Objecting to Bhardwaj`s action, Yeddyurappa shot him a
letter saying, "It is very unfortunate that being a
constitutional head of the state, a copy of the order passed
by you was not handed over to me and the information of such
an order was divulged to the press."
"I have neither received the copy of the complaint
petition, nor an opportunity to explain my point of view.”
"It is seen from the media reports that you have accorded
sanction for prosecuting me based on the complaint petition
filed by two advocates. Immediately, I have deputed one of
our senior officer from the Chief Minister`s Secretariat to
Raj Bhavan to collect a copy of the said sanction order.”
"The officer deputed for the purpose met your principal
secretary and also yourself and requested for copy of the
order. I understand that your Excellency declined to provide
the copy of the order," he said.
According to sources, angered over the denial, Yeddyurappa
had planned to stage a dharna in front of the Raj Bhavan.
However, later he dropped the plan and decided to write a
protest letter to the Governor.
