New Delhi: Congress on Friday defended the
action of Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj granting sanction to
prosecute Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on corruption charges
saying he had done so after "full application of mind".
"These are situations which are well-known, established.
The Governor has acted after full application of mind. Only
those who have something to hide should be worried. Otherwise,
this is the discretion (of the Governor) and if anybody is
aggrieved, they can take appropriate legal action," Congress
spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said.
Bhardwaj accorded sanction to prosecute Yeddyurappa
and Home Minister R Ashoka on corruption charges.
