Dissent arises in coalition govt. over sale of land to JSW Steel
By The Hindu 30-May-2019
The government had taken the decision in the Cabinet meeting on Monday in accordance with an agreement signed over a decade ago.
The government allocated the land to JSW Steel under a lease-cum-sale agreement in 2006 and the lease was for 10 years.
Taking exception to the decision, senior Congress leader and former Minister for Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) H.K. Patil has written to Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy to annul the decision.
Mr. Patil had also headed a Cabinet sub-committee to oversee steps taken on a Lokayukta report about illegal mining in the State in the previous government.
Mr. Patil, in his letter, recalled the recommendation of the sub-committee to consider the long-term impact on the State Exchequer while sanctioning land for industries connected to steel and mining.
Mr. Patil said he had raised the issue of JSW owing huge dues to the State-owned Mysore Minerals Limited (MML).
