Editorial in the Hindustan Times, Delhi:
“Nothing like quoting William Shakespeare to get poor Haradanahalli Doddegowda Deve Gowda out of a fix. The English bard in King Lear had written with noticeable cadence, “Degenerate bastard, I’ll not trouble thee…. By calling B.S. Yediyurappa a “bloody bastard” and the more colourful term “bosudi maga” (that our sources say translates into “son of a bitch”), we simply feel the need to relook at our relationship with swear words.
“The fact that H.D. Deve Gowda’s language was ‘unparliamentary’ doesn’t cut much ice. He wasn’t in Parliament, a place where people have made a tradition of turning far more aggressive than by hurling abuse. Yediyurappa, a polite manner who probably thinks of the words ‘bloody nonsense’ when he is really, really angry was understandably upset. By demanding that documents be furnished that would prove that he is an ‘illegitimate child’ — something that he isn’t — he showed how hurt he was.”

Editorial in Deccan Herald:
“The choicest epithets hurled by Deve Gowda against Yediyurappa on Sunday mirrored the sad state of affairs in the country’s polity. The language employed by Gowda is at odds with his stature. Arguably, he is a father figure in Karnataka politics, a former chief minister and most significantly a former prime minister. He should be setting examples in correct political conduct.
“With half-a-century of political life behind him, Gowda is expected to raise the bar of political decorum, not to lower it…. No person in public life, let alone Gowda, can use such abusive language against anyone. Gowda has let himself down, badly. In the process, he has done great harm to the polity as such behaviour by people who held top positions can only strengthen public cynicism about today’s political class.”

Devegowdre, neevu retire agi haradanahalli manege hogi kootkoli… Gowda jaathi mana maryaade tegibedi
hahah, amusing headline… but i think King Lear’s original quote is hyperbolic: It contains an exclamation mark — as in, “Degenerate bastard! I’ll not trouble thee”.
For a person who had RK Hedgdes house attacked and stoned and had RK Hegde manhandled in the Vidhana Soudha, this is nothing in comparison.
As the kannada saying goes…
Naayina simhasanada mele koorsidare hesige nodi kelagi iliyithu…
Isn’t it Sitaram Kesari, who called DG a Nikamma when DG was the PM. DG is living upto that name even now :)
Under certain circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer– Mark Twain
Our Homa-loving Desperate Drastic Gowda has suddenly discovered the benefits of Ninda (slander) as Bhakti to appease the Gods. Order your DIY Profanity Kit right now! And get a dictionary free. Hurry. Offer Open until stocks last. Even at the risk of being sworn at with the choicest of abuse.
Before the controversy dies down, everyone must read the pretty enlightening remarks and facts sent in by our regular and knowledgeable readers Viz., Tsubba, Jacob Mathews and Khan in here:
All said and done, despite the truth, emotions and language..etc, it is shrewd and absolutely shameless politicians from Yedii to Gowda to Dinakaran’s, ND Tiwari’s and Koda’s that are the ultimate winners in our famed democracy with their ever increasing prosperity and clout with the bureaucracy, judiciary and executive. Despite the RTI act and now tainted Supreme Court, sadly it is the gullible public and poor infrastructure that is always the loser.
This is what Siddaramaiah says

