Outgoing Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Tuesday moved the Karnataka High Court for quashing the Lokayukta's report which indicted him in the illegal mining case that eventually cost his job.
He even added that he'll return to the CM post in six months. 68-year-old Yeddyurappa, who is the first BJP chief minister of a southern state, made this remark at an informal meet with state government officials.
Video footages beamed by TV channels showed one unidentified official telling Yeddyurappa how it had been a pleasure to work with him. And the BJP leader's response was that he would be back as the state chief minister in six months.
The remark by Yeddyurappa, who was forced to step down on Sunday, set tongues wagging as to whether it was said in jest or seriousness.

In his petition, Yeddyurappa, who resigned following a directive by the party's central leadership in the wake of the submission of the report, questioned the recommendation of the Lokayukta for his prosecution under the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
