Addressing presspersons after conducting inspection along with the concerned officials Yediyurappa said that the reason for the blast, who permitted the transportation of explosive substance in a lorry and what led to the incident will be investigated comprehensively, and necessary action will be taken against those responsible.

“Illegal quarrying or mining will not be permitted in the state and necessary action will be taken against such activities. I will take necessary action to stop illegal quarrying or mining,” Yediyurappa said.
