Karnataka Lokayukta final report on illegal Mining indicts CM BS Yeddyurappa loss to state Rs.1800 Crore

The Government had asked Lokayukta to probe all the cases of illegal mining since 2000 in the state.
The interim report was submitted in 2008 and the final report has to be submitted now.
Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde said the full report will be submitted to the Government on Friday

A professional told to Lokayukta Santosh Hegde that his telephone has been tapped. Every thing was being recorded from two sources,"
Telephone tapping was noticed in the past three-four months, Hegde said.

Question - why delay happened to prepare report on illegal mining in Karnataka state 2000 to 2011?

The final report on illegal mining found that BJP chief minister BS Yeddyurappa and other politicians benefited lot.

Hegde said chief minister Yeddyurappa's son's trust got Rs 10 crores from a mining company.

The report says that Janardhana and Karunakara Reddy received massive kickbacks for mining leases they granted.

Janardhan Reddy is accused of taking 40 per cent commission for smuggling out illegal iron ore, collecting money through front companies and running a parallel government in Bellary by paying bribe to every officer and cop.

The report says that state suffered and lost the environment also as laws relating to environment also not followed.
The breach of central and state laws has funneled an environmental disaster. Hills that were once green have been reduced to red dustbowls.
The report states that over 58 companies were involved in illegal mining, while 43 of them carried out their activities with support from politicians.
politicians held stakes in these 43 companies either directly or through their relatives.
mining owners allegedly paid kickbacks to Yeddyurappa through prerana trust, in which his sons were trustees, to continue with their illegal activities.

The report states that Koodligi MLA B Nagendra and Kampli MLA TS Suresh Babu were unauthorized iron ore dealers. They ran transport companies and played prominent role in ensuring a safe passage for the iron ore to the ports.

The ore had to cross about 27 check-posts to reach their points of destination.
From RTO officers, Peon and Constables every got the bribe.
More than 600 officers or officials colluded in the racket.

The final report says that following minister’s politicians should be investigated.
1. Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa;

2. senior ministers and mining barons from Bellary the Reddy Brothers; Janardhan Reddy and Karunakar Reddy

3. former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, who heads the Opposition Janata Dal (Secular)

4. cabinet minister V Somanna

5. Cabinet minister Sriramalu

6. Congress Rajya Sabha MP Anil Lad

Currently Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa is holidaying and enjoying in Mauritius.
I do not know he went to Mauritius using his own money or he is on official tour and enjoying.
Normally all Indian politicians enjoy their life using government money.

The final report on illegal mining says that in last 14 months more than Rs. 1800 Crore
have been lost. The loss to the state.
The time period is between March 2009 to May 2010

How the state got robbed, below are the few methods.
1. Trucks issued a permit for a single journey make multiple trips,
2. collecting far more iron-ore than allowed.
3. They are seen over-loaded, easily making their way through check points

Remember we are the owners of state, loss to state means loss to you, loss to every Indian.

Now I am thinking how much we must have lost from year 2000?
