Bangalore: A day after sanctioning
prosecution of Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa in
alleged land scams, Governor HR Bhardwaj`s order on the issue
was delivered Saturday morning to the Chief Minister`s office.

Yeddyurappa`s January 21 letter to Bhardwaj asking for
a copy of the sanction order was received by Raj Bhavan at 11.00
pm, a communique said.

An eight-member ministerial team had this morning
staged a march to Raj Bhavan demanding that the Governor
provide them a copy of the order according sanction for
prosecuting Yeddyurappa.

The Chief Minister had yesterday charged that the
Governor had declined to furnish him a copy of the sanction

Irked by the announcement on prosecution even before a
copy of the order was given to him, Yeddyurappa had shot off a
letter to Bhardwaj taking exception to his conduct.

"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," Yeddyurappa had said in his letter

"I have neither received the copy of the complaint
petition, nor an opportunity to explain my point of view."

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.
