Claiming that the allegations related to allotment of land to Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa's kin and his ministerial colleagues had affected the image of the State, Union Minister for Law and Justice M. Veerappa Moily on Saturday said: “the State Government should feel ashamed of it.”

Talking to presspersons after participating in the decennial function of the CMR Institute of Technology here, he asked what would be the relevance of conducting an inquiry after the State's image had been damaged.

To a question, Mr. Moily said the Union Government was not considering any intervention in the State at this stage.

Earlier participating in the function, the Union Minister stressed the need for upgrading the standards of higher education in the country to achieve fast and inclusive growth.

He pointed out that the growth in India had been made possible because of education and we need to speed up the task of improving the quality of education.

He urged youngsters to work towards contributing something to make the life of the next generation worthwhile.
