Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa is likely to file a petition before the High Court on January 24 challenging Governor HR Bhardwaj`s sanction to prosecute him under the provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.

"We are already working on a framework. We will go to court. The Chief Minister is likely to file a petition before the High Court on Monday," Minister for Law S Suresh Kumar said here.

He said the Governor is yet to furnish a copy of his order giving sanction to prosecute Yeddyurappa, despite pleas.

"Let us see whether the Governor will give us a copy today," Kumar said.

Yesterday, Yeddyurappa had shot off a letter to Bhardwaj objecting to denial of the copy of the order.

Sources said when Chief Minister`s Principal Secretary met the Governor, Bhardwaj told him that he would first give the order copy to complainants.
