As the loose-tongues of the mother tongue flap around like cracked canines, with scarcely any debate on what such vigilante justice could be doing to Kannada, Kannadigas and Karnataka, one woman has chosen to kick them where it hurts most.
After a media conference called by her to divulge details of how she had spent her Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) funds was disrupted by the loudmouths of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, Kanakapura MP Tejaswini Sriramesh has responded in kind at being labelled anti-Kannada:
“I do not need lessons from those who do roll-call in the name of Kannada; from those who do goondagiri with the Kannada flag in their hands; from those who destroy public property; and from those who assault a woman in the presence of senior citizens. Nobody has the right to take matters into their hands.”

No protest from KaRaVe against Deve Gowda for his “should not have been born in Karnataka” statement. Looks like KaRaVe is a JD(Sons) wing.
Protests were unwarranted..dont know if these fellows are goondas but they sure behaved like one and deserved to be punished severely.
By the way, its interesting to know that an MP was involved in a meaningful discussion on MPLAD Funds..we dont get to hear of such meetings at all..
good copy from a goonda, roll call rani
People should take this post in all its sarcasm, right Mr. Churumuri?
The irony in the woman’s statement is that she thinks “nobody” has the right to take matters into their hands! Unfortunately our MPs (including this one) think they are party to this “nobody” :(
This MP from Kanakapura has been justifying the discrimination against kannadigas during the railway recruitment for Group “D” posts. KRV has been protesting this stance of the MP.
Congress runs the government at the centre and as an MP from the state and from the congress party, tejaswini has to speak out on behalf of kannadigas. instead she has supported the blatant discrimination against kannadigas in railways. hence this protest.
She herself is a cheat. She with her husband Ramesh have looted so many people. One example is of Shruthi who was attacked by one of the boy and threw acid on her. At that time this so called MP was working in Udaya TV with her husband. They did a program on this poor girl and asked people to help her. Money pored in and only 1% of the amount was given to that poor girl. She herself is a goonda. God save our state from such people.
MP gale neevu heege raajyakke anyaya aadagella sumne kootu, anyayada virudda pratibhatisora bagge kettadaagi maatadtidre neevu beda andru jana paata kalistare
Tejaswini Gowda may be no angel, but so what? The point of debate here is not Tejaswini, the journalist, but Tejaswini, a democratically elected representative of the people, describing a set of goons and goondas, who clearly have no interest or belief in democracy, and who seem to take the law into their hands using their ability to instil fear as a weapon.
If Tejaswini or any MP has been justifying discrimination against Kannadigas, the proof must be produced and there must be a debate at a proper forum. Who has given the right to these buffoons to storm meetings, with loin cloths painted in red and yellow, and throw chairs, destroy public property, engage in fisticuffs, create nuisance and make a mockery of the democratic process?
Have we elected these half-wits who seem to be fighting our behalf? Who decides what they will fight next? Have we told them? Have they obtained our OK? The male politicians in our state are too busy making their money or fathering children out of wedlock, which is why it is left to a woman to expose the third-rate tactics of a fourth rate organisation that is trying to take Karnataka down the drain.
The real disgrace is that our police seem happy to watch the proceedings, our media is too happy to play along, and the government of the day is too happy to ignore all this. The wise heads of Karnataka need to discuss this phenomenon threadbare before it gets out of hand. Otherwise, there will be hell to pay.
Her attitude and needlessly provocative way of making light of the ’cause’ itself are grounds for treating her like a moron, a genuine half-wit, a fourth rate ‘C’ grade actress and so on.
If only our MPs had some concern for issues related to Karnataka this would not have happened. In fact, if Ms Gowda had shown any sensitivity towards understanding the outrage of Kannadigas, this situation would not have gone out of control. Any politician who tries to belittle the cause of Kannadigas will face protests from KRV and others. And that is the Truth.
these M P ‘s were missing in action when KA RA VE and entire state were agitating against lalu and anti-kannada policy . KANNADA PRABHA CAME UP WITH A HEADLINE — kaaneyaagiddare , huduki kodi shoowing photos of our M P’S. then came their reactions.
karnataka MP’S are the most corrupt ,insensitive ,care nothing about the poeple who vote for them. ( exception being SHIVANNA – JD S M P from chamarajnagar).
ka ra ve has echoed people’s feelings.
