More proof that it takes a lot to get him down

As he gets off the stage at a convention of areca nut growers in Sullia taluk, Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa—whose has artfully survived efforts to dislodge him by his party MLAs, by his party high command, by the opposition, by the governor, by the media, by the courts—shows that it takes a superhuman effort to get him down.

    “..super human effort to get him down”? Hey! Hold your horse. Anna Hazare is on his way to Bangalore for his Pehli Sabha. Read the below paragraph from

    “In that case, what did he feel about B S Yeddyurappa? Anna wasn’t aware of the controversy surrounding the Karnataka CM, and had to be briefed on it at some length by fellow activist Arvind Kejriwal. The moment Kejriwal stopped, Anna had a response ready. “Apni pehli sabha wahi bithayenge (we’ll have our first session there”), he quipped. That’s bad news for the CM.”

    Its finally OFFICIAL, our Karnataka is rampant witj illegal mining and corruption with ‘active’ connivance of government officials and elected representatives,: Supreme Court-appointed Central Empowered Committee (CEC)

    Key question: Will the RSS dodo’s lead by a trader change the state leadership although the party is now definitely doomed in Karnataka and south India.

    Not been exercising those knees, Mr CM??

    Curiously enough, less than a week ago, when asked as to what made him make promises of crores so often and in so large quantities apart from his family’s obsession with real estate, Yeddi had admitted to being, in Kannada terminology, a ‘BogaLedaasa’ (a boastful braggard). He said that while real estate was a weakness, he had a tendency to make promises in crore’s and then find it hard to pool-up the resources to keep them.

    Despite the admission, during his latest, day-long visit to the South Kanara district, involving Sullia, Puttur, Punacha and Mangalore by helicopter (since the pathetic roads are not safe anymore while the Blr-Mlr highway has vanished), and return journey to the state capital by a special flight, costing the public exchequer not less than a crore in a short span of 12 hours, the CM offered Rs 1 crore to the Mahishamardini temple for dining hall and auditorium, at a small village called Punacha.
