The row over the allegation made by the BJP MLC Janardhan Reddy against Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy and forests minister C. Chennigappa, of having gobbled up Rs 150 crore in bribes from mine owners in Bellary, refuses to die down, as the events in the legislative assembly yesterday show. With the BJP backing its legislator’s charges in a roundabout way, the stage seems set for a grand showdown between the coalition partners in Karnataka, even as the Congress smells blood.
At the same time, deputy chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa and his supporters, who till now were seemingly on the side of the JD(S), too, seem to be losing patience. BJP legislators complain of being treated like the Opposition despite being a part of the coalition; Yediyurappa has complained of being ignored by the CM. Which means that even if the Ananth Kumar faction of the BJP breaks ranks, the chances of the Yediyurappa faction rushing to HDK’s help seem bleak.
Question: First the expressway impasse, now the bribe charge, with D.V. Sadananda Gowda‘s rants in between. Has the countdown begun for the collapse of the Kumaraswamy regime?
ಕಿಲ ಕಿಲಾ, ಅಯ್ಯಯ್ಯಪ್ಪ!!
ನಮ್ಮ ದೇಶದ ಕಥೆ ಎನಾಗಿಹೋಯ್ತು? ಕಾಗೆಗಳು ಕಚ್ಚಾಡಿದ ಹಾಗೆ ಕಚ್ಚಾಡ್ತಾರೆ ನಾಲಾಯಕ್ ಜನ.
ಈ ನಮ್ಮ C M ಅಂತೂ ಮೊದಲು ಹುಟ್ಟಿಸಿದ ಭರವಸೆಗಳನೆಲ್ಲಾ ಹುಸಿಗೊಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಹಣ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡಿರುವುದು ನಿಜವೋ ಸುಳ್ಳೋ ಅದು ಬೇರೆ ವಿಷಯ… ಆದರೆ, ಸದನದಲ್ಲಿ ಆಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ವಿದ್ಯಮಾನಗಳಂತೂ ನಿಜವಾಗಿಯೂ ದು:ಖಕರ. ಈ ಜನರಿಗೆ ನಾಚಿಕೆ, ಮಾನ, ಮರ್ಯಾದೆ ಯಾವುದೂ ಲೆಕ್ಕಕ್ಕೆ ಇಲ್ಲ…. ಮೂರೂ ಬಿಟ್ಟ ಜನ ಇವರು…… ನಮ್ಮ ಲೆಕ್ಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಇವರೆಲ್ಲ ಸಾಕಷ್ಟು ಹಣ ಗಳಿಸಿ ತಮ್ಮ ಮಕ್ಕಳಿಗೆ, ಮೊಮ್ಮಕ್ಕಳಿಗೆ ಜೀವನದ ದಾರಿ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ನನ್ನ ನೋಡಿ, ಕಷ್ಟಪಟ್ಟು ದುಡಿದೂ ಸಹಾ ಒಂದು ಪೈಸನೂ ಮಾಡ್ಲಿಲ್ಲ ನನಗೋಸ್ಕರ… ನನ್ನ ಮಕ್ಕಳ ವಿಷಯ ಬಿಡಿ… ಏನೂ ಮಾಡದೆ ಹಾಗೆ ಮೇಲೆ ಬಂದುಬಿಟ್ಟೆ.
ನಾನಂತೂ ಚಿತ್ರಗುಪ್ತರಿಗೆ recommendation ಮಾಡಿಸ್ತೀನಿ ನಮ್ಮ ರಾಜಕುಮಾರ್ ಅಣ್ಣವರಿಂದ – ಇವರೆಲ್ಲರನ್ನೂ ನರಕದಲ್ಲೇ ಉಳಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಪ್ಪ…. ಸ್ವರ್ಗಕ್ಕೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಕಳಿಸಬೇಡ…. ಇಲ್ಲದೇ ಹೋದ್ರೆ, ಸ್ವರ್ಗನೂ ಹಾಳು ಮಾಡ್ತಾರೆ ಈ ಜನ ಅಂತ. ನಮ್ಮ ನರಕದ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಂಡೆಯಲ್ಲಿ extra long oil bath ಕೂಡ recommend ಮಾಡಿಸುತ್ತೀನಿ. ಭೂಮಿ ಮೇಲೆ ಮಾಡಿದ ಪಾಪಗಳೆಲ್ಲಾ ಈ ಸ್ನಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳಲಿ. Oil Bath ಕೊಡೋ ಭಂಟನಿಗೂ ನಾನೇ ಖುದ್ದಾಗಿ ಹೋಗಿ ಒಂದು ಮಾತು ಹೇಳಿ ಈ ಸ್ನಾನಾನ double strong hot ಮಾಡಿಸುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ ಪಡ್ತೀನಿ. ನೀವ್ಯಾರೂ ಬೇಜಾರು ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಡಿ…
The promises of better administration that HDK made at the start of his CMship has been only that – Promise. Here is a man, who jumped his father’s gun and achieved his aim of becoming the CM. HDK wants to make good of this opportunity till it lasts. what if there is no governance, progress, as long as HDK and his co can make money, it is ok. As for the self proclaimed humble son of soil, his silence may be an indication that what ever junior is doing is good for the state. Anyway, Junior is only pursuing the agenda set by his father.
The days of this coalition is numbered.
The springs gives birth to hope anew, yet the hope may last awhile as the summer heat tends to it, but starts to shiver as the strong winds of autumn surge across the land, and finally whither as the bitter chill of winter freezes the very heart of men….
Such is also the case with our HD Kumaraswamy. Hope for a better administration, a responsive government and an accountable regime have all whithered and died much before the winter chill has set in on the domes of the Vidhana Soudha.
Kumaraswamy is in a bear hug with his father. We know what happened to JD(S)-Congress alliance and the same fate awaits after CM completes 20 months and the BJP can not be unaware of it. Both of them are for the spoils of the office and it doesnot matter who heads it . They will help themseves generously and make hay while the son shines and new moonday gives them enough cover to perpetrate their dark acts of looting and people of Karnataka will be left with holding the empty chambu.
Government must not fall. Opposition are making big issue out of this..Let them bring Bofors and all scams which Congress govts did in the past. Congress people are just power mongers nothing else. They(Congress) never want good for the people,they want good for themselves and their families.
Houdu swamy Government should not fall- but nav beelthivi beeltheevi andre en madodhU?
Nobody in his right sense is ready to believe the Words of Congress on Bribe.
Let us allow this Youngster to continue as Chief Minister of the State. We all know how honest others are. Within these Three or Four Months of his Rule we see some improvement in the conditions of Roads in Bangalore which the previous Congress Government could not do in twenty months of Rule. As a common tax paying citizen I am not interested in these allegations, which has become the style of functioning of all parties while in opposition.That is Politics and I have no interest in that subject. I am satisfied if some improvement is shown in basic needs of common man.