U PERFORM or FACE THE MUSIC. kannadigara taalme yannu pareekshe maadabedi.
I don’t think Kannadigas need outfits comprising goondas to protect their interests. It is these outfits, which need instances of apparent injustice to Kannadigas as a reason, to create trouble in the society.
Karnataka and Kannadigas can do well without such outfits. Did our software professionals require the assistance of such groups to leave their stamp on the global IT sector ?

One woman spoke for herself and all the issues she mothered within wedlock.
Churumuri spoke with his father-tongue flapping around like a cracked canine for crores of Kannadigas, and spoke one word too much.
When the law of the land does not protect the land and the landsmen, the law must be broken; nay, it deserves being broken. It was broken by Gandhi. It was broken by Nelson Mandela. It was broken by Martin Luther King. It was broken by every true son of the soil who stood up for the cause of his landsmen. In Karnataka today, it is being broken by T A Narayana Gowda.
Even during the days of Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and M.L.King, there was no dearth of Tejaswinies, Atmasakshies and father-tongue-flapping Churumuries. They barked then, and they bark now.
Fie on that law which does not protect the interests of Kannada, Kannadiga and Karnataka. Throw away that law which acts against our interests. That law must be violated and jails filled. And remember, this need not be done with the philosophy of “showing the second cheek” to the slapper; it could be done with slapping the second cheek of such a shower — for the times have changed back to the days when Kannadigas exhibited Kshatraguna equal in intensity to the best Kshatriyas in the world.
Atmasakshi – I’d say you need to be be careful about your “loin cloth” lingo. There is no law yet on disgrace to the flag of Karnataka, but there will be one soon which will take away even your last remaining loin cloth to repair the damages.
The AANE is calling the KAGE black! A Law should come when the MP’s also lose their seat once the assembly is dissolved and they get re elected!
What KRV is asking for is legitimate. There are serious irregularities in the Railway recruitment. Some of them are listed at http://nadunudi.wordpress.com/2008/01/11/railu-biduvudu-2/
Get the Railway officers dismissed from Southwestern Railway for violating Railway establishment manual.
Else you will be seen as a tormentor for Kannada Cause.
KRV is a group of anti social extortionists who depend on ransom money to finance their anti social and immoral activities.To all those who are screaming in support of this goonda , i can only ask CANT you find a honest and staright forward kannadiga who could fight for your cause.Why depend on loose canyons.Tejaswni is no angel and iam sure SHE has been looitng the treasury in her own little way with the support of anti social elements in her part.She has come a long way from Travelling in a BTS bus when at udaya TV to her position now.Was it merit ?? Debateable.
We all have seen what this corrupt lady is?
When Patil puttappa called for a meet with all MP’s she was reluctant to come. She doesn’t have any vision for kannadigas or karnataka.
She is just against KRV inturn against kannadigas.
I have not seen even a single protest by KRV with selfishness.
All the protests or activities that they do will be in favour of kannadigas.
