PTI reported that the BJP government in Karnataka will examine and take a decision on the previous coalition government’s proposal regarding the sale of 3,667 acres to JSW Steel at Ballari. Minister for Large & Medium Scale Industries Jagadish Shettar said “I will look into it and discuss with officials regarding it. Did they do any activities regarding it or not, is there any report, all those things I will take that file and examine. We will examine it. Then the law department had opposed the move, why it had opposed everything has to be examined and we will take a decision.”
The Congress-JD(S) coalition cabinet in May had decided to convert the lease of 3,667 acres to JSW Steel at Ballari into sale, in accordance with the initial agreement. The BJP while in opposition had opposed the move and even had staged protest against the then government’s decision.
