BANGALORE: After the Supreme Court upheld the appointment of Shankar Mahadev Bidari as state DGP&IGP, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said that all appointments made by his government until now are legal and will be the same for all future appointments too.
“The appointment has been ‘vindicated’ by the apex court.
The next course of action will be decided upon after obtaining a copy of the Supreme Court’s verdict,” he said on the sidelines of a function here on Tuesday.
He refused to comment on M D Vishwanath withdrawing his High Court appeal against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, questioning the clean chit to the latter over illegal mining.
However, he volunteered to add: “I do not know with what intention was the appeal filed and withdrawn.
It is not a good tradition to file a petition against anybody and withdrawing it unnecessarily.
Because of this, no case will reach its logical end.” Asked whether such incidents will have any impact on state politics, the CM said he would react only after taking cognizance of its sensitivity.
“At this juncture, I will not make any comments,” he said.