Churmuri, why do you always open provoking topics, by the way why are so against KRV always
ಕರವೇ ಎಲ್ಲ ಸಂಸದರ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ದನಿ ಎತ್ತುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಆಸ್ಕರ್ ಫರ್ನಾಂಡಿಸ್ ಆಯ್ತು, ನಿನ್ನೆ ತೇಜಸ್ವಿನಿ ಆಯ್ತು. ಇನ್ನೂ ಈ ಮುಂಡೇವು ಕನ್ನದಿಗರ ಹಕ್ಕಿಗಾಗಿ ಪ್ರಾಮಾಣಿಕವಾಗಿ ಬಾಯಿ ಬಿಡ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಈ ಯಮ್ಮ, ಕಂಟೋನ್ಮೆಂಟ್ ಎದುರು ಪ್ರತಿಭಟನೆ ಅಂತ ಒಂದು ದಿನ ನಿಂತಿದ್ದನ್ನು ಟಿವಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕಂಡ್ವಿ. ಆದರೆ ಇನ್ನೊಂದು ದಿನ ಸಂದರ್ಶನ ಕೊಡ್ತಾ ” ಇದು ಭಾರತ ದೇಶ, ಯಾರು ಎಲ್ಲಾದ್ರೂ ಕೆಲಸಕ್ಕೆ ಸೇರಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬಹುದು” ಅನ್ನೋ ಥರಾ ಮಾತಾಡಿದ್ದನ್ನು ಕೂಡಾ ಕಂಡ್ವಿ. ಅಯ್ಯೋ, ತಲೆ ಕೆದುಸ್ಕೋ ಬೇಡಿ, ಎಲ್ಲಾ ದೇವ್ರಿಗೂ ಒಂದೇ ಥರಾ ಪೂಜೆ ಮಾಡಕ್ ಆಗಲ್ಲ. ಚಂಡಾಲ ದೇವರಿಗೆ ಚಪ್ಪಲಿ ಪೂಜೆ ಅಂತ ಗಾದೇನೆ ಇಲ್ವಾ?
The use of words like “roll call rani”, “the woman”, “aane”, “corrupt lady” betrays a deep sense of male chauvinism that seems to ride on top of the linquistic chauvinism. This shines a lamp on the kind of damage this kind of vengeful, testerone-rich behaviour is doing to the Kannada psyche.
On the other side, the use of words like “goons and goondas”, “anti-social extortionists” conveys an inability to debate the issue on hand without getting personal. If they are all that, why hasn’t the police and courts taken action for all their acts?
1) Even assuming Tejaswini Sreeramesh and all her MP colleagues are guilty of siding with Biharis, it is for the people of karnataka to decide if they should represent them again or not. It is no business of any Rakshana Vedike or Bhakshana Vedike to hold a kangaroo court.
2) States like Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have gone through this xenophobic hatred for outsiders before, but at least they were represented by elected political parties like the DMK and Shiv Sena. Who has elected this Vedike or any other? What is its charter of demands or manifesto? How does this organisation choose its issues and targets? Who is it answerable to?
3) We need to demand accountability in public behaviour not because we are against Kannadiga interests or against the Rakshana Vedike or any organisation championing the cause because outrageous behaviour cannot become the norm of any civil society.
Something fishy here.
“After a media conference called by her to divulge details of how she had spent her Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) funds was disrupted by the loudmouths of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike”
Why is she saying now that she was in Ramnagar to divulge details of MPLADS. She went to Ramnagar to handout cheques from MPLADS. There was no intent to discuss MPLADS. Why did the agenda change after the incident.
I think Ms Tejaswini is not putting the facts right!!!
Allow us to be fair. Provide entire text of speech. Tell us more about the usual where, why, when, etc.
Yashica, very succinct comment.
My take : It is hyperboles galore on both sides of the fence with neither being wrong or completely right either.
On (1) – The electorate’s short term memory and a slew of corrupt factors deny the kind of justice one expects at the polls, thus leading to displeasure pouring to the streets. I proffer that as an explanation of things rather than subscribing to that mentality or justifying kangaroo courts.
On (2) – Elected or not, when xenophobia and fear mongering are the best your group/party has got, it is pathetic. Hatred cannot be your main plank, and Pakistan is a shining(or rotting) example of that attitude backfiring. And as far as elected officials, it is just a matter of time before KRV gets its folks on the ballots and into the government.
On (3) – Totally agree. With no set boundaries, it is hard to define what is acceptable behavior.
Since it is common knowledge that many of our politicians, and groups with linguistic-political slants have had a checkered past, the support or lack of it, should be issue based and not based on preset allegiance. I approve of KRV’s attempts to raise awareness and cause a debate, but not of its lawless methods.
