“I will come out clean. I have said this earlier too. The Investigation is going on. Earlier, I had asked our seniors to take my resignation but they had asked me to wait. Now I do not want to embarrass my seniors and have given my resignation to the Chief Minister,” KS Eshwarappa had said after tendering his resignation from the party in April over the alleged suicide of contractor Santosh Patil who had accused the minister of corruption.

Dead contractor Santosh Patil had accused the Minister Eshwarappa of corruption. He was found dead in a lodge in Udupi early this year.

Karnataka is slated to go to Assembly polls next year.

On being asked about the early elections in the state, Chief Minister Bommai exuded confidence of completing the tenure and said that he has not spoken to anybody regarding it.

“I have not spoken to anyone related to the early election. I am sure that we will finish our term. The election does not come if anybody claims so,” he said in the press conference.
