BANGALORE: Social welfare minister D Sudhakar, who refused to quit after the CBI chargesheeted him for allegedly defrauding a bank in a housing
scam, has been given a short breather.
Following his persistent plea, chief minister B S Yeddyurappa has granted him a week’s time to put in his papers. Sudhakar met him on Monday night and explained the legal aspects of his case.
“Sudhakar has agreed to quit if the CBI court admits the chargesheet. I thought it is valid to give him time to prove his innocence,” Yeddyurappa told reporters on Tuesday.
