Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS
Yeddyurappa on Tuesday declined to order any probe into the Rs 27
crore donations received by a trust run by his sons even as
Opposition parties insisted on a CBI investigation and
demanded his resignation.

Replying to a debate on the issue in the Legislative
Council, Yeddyurappa reiterated that there was no illegality
in Jindal Steels and Adarsha Developers making donations to
Prerana Education and Social Trust, in which his sons, BY
Raghavendra, an MP and BY Vijendra, are trustees.

Opposition Congress leader Motamma and MC Nanaiah of
JDS alleged that donations were paid to the trust by the steel
firm and also the real estate developers for the government
favours shown to them and demanded a CBI inquiry and
Yeddyurappa`s resignation.
