Adding to the political heat, Governor H.R. Bhardwaj on Sunday indicated that he will give a report comprising his opinion to President Pratibha Patil soon after the Lokayukta's final report on illegal mining, which has indicted Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and four Ministers, is officially submitted.

Replying to queries from presspersons if the Lokayukta's report on illegal mining — which exposes the nexus between those in the government and mining lobby — is a fit case for recommending President's Rule in the State, the Governor remarked: “I have not received any request from either side (ruling or the Opposition parties) on whether this warrants President's Rule or anything.”

Pointing out that the report was yet to be officially submitted by the Lokayukta and the information related to indictment of the Chief Minister and other Ministers has been learnt only through media reports, he said: “All these things are coming in the press.”
