judge Chandrashekaraiah Bangalore: In an embarrassing development for state BJP rulers, foreseen by wise persons watching political and administrative developments, even appointments (like, SM Bidri’s unwarranted appointment as DG-IGP now cancelled by CAT, and this judgment then endorsed by a KHC bench), now the appointment of a former ‘tainted’ high court judge S. Chandrashekhariah as the second Upa Lokayukta (deputy People’s Vigilance Commissioner), has been quashed by Justice N. Kumar and Judge H.S. Kempanna forming a bench of Karnataka High Court on Tuesday, April 3.

CM DV Sadananda Gowda had made the wrong appointment. The act was challenged by two city advocates, wrong appointment. The act was challenged by two city advocates, M. Anand and J.C. Krishna, contending that this appointment was not valid, as the KHC did not approve it, nor was the CJ consulted.

There is Justice S.B. Majage still in service as first deputy Lokayukta but he is safe.

The post of Lokayukta is not al all filled up, since September, 15, 2011 i.e., 200 days ago.

CM Gowda must be thinking hard on ‘Sakaala’, to make the 2 appointments, to curb 25% balance corruption in 15 days.
