Legislators’ fund to stay

BANGALORE: Legislators’ local area development fund won’t be allowed to lapse this year. Instead, a provision to carry forward the unspent amount to next year will be made.

Chief minister B S Yeddyurappa announced this on Thursday while seeking approval to supplementary estimates of over Rs 10,000 crore for 2009-10. The estimates were approved amidst opposition protest. The actual plan outlay for current year’s budget is Rs 29,500 crore.
