The Karnataka capital has been abuzz since Wednesday that Lokayutka is set to charge Karnataka chief minister Mr BS Yeddyurappa of doing precious little to check illegal iron ore mining and allowing his sons' business ventures to benefit from it.
The buzz started within hours after Lokayukta N Santosh Hegde told reporters that his officials have found illegal mining evidence against influential politicians and people.
The speculation in the political circles on contents of the report was that there seemed to be nothing new except that business ventures of Yeddyurappa's sons had financially benefited from those indulging in illegal mining.
The names making round as getting mentioned in the report are those already facing serious charges of illegal mining barons and Bharatiya Janata Party ministers, the Reddy brothers and their associate and Health Minister Mr B Sriramulu. Of the Reddy brothers, Mr G Janardhana the most vocal is tourism minister and his elder sibling Mr G. Karunakara holds the revenue portfolio.
Mr Hegde, a retired judge of the Supreme Court, has to submit his report on rampant illegal mining in the state within the next ten days as his five year term expires Aug 2.
