"We will appoint a judge very soon. The decision will be made in a day or two," he said.

Shinde also denied reports that no judge is willing to head the inquiry commission.

"It is not correct that judges are unwilling to take this responsibility. There are some problems but we will do it soon," he said

"I have also spoken to Law Minister (Kapil Sibal) and we will do it soon," he added.

The Commission, to be headed by a retired Supreme Court judge, will also look into charges of snooping on Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh by the erstwhile BJP government.

The Union Cabinet had last month decided to set up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry to probe charges of illegal surveillance on a young woman in 2009 by the authorities in Gujarat.
