Yeddyurappa received criticism after the Lokayukta sought a probe against him on denotification of lands, saying there is a prima facie case in November. Apart from this there is an independent commission of inquiry probing several charges against the CM.

Recently Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj had granted a sanction to prosecute Yeddyurappa over allegations of denotification of land acquired by the government, apart from other charges. The case is now being heard by special court in Bengaluru.

Yeddyurappa hoped that once he declared these assets in public, he will be able to clear the various charges of corruption that he faces.

The opposition has, however, not taken too lightly the declaration of assets and liabilities of Yeddyurappa. H D Kumaraswamy, former chief minister of Karnataka and Janata Dal-Secular leader said that there was nothing new declaring assists and failed to understand why such a big deal was being made out of it.

"I will be more interested in knowing about the denotification of lands in favour of his sons and also how Yeddyurappa managed to procure all that he has just declared," he said.
