CBI must inquire into corruption by CM: Ugrappa

The Times of India
MANGALORE:In six decades of post-Independent India,only one senior politician,Rao Shiv Bahadur Singh,has been convicted of graft and served a jail term -- for taking bribe of Rs 25,000 back in 1949. Therefore, it makes no sense in handing over cases of corruption involving politicians to commissions of inquiry (COI), and Padmaraj panel set up to go into cases of corruption against politicians in the state will serve no purpose.
Taking this stand at a media briefing on Sunday was KPCC spokesperson V S Ugrappa, who said the only way that the state can know the extent of corruption indulged in by the CM B S Yeddyurappa was for the CBI to inquire into them. Quantifying this amount in the last 2-1/2 years involving denotification in KIABD, BDA, JNNURM, and mining to be Rs 1 lakh crore, Ugrappa said only the CBI could unravel this issue in its entirety.
