministership in 1999-2004.
Singh headed the first coalition government in the state of the Congress and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) during 2005-06, and Kumaraswamy headed the next coalition government with BJP from February 2006 to October 2007.
Krishna, who was chief minister from October 1999 to April 2004, is accused of releasing the forest areas in the rich iron ore mines district of Bellary, about 300 km from Bangalore, to many mining firms in violation of the environmental laws and illegally amassing wealth in the name of his family members.
All these days BJP was just blaming Krishna for starting the illegal mining scam to hide their 'wrong doings'. Last Saturday their voices was heard and scanner has been placed on Krishna.
Well these two parties are getting busy to expose dark sides of each other keeping aside real issues of development.
Well in my point of view, Krishna has changed the Mahabharat. Here Krishna played the role of Pitamah too, by being the first one to introduce illegal mining as said.