Appreciate your call to reason amidst all the slogan-shouting from across the board.
1) KRV – or any other Pro-Kannada “outfit”, for that matter – is indistinguishable from “the people of Karnataka”. They are as much people of Karnataka as can be. If the elected representatives of Karnataka had had what it takes to truly represent the state, there would have been no need for the people to directly revolt against the system. It is because our representatives have failed to represent us that people have to take to the streets. It is KRV which is truly representing Karnataka and Kannadigas today, even though they are not representatives in the “political” sense.
2) It is apparent that you are basing your second argument on a need to academically stick to the current system with it flaws. If what is being done is “wrong” — whatever be your definition of that word is — how does it matter whether the doer is or is not an elected representative or body?
The question you should be asking instead is – “if what is being done is right, how does it matter if the doer is only a kangaroo court?”? If you had asked the latter question, you would have displayed “correctness” as a value. By choosing the former question, you have displayed “political correctness” as a value. It is your choice, of course, but what matters to Kannada, Kannadiga and Karnataka is the latter.
As to who this organization is and what their targets and projects are, please visit their website — KARNATAKARAKSHANAVEDIKE DOT ORG.
3) You are very right in pointing out that outrageous behaviour cannot become the norm of any civil society. What you have to do is recognize that this is not a display of “norm”, but a display of “exception”. Who wants to disrupt traffic? Who wants to shout slogans? Who wants to draw the wrath of armchair philosophers? Who wants to be called rowdies? Who wants all this nonsense? Nobody wants. Yet, this must be done. The “exception” must be exercised in order that the “norm” be restored. You could draw a parallel with war. Nobody wants war. Wars are exceptions which are exercised so that peace be the norm.
In an ideal world, your arguments make sense. KRV exists today because the elected representatives have failed the people of Karnataka. Calling Ms Gowda a “roll call Rani” and such only shows posters here know her antecedents very well.
Coming to protests, you have posted a domestic matter on how you are suffering in a badly built house. It is an interesting form of protest. Likewise, folks from KRV are protesting to protect the interests of Karnataka. Do you see the connection? How about applying the same ‘Gandhian’ principles in your own fight against the builder? Why take the matter into your own hands?
This lady used to conduct interviews with politicos for SUN TV. I used to cringe at her use of kannada words, yege for hege, ouda for houda etc.
Nevertheless, this journo who was crusader against corrupt poiliticians suddenly started holding on to the Mannina Maga’s panche and got elected to the Parialment.
MPLADS fund disubursement is not something Tejaswini Sriramesh Gowda, is doing from her walet er. vanity bag, it is the people’s money paid by the tax payer, she is only a custodian and should make all efforts to be a honest one at that. Being elected from Karnataka her first and last allegiance should be to the people of karnataka and not to some bihari’s or people from other states.
The title of this article exposes where churmuri’s heart lies when it comes to safeguarding the interestes of karnataka and kannadigas.
If you’ve ever watched Spiderman, Superman, or even to that matter, Hanuman they were all men too, and they saved (some imaginarily, some really!) the world from whatever went wrong during their times. And the world just benefited from them, and people who complained then, were the ones who learned a lesson too late.
But what has always happened (in the background, perhaps) is there have always been very strongly motivating women behind these acts of bravery and solidarity by some men. Thereby the mention of men helping a society here is symbolic of the combined effort of a few men and women.
BTW, since you seem to be ill-informed about the karnataka rakshana vedike, you must know that there is quite a large, and active women-wing of KRV, which also receives all the applause and the brick-bats when they’re talked about in forums like this and others.
After all, the sole objective that KRV exists is to protect the children of the Kannada ‘taayi’ – which is testimony to how much KRV as a body respects the womanhood in Kannada, Karnataka, Kannadiga.
