Karnataka minister D Sudhakar, chargesheeted by CBI in an alleged cheating case, is likely to put in his papers as suggested by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa.
The Social Welfare Minister, who has been chargesheeted for cheating a bank, is likely to resign before Mr. Yeddyurappa leaves on Tuesday on a foreign tour.
The Chief Minister said he has already spoken to Mr. Sudhakar and advised him that "under the circumstances, it is better to resign".
Mr. Yeddyurrapa said Mr. Sudhakar's re-induction can be considered after he comes out clean in the case.
The RSS at its two-day southern region meet, which concluded at Davanagere on Sunday, reportedly asked Mr. Yeddyurappa to seek the resignation of Sudhakar.
