Bokaro (Jharkhand), Jul 27: Evading a direct reply to the charges against Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddurappa, a senior BJP leader on Tuesday said one must wait till the findings of the Lokayukta report were made public.

"After the Lokayukta report comes out, the party would look into it," BJP's National General Secretary Jagat Prakash Nadda told reporters here when asked to comment on the leaked report.

Referring to Congress' reaction on the issue, Nadda countered why Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister P Chidambaram were not resigning as "former Telecom Minister A Raja already implicated them before a court" in the 2G spectrum case.

However, Raja later claimed to have been misquoted by the media.

Earlier in the day BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said in Delhi, "as stated by our party president, we will wait for the Lokayukta report before taking any decision."

The report, running into over 4,000 pages, is slated to be handed over to Chief Secretary S V Ranganath. Much of the findings are already in public domain after last week's leak that indicted Yeddyurappa and four Ministers, among others.

Alleging the UPA is "neck-deep in corruption," Nadda said BJP has launched month-long countrywide agitation from July 25 in protest against graft, price rise and attempt to attack democratic institutions, Nadda said.

Nadda was here to attend the state BJP's two-day executive committee meeting.
