Bangalore, Jul 22: The Congress is vociferous in its demands for Karnataka CM's immediate resignation following the Lokayukta mining scam report that indicted BS Yeddyurappa. BJP President Nitin Gadkari, who earlier defended Yeddyurappa, remained mum when asked to comment on the issue.

The CM is currently holidaying in Mauritius with his family. Witnessing the opposition's mounting pressure demanding Yeddy's resignation, Gadkari said that he would look at the report before commenting on the issue.

“I have heard about the reports in the media but I have no details with me. I will have to look at the details in the report when I come back to India & I can only then comment," Gadkari said.

On the other hand, Lokayukta Chief Santosh Hegde said that there were enough evidences against Yeddyurappa and his ministers in the illegal mining scam as revealed by the reports.

Santosh Hegde also stated that the party tried to influence him to keep Yeddyurappa's name out of the report on the illegal mining scam. "The report is ready. No question of me yielding to their pressure...I am beyond all that. I have been a judge for six and a half years", Hegde said.
