CHURUMURI POLL: Should S.M. Krishna resign?

As the nation’s external affairs minister, Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna knows that it is a small world he lords over—what goes around, comes around. So just months after he threatened to sue The Times of India, Bangalore, for suggesting that he was involved in the illegal mining scam comes news that he has indeed been named in a first information report (FIR) for issuance of mining licences during his tenure as the chief minister of Karnataka.

With all the faux sophistication he can muster, S.M. Krishna denies the charge. But for a Union government that is  trying to stave off a crisis involving another minister (P. Chidambaram) whom his detractors have tried to implicate in the 2G scam, the naming of Krishna comes at a particularly inopportune time. Krishna, for his part, says his “legal team” will take appropriate action at the appropriate time, but the Opposition has smelt blood.

With B.S. Yediyurappa having had to resign in the wake of the Lok Ayukta indictment in the mining scam, and having had to spend a fortnight in the cooler on the basis of a “private complaint”, the question is going to asked, why should not Krishna resign till he is proven innocent? Will Krishna’s protestations of no loss to the government, or no gains for himself, convince the BJP? Is a private compliant all it takes to bring people in power down?

And, tongue firmly in cheek, if Krishna quits, who is going to read the Portuguese speeches for the UPA?

    Hahahaha. Good line, Churumuri

    If some one explains to Krishna in English (since he may not understand Kannada) about this reasonable expectation from people he may resign.

    On a sidenote, private parties with ulterior motives who misuse judiciary should be severely punished. People are filing complaints left and right nowadays.
    . Vidya Balan sent a court notice for being dirty,
    . Modi being sent a notice for talking against a 'ಸೂಪರ್ ಪುಕ್ಲ' on his birth anniversary,
    . against Somanna for denotifying,
    . against Yeddi's bail in Supreme court. The person who did this and wasted court's money (that means my money as I am teh taxpayer supporting courts) should be punsihed.
    . against Poonam Pandey for offering to strip. (Hey Indians are redsovering kamasutra, that is how you rediscover the lost valour also)

    Coming back to Krishna, yes why not? If Congress has any moral fibre left they should sack him pending investigation. he is also in power and can influence proceedings and so should be jailed. Why "ಒಂದು ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಸುಣ್ಣ ಒಂದು ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ'? In English for S M Krishna that means 'what is sauce for the BJP goose is sauce for the Congress gander'.

    The question is whether any complaint by a private person can bring people in power down ?. The simple answer is if the judge satisfies himself that a strong case exists against the accused and records the reason for the same, then the answer is in the affirmative .

    Is indictment same as FIR?

  4. harkol Says:

    He must’ve been asked to resign after he goofed up big time reading the wrong text! High time he retired.

    besides, all these ministers seem to think holding on to Ministership is a right.. Its only a selective privilege to serve dammit. If you are under serious suspicion/investigation you should be out. It doesn’t need to be proved.

  5. Pulikeshi the Last Says:

    Dream on, Churumuri. If every politician accused of wrongdoing were to resign, the only outfit ruling India would be its armed forces, which, too, by the way, are not free from making an extra rupee on the sly.

  6. Brahmanyan Says:

    If any one has discharged his duty (say, denotification) according to the powers allowed to him, where is the question of a crime. Even in the case of Mr.Yeddurappa the order of Lok Ayukta is questionable. Nepotism is not new to Indian Politics. It is there from the days of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

  7. shankar Says:

    it would be interesting to see how Parameshwar & siddu of cong react to this. Ugrappa & company were shouting from roof top that Yeddyurappa has to resign as FIR was registered against him. Now that Krishna & Dharam singh are in same boat, Congress should ask Krishna to step down till his name is cleared . Parameshwar is also silent on action against D K SHI , who has also benefited from denotification.

  8. A Journalist Says:

    Private complaint is the most abused legal provision. It should be scrapped. Tomorrow, somebody can lodge a complaint against churumuri for calling Yeddyurappa a mere Yeddy! What goes around, comes around for everybody.

  9. Venkatarama Muthuswami Says:

    Forget about SMK’s personal integrity. On that parameter, none from Sonia down to the lowly Chaprasai at Sonia MMS Inc will qualify to remain where they are, making all of us suckers!

    The question is: Has the SMK guy professionally endowed to be senior minister as FM? Seeing his goofing around from UN to any international platform, nothing seems working, nor anything real about him incl. the lock of hair on his top.

    This democracy supports all kinds of Non-Performers at the cost of tax payers. How long are we going to tolerate this non-sense?
