ABIDe chief's resignation yet to reach CM

But both the Chief Minister’s office and the Urban Development department have denied receiving Chandrashekar’s resignation letter. “Neither me nor the CM’s office have received the resignation letter as on Wednesday evening,” said Principal Secretary, U Thangraj.

Sources close to Chandrashekar said his resignation was reportedly due to the State Government not implementing the Bangalore Metropolitan Regional Act formulated for the local body, the BBMP and the City in general. “This has nothing to do with the House Panel’s observation,” said a source. “It has to do with the implementation of the Act. The basic
functioning of ABIDe is under question if the Act is not implemented,” said another source.

Meanwhile, Chandrashekar has said that he will be involved in the flood relief works entrusted by the Chief Minister.

In an statement sent by his office, Chandrashekar said: “I will continue to discharge my responsibilities to my City and State and my commitment and involvement in the most important of my responsibilities - i.e., as co-ordinator for ‘Aasare.”   

Chandrashekar, in his official response to media reports on his resignation has said: “Aasare is one of the most important tasks that our CM has entrusted me and this vital work of building almost one lakh homes for our flood affected brothers and sisters of North Karnataka will continue without the slightest dilution on my part.”
