Why was Halady Srinivas Shetty Hurt?


Narayana Swamy
Daijiworld Media Network

Kundapur / Bangalore, Jul 13: Halady Srinivas Shetty, a loyal BJP man who defeated J P Hegde (currently Udupi - Chikmagalur MP) by a record margin in the 2008 state assembly poll, is considered the 'Vajpayee' of Udupi as he hardly has enemies in politics.  The three-time MLA had never gone beyond his power, but sincerely worked for the betterment of his people. His personal charisma is such that he could win the election even if he were to contest as an independent candidate.

On Wednsday July 10, MLAs from coastal region recommended his name for Shettar's ministry, though he was not keen to take up any ministry in the government. But later on Wednesday evening, former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda personally called him over the phone and asked him to start for Bangalore, as his name had been included in the list of ministers. Gowda asked him to be present at the oath taking ceremony on Thursday 12 noon.

Convinced by his people and the district MLAs, he went to Bangalore along with his supporters. He was assured that official invitation would be given to him by the state intelligence by Thursday morning.

What hurt him was that he was with his friend, MLC Srinivas Poojary, who is now a minister in the Shettar government. Until 11.15 am on Thursday, both were together but Poojary never discussed anything about the ministry. At 11.15 am, Halady received a message from a party member that he would not be included in the ministry, and instead, Srinivas Poojary would be inducted. It is not clear still, whether Poojary had prior information or not, but for the sake of formality Poojary told Shetty, "If you agree with it, I will take oath, otherwise I will skip."

Shetty did not react, but he was already dejected. He turned emotional and cried, as he could not believe what had just happened. It was a great insult to him, as his family and supporters were already in Bangalore in large numbers to witness his golden moment. MLAs from coastal region tried to console him, but Shetty continued to cry. Other MLAs and Shetty's well-wishers requested Poojary not to take oath, and asked him to boycott the ceremony.

But Shetty's friend eventually ditched him, and without listening to anyone, Poojary quietly reached Raj Bhavan and took oath as a minister in the Shetter cabinet.

The rest is history. Kundapur BJP supporters and the Vokkaliga community in the coastal region reacted strongly to this 'last minute ditch' and insult to Halady, and organized a massive protest immediately. A successful bandh was also called on Friday.

"I am humiliated. Why did my party do this to me? What was my mistake? I have never been identified in any group. When there was group politics in Bangalore, I was quietly serving my people back home. I never asked or wanted the ministry from my party, I was happy the way I was, but then why did they call me to Bangalore and offer a berth? I cannot tolerate this insult. I am hurt, my people are hurt, my entire constituency is hurt," said Halady speaking to Daijiworld on Friday.

Armed with his resignation, he went meet bpeaker Bopaiah on Friday noon, but he had to return as the speaker was not available in his office. Sectretary of the legislative assembly declined to accept his resignation, as it does not come under his purview.

"I am firm in my decision, until now no leaders contacted me or asked my people's pain. I think there is no meaning in continuing as MLA. I would be happy to serve my people even without the MLA tag," he told Daijiworld.

    Mr.Sudhakar,

    Srinivas poojari is a back stabber and everyone know abt it..Let him contest in BJP ticket in Kundapur and u will get to know it by the huge margin in which he will get defeated.. Moreover he was there with Srinivasanna till the last minute and ran away after he got to know that he is been given a portfolio. He didnt even listen to other BJP MLA's advice not to take oath on that day...

    Its very unfortunate! I hope BJP will loose his all remaining 4 seats in udupi, if HSS contested as independant candidate. He has huge suporters in byndoor, karkala, udupi and kapu. so they definetly against BJP in the coming assembly!!! Bad luck BJP! Lost a Honest PERSON in coastal politics. All the best..Seeing HSS as Independant MLA in next election.

    All of you, just see the support from all corners to HSS. Whether BJP, Congress, JD(U) or any of any other party, know exactly who is HSS and what he is. A person with a character, a true character, not possible for any of these corrupt people even to get near him. All of you see the accolades showered on him, for his honesty, for his helpful nature, never involved in any scams, working for the people - people just love him -
    But not BJP - BJP does not like him, because he is too straight, because he is a man for all category of people, helping/solving their problems. All those BJP people are scared of his honesty, which will hinder their dishonest activities. Hence
    HSS was abandoned at the last moment and was not inducted in the Ministry.
    Now that very corrupt Law minister Suresh Kumar comes for a talk with him. That S Kumar actually should kiss HSS feet, that too he is not fit enough.
    This shows how BJP is so jittery with the mistake they made with HSS. Hope the people will realise how BJP do not need honest workers in their party.
    I hope and pray that HSS will be re-elected from what ever party he chooses to contest (no doubt abt his victory) and request the people to vote diligently in the next election.
    Three cheers to HSS

    Dr. Kamath,

    You are commenting that "poojary wants to make his service bigger and bigger".

    Did he expresed this personally to you or you are just imagining this impossible task for the state ministers in a dark room.

    In the near future, within next two months, which considered to be usual in last four years of BJP rule, resort politics will begin and so called BJP MLAs and ministers will be looking for bigger and bigger service for themselves and their followers. What a waste of state reosurecs at the cost of common people.

