What next?

The resignation of Mr. Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of Karnataka has once again put the brakes on the smooth functioning of the government. What next one wonders? Will it be yet another government that is formed on loose agreements or will it be the President’s rule or will it take us to the elections?

This time around everybody seems to be fed up of Mr. Gowda, including his party men. What is he truly up to? For an ordinary citizen who just reads about all these developments in the newspapers, it is always a case of a sigh followed by a comment. Both the sigh & the comment is made knowing fully well that nothing much can be done about this. The recent developments in government formation in Karnataka are a clear example of the state of affairs of politics in our country. People who contest elections are doing so more for themselves than for the common man or the society at large.

Can all the parties involved in the latest ‘tamasha’ care to explain to the public at large what is happening? Can they explain why we are all being taken for a ride? Can people who are agreeing to support a government at one time explain why they are backing out?
How about some transparency in all these “I will support you” & then “I don’t want to support you” decisions that people here are making so easily.

Its understood that Coalition politics is here to stay. However what is unacceptable is this style of functioning. It will be extremely disappointing if yet another coalition government is formed like this. It is about time that the Governor, the Central government or who ever else get involved & stop things from getting worse. Hopefully people who are mute spectators today will remember these developments as it happened & give their fitting response on the voting day.

    Thousands of miles away from Blr, I can help but be saddened by this turn of events. Should we continue to remain the hapless & helpless citizens just watching this natak always!

    Coalition has become a farce and leaders are viewed as a laughingstock and jokers. The coalition dharma is reduced to a stamp-paper level agreement stage by JD (S), which of late many are referring to as JD (Sons!) party. Incidentally, insisting on a stamp-paper agreement shows the degree of trust JD(S) has in the Lotus party.

    Backstabbing is not new to JS(S). Earlier, it backstabbed Dharma Singh-led Congress. This time round Kumaraswamy-led JD(S)faction ditched BJP.

    One comes across Drithrashtras everywhere in the Indian political diaspora. Ans also few Yudhistrars. After all blood is thicker than water.

    Karnataka voters have amply showed their mature thinking that they cannot absolutely trust politicians and parties by giving them landslide and absolute majorities in elections, knowing full well the rank crooks in politics in the country today. They have only given fratured mandates leaving the parties on a tight leash. If at all, the parties have ditched the people.

    BJP on its part should have learnt the lesson much before when Kumaraswamy parted ways with his father and alinged with it with his JD(S) faction. It was to be expected, knowing full well senior Gowda’s political manipulative skills and born aversion to saffron party.

    `aatavu mugitu tantiyu haritu’ as the wellknown Kannada saying goes. Consensus and all that blabbering by leaders and parties is pure, unadulterated bullshit. It is rank powermongering.

    the former prime minister is very keen to establish a dynasty rule in Karnataka and the State is suffering because of his whims and fancies. It is in the hands of the electorate to rectify this defect and bring in a stable democratic government, be it Congress or BJP!!

    In my opinion there should be some constitutional clauses which should restrict these politicians to play with the trust with which we elect them.

    First, elections are definitely on as both the BJP and the Congress are fed-up with Gowda. However, I am not sure what the outcome of the elections would be. I was under the belief that JDS and BJP would go for a toss in the upcoming elections and the Congress would easily come to power. That, in a way would be beneficial to the state. As the Congress is in power in the center, if the state govt is an ally/same party as that in the center, the benefits for the state are quite large. But what worries me is the fact that while we at Bangalore are pissed with whats happening, I am not sure if the issue has even been noticed in the villages of Karnataka. Given that the villages in karnataka constitute the majority of the populace, I am not certain that JDS/BJP would be overthrown.
