I will not resign: Buta Singh

January 24, 2006 15:27 IST

Bihar Governor Buta Singh on Tuesday virtually ruled out his resignation in the wake of the Supreme Court indictment of his role in dissolving the Bihar assembly in March following the assembly elections.

"Who told you that [I am quitting?]," Singh shot back at journalists at Delhi's Bihar Niwas when asked whether he would quit his post over the court strictures against him.

"I have not said anything on it. I am going to take the salute in Patna on January 26 [on Republic Day]," he asserted.

Refusing any further comment on the Supreme Court judgment, he claimed that the Bihar administration had 'fully implemented' the October 7 verdict by conducting the Bihar elections in a 'remarkable' manner.

"I am happy that elections were held in Bihar in a remarkable manner. Such elections were never held in any state. I am happy I have fully implemented the Supreme Court verdict."

On the charge that his recommendation to dissolve the Bihar assembly was aimed at favouring a particular political party, he declined to comment.

Singh abruptly ended his press conference, saying he needed to study the full judgment.
