An RTI Activist in Bangalore,B.M.Shivakumar has dragged Bangalore Development Authority in a freshly unearthed scam. B.M.Shivakumar had earlier exposed the BDA land allotment scam related to the Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda. This time, he has presented documents obtained through RTI, which could mean trouble for a BJP MLA from Haveri, Nehru Olekar.

The documents what he received in reply to his RTI Application have proved that the BDA had bent rules to allot a  site to Nehru Olekar. The cost of the site is said to be approximately Rs 60 lakh and the MLA has not paid the said amount to Bangalore Development Authority.

Its to be noted that Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has been already going through a rough patch with a lot of scams involving  them being exposed.

B.M.Shivakumar has also alleged that the BDA Commissioner Bharat Lal Meena has been involved in several such scams, but the BDA Commissioner has refuted all the claims made by B.M.Shivakumar and has asked him to approach the court.

It was in May 2011 this year that one more RTI Activist M.Z.Ali had complained to the police commissioner that a corporator named M.Udayashankar had issued death threats to him after he filed an RTI in regard with a land which does not come under the purview of  Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), M.Udayashankar represents Siddapura and is the opposition leader in the BBMP council, The Corporator though had denied the allegations of threat to M.Z Ali and stated him as his friend !!
