Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah’s Son Awarded Govt Contracts

The Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is facing a charge of conflict of interest as his son’s firm is awarded a contract for labs and diagnostic center in a Government Hospital. The opposition has questioned this contract. While the CM has said that due process was followed and this firm had the lowest bid. A company jointly owned by Siddaramaiah’s younger son is set to establish a super specialty lab and diagnostic center on the campus of the Government-run Victoria Hospital, raising questions of propriety and conflict of interest. Matrix Imaging Solutions’ lab, which promises cheaper diagnostic services, will start working on a trial basis this month-end. Incorporated in 2009 with the Bengaluru Registrar of Companies, Matrix Imaging Solutions has two owner-directors: Dr CM Rajesh Gowda and Dr Yathindra Siddaramaiah, the CM’s younger son. The center is coming up on the ground floor of the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) Hospital. The campus also houses Vanivilas Hospital and two government labs.