Coming to the rest of your opinion – you seem to believe that the police or whatever the system calls it – is omni-equipped and can achieve wonders by solving all those ‘problems’ in their territory! No way! Tell us who according to you should actually be doing this? Democracy doesnt mean, you vote and then rest! Somethings will always go wrong, and then responsible citizens act. Some dont, and some others complain.
The issue here not what Tejaswini is but what she has said about KRV. And two cheers to her for that. Finally someone has the guts to call a spade a spade. These are the kinds of organisations a la the fans’ club of yesteryears which even the media is finding too intimidated to comment about. Kannadigas can fight injustice, if there is any, without these kind of organisations. Karnataka needs win its second freedom – from KRVs, abhimanigala sanghas and the like….
Yes we need the complete story but there in lies the rub. We only get contexts or one’s skewed version. This is not going anywhere. It will turn out to be a pot pourri of Us vs Them, Man vs Woman, laced with the usual contempt and all sorts of bashing.
Please give us the complete story(hoping it is the correct one)
and first get her name correct – Tejasvini Gowda not Sriramesh. You are about 200 episodes behind. update yourself
Yes full story with all the details – including all the rumours…
The elected MPs from Karnataka are shameless people. They are least bothered about the welfare of karnataka and kannadigas which is evident from the number of MPs who attended the meeting chaired by Patila puttappa. What ka.ra.ve is doing is right. They have no other option.
They should launch a political party and fight these kind of issues. It will have more impact. Regarding Tejaswini the lesser the said the better.
Already some of the comments above have highlighted how she has misused journalism and political power. Under whose courtesy and how she won the elections everybody knows. Morally she is unfit to pass any comments against ka.ra.ve. It is like the pot calling the kettle black.
For all those well learned people who are questioning about who gave the right to ka.ra.ve to fight the cause of kannadigas , it is like asking who gave the right to Gandhi , Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose to fight for the cause of Indians. No one gave the rights and they did it on their own, self-motivated. Same is the case with ka.ra.ve.
Scan from Kannadaprabha article is posted on my blog http://nadunudi.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/teja.jpg
Thanks to Narayana for directing us to his blog.
The article, unfortunately, seems to be awfully biased against the KRV (which is not to say that I endorse the Vedike’s alleged actions). What is impressive about the article is the way it presents the honorable MP’s (I am not calling her “Aane,” Rollcall Rani, etc.) self-righteous and hubristic description of herself as invincible. We have seen this in Deve Gowda and his sons. If she is truly interested in Karnataka and Kannada’s well-being, she should be willing to tell us exactly what she has done aside from visiting some chalauvaligararu in jail, wherever, whenever it was.
I am one of the many writers who have expressed concern about the Vedike’s composition and agenda. I want an organization which claims to do right by us to be one that we can all be justly proud of. The Vedike has a lot to learn about avoiding violence when it registers its protest. What is gained by destroying furniture or anything?
I would like to someone to tell me what our MP’s qualifications to speak for us are besides the questionable act of their election by devious means. Their recent approval of the KRV’s stance is less than nothing. I think there are thirty-three of these persons. A most positive strategy would be to get all of them together on one platform and have them answer questions about their performance in Parliament when it comes to our jana, nela, and water issues. I would especially like to hear Selvi Das, Prema Cariappa, M. A. M. Ramaswamy, Venkayya Naidu, and Rajeev Chandrasekhar tell us in Kannada about their commitment to Kannada and Karnataka.
Such a meeting is unlikely, given the pussilanimity of politicians. They will not show up for fear of being attacked or simply because they have nothing to say to show that they are honorable people.
So what do we do? Can we persuade each one of them to explain through newspaper columns what they have done? Can we create a compelling, flawless ethical and moral argument that will allow them to weasel out of the situation?
