The Lokayukta has issued a final notice to eight legislators who failed to submit details of their assets and liabilities for 2015-16. The legislators include four MLAs and four MLCs.
This includes notice to Fairoz Nuruddin Sait (Belagavi North) among others.
The stipulated time to file the returns for the previous year is over. A few legislators had written to the office of the Lokayukta, saying that since there was no Lokayukta last year they thought it was not necessary to file the affidavits. Notices have been sent to eight legislators to file the statements within 10 days of receiving the notice.
