Cabinet to discuss SC verdict on Bihar
January 24, 2006 15:47 IST
Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has been asked to cut short his stay in Mumbai and return to the capital on Tuesday afternoon ahead of the Union Cabinet meeting at which the ramifications of the Supreme Court verdict will be discussed.
Buta Singh has given no indication of stepping down and has instead declared that he will preside over the Republic Day function in Patna.
However, informed sources described Singh's stand as untenable and his departure as inevitable.