I see another baseless allegation from kavitha here. This allegation is same like benami land of thousand acres…. which every idiots, who allege, know is untrue but hey ..key faraq painda. This is the same tribe who on another time made Rs 3 lakh(or is it 4-5) crores in swiss bank allegation.
Since then I don’t see any cheddi making the same swiss bank allegation. What happened to the nationalist and patriots??? No use of that ruse, I believe now.
Can I expect Kavitha to back the above allegation???
Will she chiken out as before, like benami??
Khan, Substantiate what? About Gowda bashing Ramakrishna Hegde?
What do you expect? An URL? Don’t have any, the web wasn’t a big thing back then.
Check the archives of your favourite newspaper, you will read about a gang led by Kumaraswamy and Revanna dragging out Hegde(who already had his clothes torn by those goons) and thrashing him in broad daylight on the steps of Vidhana Soudha! That reportedly because he refused to step down from CM’s post, did it also involve money? that’s highly probable.
Why is Deve Gowda protesting now? As the progenitor of this grandiose project is he sore that Congress made its dough and BJP is currently making and is innovating more ways to make money of this project and he and his kids got, in comparison, very little!?
Is that why he is indulging in frivolous protests like writing to CJ of Karnataka HC and not actively participating by filing a real writ petition!?
If Deve Gowda all of a sudden winds up all the protests, I’d not be surprised.
There is no point arguing and providing any amount of evidence to Khan aka Hallu daaktru rameshappa. His affinity to his gowda community has blinded him so much that he refuses see the reality and enjoys living in his delusional echo chamber. As the saying goes…
You can wake up a man who is sleeping but you can never wake up a man who is pretending to sleep.
Here is the link you asked for. Read and cry.
But do not for any reason let facts come in the way of your arguments on this board…continue to entertain us ;)
Summane Secular anta hakida koodale, Devegowdru secular agalla.. He is the worst of his tribe. A casteist, banal politician – who can’t see beyond his own immediate short term gain.
Here is an anecdote told to me by someone who was once very close to Gowda. Apparently Deve gowda wasn’t very corrupt in his early politics, and lost lot of money in fighting elections and political affairs etc. When he resigned as a minister in ’87 due to internal janata politcs, he apparently didn’t even have a home to call his own in Bangalore.
But, then he decided to improve the lot of his family, if not of his ‘farmers’. He became totally corrupt and amassed wealth which ever way he can (Devegowda petrol pump was a gift by Narasimha rao, for saving his govt in 93). Today Gowda family wealth stands in thousands of crores. These are facts that are as told by people who knew the man in his Janata days.
If we try telling anyone in Padmanabhanagar that Gowda family doesn’t have thousands of acres of property, and they’d lagh at our naivete.
None of the political parties can afford to be non-corrupt. A district president of any political party needs to spend between 4-5 lakhs a month in organizational effort, more when special events happen. He is expected to raise those funds himself. This is a fact of India. Majority of Politicians are corrupt to the core (Our current CM being no exception – something he even openly acknowledged when he said, he had to do things which people and ethics won’t approve).
This is sad, but these are not baseless. Just facts, that we see everyday. We’d be living in a fantasy land if we believed JD(S) is secular, and BJP is communal and Congress is for common man!! Each are pursuing their own narrow interest. Some appear slightly better than the other at times.

Here is an interesting link to substantiate what you said.
This might help the hallu daaktru to see the reality if at all ;)

