BENGALURU:JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy on Friday alleged that the state government was tampering with Arkavathy Layout denotification documents to “twist facts.”

The former chief minister told reporters that the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), on instructions from Siddaramaiah, had “illegally” issued “No Objection Certificates” (NOCs) to land owners even before the redo or the denotification process was done.

As per rules, BDA can issue NOCs only after the land is denotified, he said.

“Now they are forging these NOCs which is causing the delay in government submitting documents to the commission (Kempanna Commission),” he alleged.

Challenging the chief minister to respond to this, Kumaraswamy said he would release documents if the former did not respond by Saturday evening.

Kumaraswamy accused the chief minister of indulging in large-scale denotification of land by taking shelter under the “redo” plan of the High Court.

He also alleged that retired tahsildar Boraiah, Assistant Commissioner Venkatesh and BDA data operator Sharadha (employed on contract basis) were chiefly responsible for the denotification.

“The CM converted the Balabrooie guest house and a flat on MG Road into parallel BDA offices where these officials illegally listed and denotified the land by throwing away all norms to the wind,” he alleged.

Kumaraswamy said he would submit the documents to the commission as suggested by Siddaramaiah. He alleged that Siddaramaiah appeared to be frustrated, and so has let his “Rapid Action Force” led by Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister T B Jayachandra level baseless allegations.

Kumaraswamy said he had denotified around 230 acres of land, including 3.17 acres in Arkavathy Layout. On charges of denotifying 60 acres in Arkavathy Layout, Kumaraswamy said this was the decision of a high-level committee headed by then chief minister S M Krishna, and was for setting up a tech park.
