When the High Court and the Supreme Court have both had their say, you might believe that the last word has been said on an issue. Any issue. But not when it comes to the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor. Not when it comes to the H.D. Deve Gowda family. Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has now challenged Ashok Kheny, the NRI promoter of the project, to an "open debate", even as his government contemplates legislation to take it over.
Questions: Do you think the Gowda family is genuinely championing farmers' interests, or are they merely using positions of power to protect their own lands situated in the BMIC jurisdiction? Do you believe a government can go back on its own written contract in the interests of faceless farmers? When the HC and SC have delivered their judgments is there anything to debate at all? And, as Kumaraswamy has asked, do you trust the government or NICE, the promoters of the project?