While I appreciate the call of many responders to this item for civility in the debate, I would also suggest that they try a little bit of introspection. Why does an act of defending Kannada interests invariably come to be characterized as chauvinistic? Why not see it as an act of self-defence spawned by the foolish habit of New Delhi taking Karnataka for granted, by its representatives in all three branches of the Constitution betraying our trust? The Vedike’s penchant for recognition through disruptive activities is a direct result of the feeling of humiliation that smolders in the heart of every Kannadiga. What are federal and local government bodies willing to do bring about an equitable solution to our problems? Our elected representatives are in thrall to their leaders, especially if they are members of the BJP or the Congress, and to the idea of making themselves rich before the next election or a midterm election. How does one get rid of the rot? Herein lies the rub. Herein also lies our lack of integrity. Elections come. Jaathi and money determine who goes to Bangalore or New Delhi. We will not see them for another five years.
Despite all the self-praise we induge in with regard to our decency, courage, creativity, Kannadigas are an illiterate mass of cowardly people. We do not have the wisdom to know what to do; we don’t have leaders who can lead us out of this miasmic state.
Educating Kannadigas in their own language is a first step in making them aware of what they have lost and how much more they will lose.
So much for my bloggardism. I do want to thank the first post in this column. Why, why indeed has the KRV not said a damn thing about Devegowda’s wish that he hadnot been borne in Karnataka?
I do want to thank the writer of the first post in this column.
Dear sir/ madam,
How much does “Devegowda’s statement” deserves protest from KRV? kannada, kannadigas and karnataka have more imporant issues to be addressed by KRV. vedike is not with any political party as we saw. It has protested against Askar, Tejasvini of Cong I, against BJP MP during Belkagavi APMC elections, against Jameer Ahmed of JDS, when he did not take oath in kannada after assembly elections. KRV tried to bring all MPs together for a meeting regarding Kaveri issue. None of them turned. Mr.Patil puttappa has recently called for a meeting of MPs regarding railway recruitment. Only three have attended.
People who are now commenting about KRV not protesting against DG should really understand the drama behind this. KRV need not be the dice in the hands of political parties.
KRV has always raised its voice about the issues which have impact on kannada, kannadiga & karnataka. They have fought during kannada film industry’s theatre problems, kaveri water dispute, belagavi, railways, illegal english schools… Soft militancy of KRV is essential to protect the interest of KKK. Some may not like the way, but we can’t suspect their intentions. KRV is the true representative of kannadigas as it has more than 12 lakh members ( probably, highest in the state), more than 5000 branches… In my opinion JDs is less harmful party compared to Cong & BJP as it has its hi-command in karnataka only.
I agree with everything you say except the last sentence in your post! Just because the high command is in the state doesn’t mean anything for the benefit of Karnataka. Selling seats to MAM Ramaswamy and Chandrashekar is it good for Karnataka? Open your eyes and use your brains!!
Why couldn’t Dity Devegowda field a Chandrappa or a Doddi Buddi as Rajyasabha MPs? Now use your intelligence to deduct the harmful effect of a “Appa kalla, Maga Sulla” party on the dignity of the State
The last sentence of Shri Chandrappa’s letter intensifies our discomfort about the KRV’s non-response to Gowda’s calumny.
Jcourse, I mean politicians should not be able weasel out of their responsibility to answer our questions.
Athwa ‘barey yeno satthappa’, you don’t seem to understand the injustices against Karnataka is so much deep-rooted all the clownish tokenism movements like Vatal Nagaraj are a waste of time. KRV is making a sincere effort to address the injustices suffered by Kannadigas.
DB, I agree with your comments on Chandrappa’s reply.
But I guess his comment intended to convey this comparative tone when it comes to talking about parties playing on our land – all national parties on one side, and JD(S) like local parties on another side. Weigh what they’ve done for the state, they’ll probably weigh equally bad! No prizes for guessing that.
But weigh them on the grounds of what they can be made “by us” to achieve for us (if ever we can); you’d probably find the ‘local’ party side over-weighing the national party side – thats because do what you can, these parties which call themselves national, are simply ruled by their ‘bigger’ counterparts sitting there in the national capital. They need an Advani or a Jaswant to come here and settle their problems – they need to be baby-sat even in their seventies – of which they have spend more than 40 years in politics!! And they want to become our leaders, huh!
