The Hindu

BANGALORE, AUG. 17. The State Government today decided to review the controversial Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project, meeting midway the demands and counter-demands of the two senior political leaders, H.D. Deve Gowda and S.M. Krishna.

While Mr. Deve Gowda had alleged a land acquisition scam and dismissed the project as a real- estate development enterprise, Mr. Krishna, wanted the project scrapped.

The Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, said the Government had asked the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises not to take up the work on the township projects till the Government clearly spelt out its stand on the project. He said there was a need to implement the project to ensure smooth traffic between two cities in future.
