Report on illegal mining at 3.30 PM today

The Karnataka Lokayukta has been finally given an appointment and he will now submit the report on illegal mining at 3.30 PM to the Karnataka Chief Secretary. While this is the official information regarding the time to submit the report, there is every possibility that things may change due to various circumstances.

The Lokayukta, Justice Santhosh Hegde who has prepared a report running into several thousand pages has indicted the Chief Minister, B S Yeddyurappa in it. There is also news that he has sought for the pressing of criminal charges against the Chief Minister and other ministers. The names of former Chief Minister, H D Kumaraswamy and Congress leader Anil Lad also figure in the report as beneficiaries of illegal mining in Karnataka. The report which will be submitted to the Chief Secretary would however not be made public. Justice Hegde has not spoken as yet whether there would be an official media briefing on the report as yet.

Once the report is submitted to the Chief Secretary, the cabinet of Karnataka would take a look at it. B S Yeddyurappa would then take the report and leave forNew Delhitoday evening where he would place it before the high command. Based on the findings and remarks in the report, he high command would decide on Yeddyurappa’s fate. The BJP top leadership after studying the report would meet late in the evening to discuss the same issue.

Yeddyurappa has however sticking to his stand of not stepping down even as the rebels have raised the pitch against him. Although there is a long list of probables to succeed Yeddyurappa, the name of Jagadish Shettar appears to be the strongest as of now.

Yeddy, Kumaraswamy, Bureaucrats and every Looters named in Report must be brought under CBI Inquiry and Charged in SC. Hon SC must also direct IB & RAW to Curb all Anti-National Corrupt Politicians and bring them to Justice. Good Job Santosh Hegde, India is Proud to have you in ANNA’s team for Jan Lokpal Bill.