So if the maga sulla guy becomes our next CM indeed, of course he’s going to be sulla still, but still the decision making is confined to the limits of Karnataka, and its citizen(s). We put in our efforts to make this sulla-kalla pair (or whoever is going to replace them) to work for us, and we have a self-satisfying govt. not depending/waiting on a higher-voice to command them.
So, this way the local side is better than the national side!
Our leaders need to serve us, not their system-made superiors sitting afar!
Interesting debate on roll-call rani and the (K)annada (R)oll Call (V)edike. Thanks churmuri. Politicians live on roll calls. It is not news but it is pity that Kannada needs roll-call shooras for its protection…..Says volumes about Kannada and Kannadigas…god save Kannadaambe
You are almost right except we need stronger and more ethical local parties. This “Kalla Sulla” have no excuse not even a fig leaf. In fact the moronic Devegowda has systematically reduced all progressive projects of Karnataka into his own unique imbecility. Here are some examples:
1. Pegging back of Bangalore Int’l Airport by a few years and now it is coming up at a place not so useful!
2. Asinine opposition to NICE project that was actually sanctioned or went underway when the Sr. Retard was the CM!
3. Opposing Bangalore Circular Railway by offering frivolous objections.
4. Selling of Rajyasabha seats to outsiders
5. Haven’t bothered to provide any sort of improvement in Bangalore and other cities infrastructure.
These are only a few examples. The list is even longer. However moronic and imbecile our leaders are other parties, they have done a better job. Except for handing out prime lands in Bangalore environs and mishandling Cauvery dispute SMK did a good job! Just because SMK received inputs from elsewhere, the man still has something to show. Instead this cunning III-rate turd Gowda is using some British-Raj tactics of the ole district collector camping on the grounds of a village and shit like that in the name of “Grama Vashavvya”–it is a pathetic way of governance by the Jr. Retard who enjoyed it so much he had to have a bypass to accommodate all the free food and liquour he consumed during his days of power.
Now you tell me what good is it to have local ‘brains’ to solve our problems? KRV is doing that ‘auditing’ now–their methods are not pretty but the time is long gone for such niceties.
If Karnataka politicians cared for their people, we would not have had this discussion in first place. Because of the failure of these power hungry and HighCommand feet lickers, we are in a sorry state today. Kannadigas are losing their land in the name of development. Companies who benefit by getting all the resources of the land hire mostly Non-kannadigas saying that Kannadigas are not skilled enough to get those jobs. These same companies provide even low skilled jobs like security, janitors, gardeners etc to out of state people. Central Government provide more than 90% of jobs in Karnataka to out of state people saying that they recruitment is done at the national level. Laloo Prasad Yadav, being a cabinet minister in the Union Government has more concern for his own people than the power hungry politicians of Karnataka have for their own people. Tejaswini Gowda is no innocent person. She is eyeing for a very good post in the AICC and want to be in the good books of her God Fathers at the centre. Hence she doesn’t care to what happens to poor people in her own constituency Kanakapura which is the biggest constituency in India. People following her know that she is no different from any other unfit Congress politician from karnataka who doesn’t have the guts to raise their voice against their bosses in Delhi for the sake of justice for the people who voted them. Sorry to see how ignorant kannadigas are supporting these unfit politicians.

This Tejamma is a Mtaru – Drohi, Kannada-Drohi MP. I am just calling everybody to boot this lady & send her out of Karnataka. This nonsecence Congress still keeps mum… Shame on them… Really shame on everyone who are supporting this characterless woman called Tejaswini. She is like Meer Sadiq to Tippu, Mallappa Shetty to Kittur Chennamma. She is Anti Kannada Kannadiga Karnataka & always works against humanity. So its our duty to kick out this low cadered woman & also this Matru-Drohi Congress out of karnataka
ಅಯ್ಯಯ್ಯಪ್ಪೋ, ನಾನು ದೇವರಾಣೆಗೂ ಜನತಾದಳ(ಎಸ್)ದವನ್ನು ಅಂತ confuse ಮಾಡ್ಕೋಬೇಡಿ. ಆ ದೇವೇಗೌಡರಿಗೂ ಈ ಚಂದ್ರಪ್ಪ ಗೌಡರಿಗೂ ‘no relation’… ಹ್ಹ ಹ್ಹ ಹ್ಹ.
