Bangalore: Chief Minister B S
Yeddyurappa has moved the Karnataka High Court challenging
Governor H R Bhardwaj`s January 21 sanction to prosecute him
in alleged land scams.
In a petition filed by his counsel Saneep Patil,
Yeddyurappa alleged the governor`s sanction on petitions by
two advocates revealed "bias, non-application of mind and
Constitutional impropriety".

The petition is likely to come up for hearing
tomorrow.

On January 21, Bhardwaj granted sanction to prosecute
Yeddyurappa and others on the petitions by Sirajin Basha and K
N Balraj over alleged land scams.
Armed with the governor`s sanction, the two lawyers
had filed complaints against Yeddyurappa and some of his
family members, including son-in-law Sohan Kumar, in a trial
court.

However, on a petition filed by Kumar, the high court
had on March 29 and April 1 stayed the proceedings in the
trial court.
