Former Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Thursday said that unnecessary controversy has been created surrounding Governor Vajubhai R Vala’s spending on upgrading
the Raj Bhavan in the heart of Bengaluru and added that there should be no discussion about the state’s top constitutional post in the general public.
“The governor has every right to have his own facilities and other things. And nobody should discuss about the Governor in the public because these things will looked after by the President of India. In
so many years, nobody has raised such questions in the country or in the state. People have unnecessarily created this issue, which people will not like,” Yeddyurappa told ANI here.
An RTI query has reportedly revealed that Vala’s office had claimed an eight-figure amount for the renovation of the Raj Bhavan.
A further amount of around Rs. 10 lakhs was allegedly spent on chartered flights.
Vala was appointed by the BJP-led Union Government in September last year.