When i was writing that comment only one ‘ಗಾದೆ’ was in my mind “ಕುರುಡುಗಣ್ಣಿಗಿಂತ ಮೆಳ್ಳಗಣ್ಣು ಲೇಸು”.
Infact, Ideology of JDs (do they have?) is less harm kul to KKK compared to both leftists & Rightists.
We need a party with its phylosophy being centred around ‘K-K-K’ and which can give some good governance.
In my opinion either JDs should change itself or KRV should get into politics.
van human speaks up por pive krore Kannadigas — this title would have made tejaswini happy.. She and her pathetic kannada,, kanakapurada jana baala karune ullavaru,,, intha sogaladi na dilli ge aarisi kalasiddare..
Recently I read a paper article where it was mentioned that she has threatened locals near RT Nagar over a land dealing. E vamma, avala, avala hasu-bendu seri maadiro golmaal gaLu bejaan ivey.
intha maangettavalanna aarsida tappige jana ekkada tagondu tammanna taave hodkobeku.
alla swamy,, Railway vishayadalli kannadigarige anyaya-da bagge sariyaada saakshi idey, ashtadru e vamma KRV yavaru maadiddu tappu anthalalla ,, mudde muridu baayigallade innelige idtaale? Thu,, intha nachige-gedi gaLaige rajakiya annodu shuddha kasubu…
KRV horata-da haadi shantiyuta vaagirali antha heLtiralla swamy,, avala mane munde kutu dharani maadidre avalu bandu namma janarige anyaya aagide antha opptiddla??
jananige maatina pettu,, konanige latte pettu sar !!
If Balu or Velu, or whatever his name is, has the nerve to say in Bangalore that Kannadigas have not been wronged by his ministry and that he or Lallu has not favored Biharis or Tamils in doling out jobs in our Kannada Nadu, what good has KRV done? Unless Kannadigas respect that outfit, nothing it does will change the unhappy situation of Kannada or Kannadigas.
Marting Luther King brought life in the southern U. S. to a standstill through his non-cooperation techniques learned from our own Gandhi. He forced America to look at its inhumane treatement of black people. Can Kannadigas give up rail travel for three days just to show their disgust?
What was that horrendous message in Kannada when the President of India inaugurated a new train service?
Is Kannada back on interstate trains leaving or coming to Karnataka?
The old question: What have our MPs, Congress or non-Congress, said in response to the minister’s claim?
whatever balu or velu say, matter of fact is that railways have postponed the current recruitment and will start afresh after sometime. the message that kannadigas will not take all this shit from velu or laloo is NOW clear to the people in delhi. it is because of the protests by krv that this message has been understood by the central govt. this is not just a message for the railway ministry but to all ministries run by central govt that kannadigas will not take it lying down. and it is only because of the protests by krv that this has happened.
Tejaswini is a very a dangeroud land mafia. She operater very intellegently as she knows the loops in the Law and takes the maximum advantage of whatever political power she has.
She has successfully grabbed many lands in the the Bangalore north, especially places like Nagashettyhalli, Kodigehalli etc. She makes forged papers in the he relatives names, brother .
She tagets alnds of the weaker section people expecially working calss people (lower & middle class people) who cannot retailate against her power. when people invest their hard earned money and about begin constructions, she sends goondas to attack & harress them.
Most of the time she succesfully grabs the land or settle for negotiation out of the court for a huge cash. It basically a money extortion racket.
hence it’s very important for people ot unite and unmask her devious plot of looting people
