Yeddyurappa to meet SMK, Dharam over NICE

BANGALORE: Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Friday said he would seek the advice of former chief ministers S M Krishna and Dharam Singh to end the controversies surrounding the Bangalore- Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project.

“Most of the major decisions with regard to the BMIC project were taken during the tenure of Krishna and Singh. I would, therefore write to them seeking their advice on implementing the project. If necessary, I would even meet them personally to discuss the matter,’’ Yeddyurappa said.

Yeddyurappa’s decision to consult Krishna and Singh came after the JD(S) refused his offer for a roundtable discussion over the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE), the promoter company of BMIC project. “It shows that former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and his sons are only interested in keeping this issue alive to gain political mileage,’’ Yeddyurappa charged.
