Bangalore: A combative Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today ruled out his resignation, maintaining that he has not committed anything wrong, even as he said the BJP will expose in Lok Sabha “scams” involving opposition JD-S supremo H D Devegowda and his party.
Returning from Delhi, where BJP’s Core Committee last night discussed allegations of land scams against him and the options before it, he insisted that there is no question of change in leadership in the remaining two-and-half-years of the state government’s term.
Talking to the media in the northern Karnataka town of Hubli, Yeddyurappa said, “Why should I (resign)? There is no offence from my side. I have not committed any mistake.”
The Chief Minister said a retired Supreme Court judge would conduct the probe into denotification of land since 1994 and he would be asked to submit his report within six months.
