BANGALORE: The state government will promulgate an ordinance making one-year rural service compulsory for MBBS and PG students, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda told the Assembly here on Wednesday.

In response to a question raised by Dr Sharan Patil of Congress, the CM said of the 600 candidates selected for direct recruitment of doctors by the KPSC, 252 cleared interviews and were called for counselling of which only 137 attended. “Only 57 reported for duty,” he explained.

‘Probe Into Land Deal’

The state government will order a CID enquiry into the media reports of BDA allegedly leaving out 800 acres out of 3546 acres earmarked for K Shivaram Karanth Residential Layout, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda told the Assembly here on Wednesday.

Responding to H D Revanna of JD (S), the CM said land for the layout has not been notified and hence de-notification does not come into picture.

“Yet, there are media reports that 800 acres would be dropped from acquisition, which will be probed,” the chief minister said.

DKS-Yogeshwar War

in Assembly

The political war between Forest Minister C P Yogeshwar and Congress leader D K Shivakumar continued when the latter told the Assembly that the Vidhana Soudha police had not filed FIR against the minister despite a complaint lodged by Nice company on Tuesday.

Shivakumar alleged that Yogeshwar had taken Rs 2 crore from Nice company in lieu for getting land from farmers for Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor but failed either to get land or return money. “Though a plaint was lodged, no action was taken.”

However, Yogeshwar rubbished the charge as a “politically motivated  

propaganda”.
