Hubli: In the wake of Karnataka Governor H R
Bhardwaj issuing notices to three ministers on a petition
seeking their disqualification, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa
today said he would meet him soon to discuss "all issues"
concerning the state.

"I will meet the Governor in the next few days and
discuss all issues," he told reporters here.

The Governor`s action had been objected to by one of the
ministers, who contended he had no power to issue notices.

Bhardwaj had come down heavily on Infrastructure Minister
and mining magnate G Janardhana Reddy who questioned his
constitutional authority to summon him and two other
colleagues on a petition filed by a Congress MLA seeking their
disqualification on grounds of conflict of interest.

To a question on a reshuffle in the cabinet, Yeddyurappa
said the issue would be taken up only after the assembly
session.

He said the government was currently focused on the
Global Investors Meet, to be held in June and aimed at
attracting investments to the tune of Rs 3,00,000 crore.

He also regretted the delay in appointing Vice Chancellor
of Dharwad Agriculture University, which the Governor, also
the university chancellor, had criticised.

Yeddyurappa expressed confidence that the BJP would
emerge stronger in the recently held Gram Panchayat elections.

"We are close to successfully completing two years of BJP
rule in Karnataka. A special convention will be arranged on
June 18 to present to the people, the achievements of the
State Government," he said.
