Press Trust of India  |  Mangaluru 

Forests Minister and Dakshina Kannada district-in-charge B Ramanath Rai today denied allegations by a former leader that he had grabbed land in the district.

Speaking to reporters here, he said the charges of Harikrishna Bantwal, who recently joined BJP, werebaseless.

He said he was in possession of only the property given to him by his family.

Rai said he had 15.22 acres of land at Kallige given to him by his father and some land bought from his brothers and sisters.

There was no point in the allegationsthat land had been grabbed, he said.

A person who had joined a party which defeated him six times was now raising the allegations, Rai said.
