Former Karnataka Chief Minister and JD(S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy - The Hindu.
JD(S) leader H.D. Kumaraswamy on Wednesday accused the Karnataka government of deceiving farmers under the guise of industrial development and threatened to expose its “nexus” with steel giant Posco.
“The BJP government in Karnataka is looting farmland under the guise of industrial development by deceiving farmers and causing huge loss to the state exchequer,” he told reporters here.
He said though the government had exercised restraint in acquiring land in Dakshina Kannada district following protests by locals and NGOs, in Gadag it had cared little for the plight of agitating farmers and had acquired farmland for Posco.
