  Opposition parties are considering to move a no-confidence motion against the Congress government in a bid to get its attention to discuss about all the corruption issues pertaining to the Lokayukta in the legislature, reported Deccan Chronicle. The motion is likely to be moved next week when the second leg of the monsoon session begins in Bengaluru. The BJP and JD(S) have collaborated on this issue and are holding talks together to plan their next move. While JD(S) state President HD Kumaraswamy has already prepared to initiate action in this direction, the BJP will make its stand after holding discussions with former Lokayukta Justice N Santhosh Hegde and former Advocate General BV Acharya, the report said. A source told the paper that the government was aware of the corruption since the last two years and yet chose to remain mum on the issue. The internal corruption case in Lokayukta came to light as it had begun initiating action against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in the Arkavathi land denotification issue. “The other major issue that would have embarrassed the state government was the renewal of iron ore mining licenses for eight companies. The Lokayukta probe was tightening the noose around some powerful people in the government and we want to rake up that issue also during the debate,'' the source was quoted as saying by the paper.
