Impossible is nothing in the world currently inhabited by Karnataka politicians. In this telling picture, Zameer Ahmed Khan (second from left) of the Janata Dal (Secular) rubs shoulders with C.T. Ravi of the Bharatiya Janata Party as packs of photographers try to capture the action in the Raj Bhavan in Bangalore on Monday.
Zameer Ahmed, who represents Chamarajpet in the Legislative Assembly, is a bum chum of former chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy. Ravi, the legislator from Chikamagalur, has been at the forefront of the growing communal mobilisation at Baba Budangiri, in defusing which H.D. Deve Gowda rightly claims a not insignificant role.
When the JDS snubbed the BJP over 20 days ago, Gowda cited Bababudangiri among other things. The sangh parivar outfits, he claimed, were turning Karnataka into a ‘Hindutva laboratory on the lines of Gujarat‘.

Sitaram Yechuri is openly asking for Muslim reservation based on religion in a “secular” state. He is “secular” to Churumuri. BJP is demanding equal treatment for all – is termed “Communal”. Churumuri is pushing Psuedo-Secular Agenda.
I will add one more thing: These sorts of reporting actually helping BJP’s growth in a big way. Dividing HIndus along caste line, and rallying Muslims/Chrictians religiously, BJP cannot be stopped 2 long.
Another spit on the face of public who rightfully deserve every ounce of this garbage dished out for endorsing the corrupt culture for so many years!
There are no good guys here – only losers (including yours truly)!
BJP in karnataka — no noteworthy leader. simply dont have the requisite caliber to run a govt. JD S and CONG have leaders who have come up associating themselves with pro-farmer ,pro-kannada , literary movements. they are from the soil. but BJP fellows are away from people, for them SO CALLED HINDI-HINDU IS THE ONLY ISSUE.
house should be dissolved , elections should be announced.
JD S AND CONGRESS WILL DEFINITELY GAIN and BJP WILL BE WIPED OUT.
Wishful thinking of the Dentist Doctor
aren’t you critical of the literary types?
ware waah!! daakutru paksha badalisbitru!
Dr. Ramesh, can you please justify your claim that Congress and JDS will gain and BJP will lose?
and can you also quote the names of congress “leaders” in Karnataka who is better capable of running a govrnment ?
dont tell SM Krishna :P
please read 29-10 -2007 prajavaani ankana by mr. jagadish.
excellent analysis of present political situation in the state.
DEVEGOWDA has scored another last ball sixer. supporting bjp at this juncture is a masterstroke move.
kumaraswamy— washed off his vachanabrashta tag.
minorities —will dump congress,because they did not support gowda in installing a secular govt.
governor—may still dissolve house ,elections will be held and that is what gowda wants.
Dr Ramesh reminds me of the Doordarshan serial- Mungerilal ke haseen sapne. If everything was as simple as he suggests then DG would be the lord of the universe! As far as divining what DG wants I am not sure anyone can do that- even DG himself.
daaktre, adarallenide sooper-tana?
in fact nimma vicharave sooper. ninne tanaka Gowda and his Kumara are gods anta pooje maadtidri.. eega noDidre M P Prakash hinde ODtaa iddeera !!
devegowda is the most poilitically active former prime minister. yet the baton has been passed to kumaraswamy, karnataka needs to give majority to a dynamic leader like kumaraswamy to progress.
NO ONE CAN STOP AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME.—said victor hugo. how true.
DB said, “NO ONE CAN STOP AN IDIOT WHOSE TIME HAS COME.” :)
Kurigalalla saar Jana kurigalalla. let all the imposters expose themselves to their heart content. They will be taught a lesson when time comes. Mundide Mari Habba. Even Indira Gandhi tasted the ire of people, after all Mannina maga is no exception.
I fully agree with Dr. Ramesh and go a step further. I cannot wait for the day when Devegowda is the President of India, Kumaraswamy the PM, and Revanna our CM. The triumvirate can then appoint all of their family members, fawning film actors, and tribute paying retainers (includes M.P. Prakash who wants to quit elective politics to become an MP–M. P. Prakash, M. P. huh) governors of various states and national commissions. I hope they will also privatize Indian Oil or Bharath Petroleum or whatever it is called and call it Paduvala Hippe Enne. All petrol pumps will be called Gowda Ennemane.
What role the learned doctor, who is being unjustly maligned for being sagacious, play in this revolution?
my clearcut view is, devegowda and HDK are any day better than thugs in the BJP AND CONGRESS.
people may agree or disagree, situation has gone out of hand, limitation of damage is the only solution.
these are some of the views directly expressed to me by people who are close to corridors of power——
1) CONGRESS GOVTS were super corrupt, duddu kottaru kelsa aagta irlilla , at least JD S GOVT NALLI DUDDU KOTTARE KELSA 100 % DONE.
2) CONGRESS C M’s were never accessible to common people,they had a coterie . even MLA’S COULD NOT MEET THEM.
kumaraswamy yellarigu sigtaare,avara hattira kashta ,sukha maatada bahudu. ahankaara illa.
3) BJP,CONGRESS party high command including the state incharge leader ,(who usually is an outsider)has to be bribed running into crores to get any party position, jd s paravaagilla.
4) kumaraswamy launched a new kannada channel, first kannadiga to do so, giving jobs to hundreds of localites. what have others done.
list goes on….
so instead of thinking with a pre-determined mindset , one should think with a broad outlook.
