Bangalore: The Special Public Prosecutor HS Chandramouli on Wednesday resigned from his post.
However, his resignation is yet to be accepted by the government.
Speaking to a news agency, Chandramouli said "a rumour has been doing the rounds that Dorairaju is going to replace me. Since I have also been a well wisher of the government, I do not want to come in the way of the smooth functioning of the department and therefore have submitted my resignation to the government".
Chandramouli was appointed SPP by BS Yeddyurappa when he was the chief minister.
