How BJP turned Karnataka politics into a cartoon

Cartoonists and headline writers are having a field day as BJP government in its so-called “Gateway to the South” turns a fine and civilised State into the butt of jokes across the nation.

Six ministers charged of corruption: B.S. Yediyurappa, G. Janardhana Reddy, G. Karunakara Reddy, B. Sriramulu, Ramachandre Gowda, Katta Subramanya Naidu.

One minister charged of molestation of a friend’s wife: Hartaalu Halappa.

One minister of molestation of a nurse: M.P. Renukacharya.

One ex-minister in denotification scam: S.N. Krishnaiah Shetty.

Three ministers charged of watching porn: Laxman Savadi, C.C. Patil, Krishna Palemar.

    ನೀವು ಕರೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ಸಚಿವರು ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ಮಾನ ಮರ್ಯಾದೆ ಹರಾಜು ಹಾಕಿದ ಕಾರಣ ನಿಮಗೆ ಈ ಸೂಚನೆ ನೀಡಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ: ಪೋಲಿ ರಅಜಕಾರಣಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಮತ ನೀಡಬೇಡಿ.

    I am a grad student in the U.S. and am having a tough time hearing all the digs at our ministers and politicians. This has really tarnished the State’s image. Though politicians from non-BJP parties too have extra-marital affairs, no one was so perverted as to watch a porno on the floor of the House. This is the height of immorality. And, the worst part is, this scam was noticed only minutes after the following incident happened:

    So sad that our ministers have turned so thick-skinned and igrnorant. These stupid idiots even tried to block the distribution of newspapaers in this era of Internet!!

    “”ಮಾನ ಮರ್ಯಾದೆ ವ್ಯಾಪ್ತಿ”!! Ha ha ha! indeed! But, what is the point of trying after sometime? They will not come within the limit. They are lost causes.

    One is a real-estate mafia of Mangalore. His activities in past 20 years haven’t been above board. He continues to ask if someone sent MMS to my phone how am I responsible, without finding the irony in him not complaining to police and asking for an investigation.

    His friends in the meanwhile claim he provided them the video saying this is what happens in ‘rave parties’. hmm..!!

    liers? Outside the scope of shame??

  5. asha Says:

    Amul Ad as usual rocks !!

  6. Pulikeshi the Last Says:

    Our ethical use of technology is dismal everywhere.

  7. chidu22 Says:

    The idiocy of these three MLAs is a reflection of the standard of the representatives in the state. Karnataka has always been backward among the southern states in all spheres thanks to our shameless and spineless politicians. They were so timid that they bent backwards to accomodate their political bosses i.e.congress in the past and now BJP. The education standards of the Karnataka ministers has always been questionable. They have remained insular, lack exposure and as a result are uncomfortable outside their state. Bickering within self. There is no one in the state politics who can speak with authority at any level. Hence, the rot as set in and today it has come to this pass when we have become the laughing stock of the entire world. Although we boast of many professional colleges in the country, a city of the nature of Bengalur as our state capital we the locals newer utilised them properly nor raised the standards of these education institutes. Many due to their connection with these institutions only managed to get degrees but not education. They have been used as cash cows attracting students from other states completely out of sync with the idea of its founding fathers. Unless these trends are reversed we are doomed.

    What a starved lot can do? BJP workers & leaders in south and elsewhere are suffering from starvation.Yes, i call it starvation due to money, power, sex, education,civilised behaviour and decent norms in public life.Congress & other political parties have the same problem.Evertone is greedy and wants to become rich in all aspects in the shortest possible time.

  9. kris Says:

    Include Anant Kumar and Neera Radiia, Sushma Swaraj and Reddy brothers.

    Do you know Amul’s advertising agency, creative director of these ads?

  10. babuds Says:

    In a public place, such as the State Assembly, they keep themselves busy by watching videos of rape and murder. In private God knows what they do. Probably their interests lie in “child development” .scenes rather than schemes. Which woman can safely approach such woman development ministers? All political parties give first preference to lumpen and scamsters while distributing tickets and ministries. The hapless voter has no choice but to chose between the devil and the deep sea.

  11. GowdaFan Says:

    Amul ads rocks. Awesome!

    We need people like Leno, Letterman and Jon Stewart who can skewer these a-holes , the so called ‘leaders’, from all parties and all castes to enlighten the masses


    i think what we need is political reforms in the state . Most of the politicians who represent in the state are morally and politically unfit to rule the state . Curruption ,sex scandals, land grabbing has become the order of the day . Wake up citizens . It is shame . Do not let these rogue politicians destroy vaibahava Karnataka .

  13. Dinesh Bhat Says:

    We in Karnataka are frustrated with BJP. We voted for BJP because we thought Congressmen are thieves. Now we have realized that BJP MLA’s, MLC’s, Corporators, Councillers and Panchayat members are dacoits. They loot from the common man. When Congress was ruling, every valentines day, we would see protests and demonstrations. When they are in power, there is no whisper. When Congress was ruling Baba Budangiri is a dispute. When BJP is ruling there is no dispute. These BJP politicians are third rate ba….ds. Even God will not forgive them. Previously, to win elections, they used to utter “Rama, Rama, Rama”. After winning, they utter “Kaama, Kaama, Kaama”. Only Yogish Bhat from Mangalore, V.S. Acharya from Udupi and Suresh Kumar from Bangalore are decent, dignified and intelligent. Unfortunately Acharya is dead. If Karnataka has to prosper vote out BJP.

    Please Think!!! Please help us to make this Country a Corruption Free Nation:
    Since the time we got independence, political parties which have ruled us made a mess of our country in the name of democracy. The problems which existed before Independence have worsened. Our politicians have been looting our nation and hiding their illegal wealth in foreign banks. They have turned our economy upside down to achieve their selfish goals. If this situation continues, the next generations will have nothing left. These politicians promise so many things in their election manifesto to improve lot of backward classes, farmers, and workers, but once they get power, they forget that they are public servants and engage themselves in corruptn. The very person who elected them has to bribe them to get his work done & which is the duty of the public servant to do. PLEASE THINK!!! Should we allow the same thing to continue? If this continues, only the family members of politicians will lead a happy life in our country. Poverty and unemployment will become unsolvable problems. Education for poor students is becoming a nightmare as even the educational institutions are run by the politicians. Why should our farmers support political parties which are real estate lobbies? They earn in millions and billions while the farmers sell their land for a pittance and lose their livelihood. Why don’t we support a regional party that encourages agriculture? Why don’t we elect educated youngsters between 25 years and 30 years who have a real urge to serve the society and who are honest? By doing this, we can bring a change in our society. We can help them get funds for their election and this is only for the bright future of our children. Let us boycott the corrupt politicians, let us struggle for freedom once again, freedom from corruption and freedom from the corrupted.

    Let us build a stronger nation, let us build a stronger India Kamalakar – 9880088663
