Chief Minister of Karnataka B S Yeddyurappa made it clear yet again that he would not step down. Briefing media persons in Bangalore he said he has written to the Prime Minister asking him to constitute a committee to look into the issue of phone tapping. He said that the committee would be headed by s M Krishna.
Further I have also written to Nithin Gadkari seeking constitution of an internal committee to eaxmine all corruption charges against my family and me.
On the Lokayukta report he said appropritae action would be taken once it is out. Although he did not specify what the action would be he said let the report come out and then I will answer all this. The question of stepping down does not arise now. The Lokayukta report is not the final word on the issue. Similar issues are before the court and let it take a decision on the matter.
