It may be recalled the Mala Land deal with a land size of 44,000 sqmts was giving to Kanaka Infratech for a paltry sum of Rs 1 per sqmt to be paid annually for a lease of 60 years. Civil society activists had lodged an F.I.R at the Police Head Quarters to investigate into the matter. The then Congress government had approached the High Court to grant a stay on the investigations, a petition which was declined and the police authorities were to continue with the investigations. However, so far there has been no progress on the investigations into the alleged corruption case.
Deshprabhu intends to raise the matter with the Congress High Command and alternatively file a complaint on the issue with the Central Vigilance Authority and Central Bureau of Investigations to investigate into the matter, since, there has been no progress at state-level.
Curtorim MLA Alexio Reginald Lourenco has also been named in the F.I.R, since he took after the reigns of NGPDA from Nilkanth Halarnkar