So out of 100 people who posted comments on this issue, three people are in favor of politicians wrestling in the mud using words like “bosidi maga” while 97 people are not in favor.
That 97% of educated muddle class still expect decent conduct in politics is both heartening and troubling. It’s troubling because their expectation is out of tune with reality. Fact is, the street-thug class of politicians (which is what the political class is largely made of) has always exhibited this sort of conduct; it’s only now that the media is reporting it, largely for TRP reasons.
I had given up on you as troll, but you brought a link, lets see what it says :
Miscreants attacked the house of Union Commerce Minister Ramakrishna Hegde
Reacting to the attack, Hegde alleged that former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and his two sons were behind the incident.
SO this politicinas accusing each other is proof??? Where are you, in mars?? Isn’t it a routine of this tribe, accusing each other for everything.
Oh, if you inssist, I will provide link, why B.S Yeddiyourappa is B.B Yedyourapp or if you like B.M Yedyurappa. After DG said it on record, so we can pull this anytime who doubt.
You were so reasonable in your post, but why tendency to loose all here :D y
Gowda family wealth stands in thousands of crores. These are facts that are as told by people who knew the man in his Janata days.
IS THIS ALL IT TAKES? facts told by people!!! The only facts I see is, he is being regularly elected as their leader. Mind you, HE are not the CRUTHES OF ANY HIGH COMMAND, in delhi dictating. He is only on the support of the people of karnataka, Al your yeddi, despande et el have to be on their knees in delhi when ever commanded, as they know they are nothing, if not for the party.
Here is an interesting link to substantiate what you said.
Kavitha, giveup, you are confirmed troll. You don’t need to fall to these depths, we heard you, you hate gowda, now feeling good.
Welcom to churmuri, The best place for a healthy conversation on this big bad Net.
So out of 100 people who posted comments on this issue, three people are in favor of politicians wrestling in the mud using words like “bosidi maga” while 97 people are not in favor
Sorry, if I come across as some one who approve of this comments, . What am trying to point out is the “superficial indignation” of of sangh hoodlums. you know the reality, DG was making these in the heat of the moment, seeing the plight of the farmers, who were driven out of their homes. For the gang here, they approve farmers suicide, but not agitation and obstructing development.
If DG, for that matter anyone stands their way, they will do what they can do best, character assassination. DG, has thousands of benami land?? WHy benami land and why not hard currency in swiss bank. Oh he is farmer he need to plugh land… see chatur brahmins@work. Hey why not GOLD, FARMERS ARE SUCKERS FOR THESE ALSO? Hmmm….. ok lets start gowda has tons of GOLD in his holenarsipur home. Quantify it, as people are at loss to figure out. I have not idea how a ton gold looks………… get back to you. Oh he also has a petrol pump.
In recognition of Dirty Devegowda’s easy facility for Kannada language, henceforth and forthwith I am going to call him BM-Shri as in “Bo….-Ma..”-Shree.
I still think Khan, Dental Dhanwantari, Devegowda are all one and the same person.
>You were so reasonable in your post, but why tendency to loose all here
I don’t remove my thinking hat, before posting a message, so I didn’t loose it at all!
I’ll try to elaborate.. Most in political class are rogues, especially the ones who raise up to the top. We can only divide them up as Better, Bad and Ugly. Difference being is where they draw the line in being corrupt.
Better: These folks personally have a level of comfortable life and then personally stop being corrupt (While their organizations continue to be corrupt). Sonia Gandhi, Vajpayee, Advani, Pranab Mukherji, VP Singh, Jyothi Basu, RK Hegde, Moily. MP Prakash, Sushma, Chidambaram, MMS etc. Either they are personally non-corrupt or moderately corrupt but don’t oppose sinister and corrupt practices in their organizations. They are sophisticated in their approach to politics and do spare some reasonable portion of their thoughts on ideology and well being of people.
Bad: These are people whose only purpose in life is self-aggrandizement and nepotism. People like Mayawati, Pramod Mahajan, Yediyurappa, Bangarappa, Jayalalitha, Karunanidhi, YSR, DKS, Lallu Yadav etc. belong to this category. This category wants to make money as if there is no tomorrow and make sure their families are taken care off well.
Ugly: This third class has all attributes of second class and also possesses a crass vulgarity about their public behavior. Good examples of this class are people like DG, Mulayam Singh and Bal/Raj thackerey. These folks don’t hesitate to get down to any level and use any abuse (Verbal and Physical) as part of their trade… This is the most dangerous and repulsive kind of all.
However, You are welcome to believe DG is a god’s gift to man kind and is a paragon of virtues.
plight of the farmers:)
One has to be really gullible or daft to believe DGs assertion about this…
Yesterday NICE released a list of DGs relatives who are getting affected by the BMIC project…so much for DGs crocodile tears for poor farmers
Lookup I already reserved B.M to yeddi officially. sorry u were late.
No offense dear, you seems lost here. I sympathise with you, that u were not able to squeez in modi in your “better” list.
Anyway its all perception, opinion and whom you are identifying yourself.
>No offense dear, you seems lost here. I sympathise with you, that u were not able to squeez in modi in your “better” list.
You sympathize with me! Why? We are all in the same boat!
Your sympathies are better served as self-pity. You seem to be so taken in by DG’s ‘Mosale Kanniru’ about Secularism and seem to be complled to defend DG!!
But, don’t for a minute think I’d stand up to support/defend someone like Modi.
I wouldn’t have squeezed in Modi in the better list… He – I suspect is in a league of his own. He’d have made it to the better list (Being personally non-corrupt), if not for his dangerous agenda of intolerance.
Politics needs the highest degree of tolerance. A good politician is one who is most patient and will listen to Every points of view however un-agreeable they may be, and presents his own point of view, and occasionally accept other point of view if it is found rational. A good politician uses rationality as the basis of his politics. Most importantly, a Good politician is the one who’ll abide by the rules of the game (Constitution).
We DO NOT have ‘good politicians’. Everyone breaks the constitution starting with election funding. But, we have several degrees of Bad & ugly ones. When we vote, we need to choose comparatively better one…
DG falls in to the bottom 5 percentile. It takes some doing to beat him in Ugly list.
I agree this is all perception and Opinion, which are formed on the basis of how the Politicians behave. I am sure there will be guys who’ll revel in rough talk of BB, BM etc. and like DG’s ability to deliver such dialogs better than Movie star Jaggesh…
ya harkol i support u
but the problem is that when it comes to changing a society.
the changes are visible and people talk about it and the news spreads fast and if at all it is done by a politician then it ll be faster…
ex : modi for gujarath.
sm krishna for bangalore.
then if kumaraswamy had done so muck for our state then
where is he in the list ..
no offence but people talk when politicians do good that to in a country like ours where politicians like honerable nanavathi exits
