Bangalore: Karnataka Home Minister R Ashoka
on Tuesday denied that Governor H R Bhardwaj exerted pressure on
the state government in promoting an aide to IPS grade.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function here,
the minister said as a constitutional functionary, the
Governor, who has written a letter to the government favouring
such a promotion, has the right to give suggestions.

He said the letter has been referred to the State DGP and
Home Secretary for their opinion and once it`s received, the
state government would take a decision.

Ashoka said the state can only send in its recommendation,
while it`s in the purview of the Central government to confirm
the promotion or not.

The case pertains to K C V Mane, the security officer
(ADC rank) to Governor, who had requested the state government
to promote him considering his services.
