Karnataka plunges into crisis
Legal eagles sharply divided over sanction for CM’s prosecution
BS Yeddyurappa, Chief MinisterChandigarh/Bangalore, January 22
The political crisis sparked off by Karnataka Governor HR Bharadwaj’s decision to accord sanction to prosecute Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, has provoked mixed reactions among experts.

"Why should I quit? If somebody gives a complaint (against a Chief Minister) in India.... has anybody in the history of any state or India resigned. Why should I?"
BS Yeddyurappa, Chief Minister

Governor’s action improper: Nariman
The Governor has no power to order prosecution of a Chief Minister if the Council of Ministers has advised him not to do so. The earlier view taken in A.R. Antulay's case where Maharashtra Governor Latif had advised the then Chief Minister's prosecution was upheld by the Supreme Court on a submission made in the High Court that the Governor had the power to do so.
