  • In 2011, Radhabai Kharge’s daughter Priyadarshini Kharge made headlines for a 3280 sq. ft. plot of land, which she purchased on 15 January 2002, allegedly in violation of Society’s bye-laws. In 2002, Mallikarjun Kharge was serving as the Home Minister in the SM Krishna-led Congress government. She secured the plot for Rs 1,96,837 at Yelahanka (Allalasandra) Judicial Layout while its market value ran in crores. In light of the allegations, she returned the land in question to the Karnataka State Judicial Department Employees House Building Co-operative Society (KSJDEHBCS) in 2011. Priyadarshini availing the land would have been a direct violation of Clause-10 of the Model Bye-laws of HBCSs, which deals with members’ rights. Clause-10(B) says: “He/she in the case of Employee House Building Society is an employee of the organisation for which the society has been organised and has put in a minimum continuous or intermittent service of five years in Karnataka.” Priyadarshini was not eligible to become a member as she is a doctor by profession while the land was reserved for judicial employees.
