BENGALURU: The Bangalore Development Authority will look into allegations against former Legislative Council chairman V R Sudarshan that he had furnished a false affidavit to get a site.
The state government recently recommended Sudarshan for the post Karnataka Public Service Commission chairman. On Saturday, T J Abraham, president of the Anti-Graft and Environmental Forum, submitted a memorandum to BDA Commissioner T Sham Bhat demanding that the authority take back the site allotted to Sudarshan in HRBR Layout. “The affidavit he filed to the BDA was false as his wife, B R Pushpa, already possessed a BDA site in Rajeev Gandhi Nagar,” Abraham stated.
Copies of the memorandum were also sent to the office of the Lokayukta and the Chief Minister.
Abraham said Sudarshan had falsely declared in his affidavit dated 27/06/2001 that “neither him (Sudarshan), his wife nor his dependent children possess any site/property/house within the jurisdiction of BDA, not even any property which earlier belonged to BDA or any other authority and not even anything (house or site) allotted by any the House Building Society/Board in the said jurisdiction.”
Site No. 252 in N T I Layout, 2nd Phase, Rajeev Gandhi Nagar in the city, measuring 1,680 sqft was registered in the name of
B R Pushpa, d/o B R Ramachandraiah (w/o V R Sudarshan) vide registered document no. 5484/96-97 dated March 10, 1997.
Sham Bhat said the authorities needed to cross-check with the original file and then get the opinion of BDA law officers. “We’ll look into it and take a decision. It may take a while,” he said.
