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.
