George, who intervened while replying to the revenue minister R. Ashok on the issue of excessive rain, expressed his displeasure that he had accused me of closing the lakes.
“Your party members are trolling. Tell me which lake I have closed in my time. I have not closed a single lake. He challenged them to investigate the encroachment of the lake. Investigate if I encroached the lake illegally. “If you make a mistake, punish him instead of accusing him of malice,” he expressed his displeasure.
CM Basavaraj Bommai replied to this, We are not accusing anyone personally. Do not take this matter personally. But, the only truth is that the lake is closed. He said the government is ready to investigate the closure of the lake.
We will investigate. Let me tell you next about the nature of investigation. How the lakes were encroached upon. How the lakes were closed. Who gave permission for this…? He questioned. Apart from that, CM Basavaraj announced in the Bommai House that they will investigate everything.
At this time Siddaramaiah intervened and said that the lake should not be closed any further. Bangalore city should not be allowed to deteriorate. It is already getting damaged, it should be stopped. This is our responsibility,” he said.
‘Why do you look at me as a pumpkin thief..?’
I have not accused anyone of lake encroachment. CM Bommayi asked George that why are you looking at him as a pumpkin thief. We will investigate, why are you panicking?