    Haladi Srinivas Shetty should resign and stand as an independent candidate. The Party will not dare to put official candidate against him. He should not join any other party but unite leaders like him all over Karnataka, even from various parties to float a new party whom people of Karnataka can trust.

    It was also stated in news that BSY personally picked Poojary from Legistative House.

    Since DVS had personally invited HSS to Bangalore, DVS should have called or visited HSS personally to explain what happened and why this situation came up.

    The party leaders from twin districts are not showing their concerns on representation in the adminstartion. Looks like they are busy opening one of 500 plus the THODU foot bridge announced by Coastal Development Authority recently.

    It is ridiculous to see some people inviting him to join congress. Everyone has seen congress attitude. Being in opposition party, they are pulling each others legs like anything. Imagine if they are voted to power. There will be two CMs and 3 DCMS and 5 Home ministers and 31 KPCC presidents for 31 districts.

    Shetty has submitted resignation letter to secretary of speaker Bopaiah this afternoon. He will withdraw his resignation tomorrow as senior leaders will pacify him. Everything will be settled amicably. Congis no need to worry too much about this.

    I want clear one point here. J. P. Hegde is my favorite politician since  decades. No one else can be compared to him. Hegde has independently won Brahmavara constituency. During last election Brahmavara constituency was removed and Hegde has to compete from Kundapura which was a strong hold of Haladi. There is nothing special in it.

    Now people of Kundapura too know Mr. Hegde, recent MP election is living example. Both belong same community and have done the best during their tenure. God bless them. I feel Haladi Shrinivas shetty too is good to be in congress as he is full congress values. Hegde too has offer from BJP but he did not joined bcz he knew BJP devide n rule policy.

    Millioons of his supporters are the proof of his popularity and the good works done by him so far.Unfortunately he beleived in wrong political party , In fact he dosnt need any party.

    It is 100% sure that he will win the seat even if he contest as an Independent candidate. His supporters never considered on which party he belongs.
    I wish him good luck on whatever he do in the future.

    He is a straight guy, perhaps not fit for current politics.

    AG Kodgi wants his chamchas, being a former CONgressman, he likes that culture,,, so he changed last name by his tricks....

    Anyway BJP is digging its own grave by doing all these things...they did the same during Janata Party days...nothing has changed and they never learnt any lessons....

    shahnawaz kukkikatte, dubai/udupi...I most of the time apprciate your views or comments on most of the topics in Daiji. However I felt sad by reading what you penned down about your opinion on HSS in the news before this about Kundapur Bandh, that too you being a neighbour of Kundapur. Now your veiw is yours and nobody can force change it, but I believe either you dont not know Halady Srinivas shetty and his "Ajaatha Shathru" Image in his constituency or that blind image you guys have about BJP that all are same like Yeddi & Renuka you are having within you.
    If HSS was opportunist, you could have heard revolt from him long back when his contribution to BJP was due to be rewarded long back not now. Have you ever heard HSS in news that too for wrong reasons. With 4 consecutive wins you hear about him only during election nomination & during counting. All the othertime he is sailently working in his consituency with his best honesty & Itegrity. Even some of my relatives are frustated that he is not allowing them to enjoy any favors especially while allocating Govt tenders. All they get for being with him 24/7 is w meals at his place. They say he doesnt make any money nor does he allows us to. This is Mr Shirinivas shetty Halady for you.
    He is not opportunist, eshwrappa & MP Ragavendra & Yediruapppa himself told HSS to get ready fo swearing in yesterday for which he was happy yes but nevere lobbyed. For this reason he has some of his close mens including my relative he took to Bangalore to witness this special moment, but got BAMBU at the last moment from BJP. He felt insulted more that letdown. Trust me he is not opportunist

    Playing with emotions are completely inhuman and dangerous.BJP party admin in Karnataka or in Delhi not going as per precedents or justice.Constitution & Rules of party is flouted frequently to accommodate YES SIRS and caste/community based politics are taking priorities.A last minute ditching for person like HALADY S.Shetty is shocking and like adding salt to the injury.

    Highly respected Mr. Halady was deliberately insulted and was made hurt. Deliberate wounds are difficult to heal with a self-respected person who lived for his people and never compromised with bends to his image. He never lingered upon Ministership birth nor never indulged in lobby making Politics nor did he wanted to identify with himself rival parties with poli tactics.
    He left for Bangalore with the invitation from leaders of the Party. But they insulted him. To express the biasness meted out to him his thoughtful decision to tender his resignation is speaks about his outright character.
    I always compare with him A.K, Antony as far as selfless image and clean governance . Local MLA's and ever smiling MP Nalin Kumar without self-seeking must come forth with their full support for the common insult-punishment meted out for the coastal belt.

    Mr.Srinivas Shetty never has been a person who wanted to be in the limelight. He lives to serve the people, no matter if he is or not a Minister. A person of such integrety has been let down by his own party & a few people so called friends.
    Making him a minister would have saving grace for the BJP since they bogged down to pressure from yeddy. Still end of the day, BJP has lost all its moral value with the people. I am sure if DVS continued as our CM & if Mr.Halady was made a minister, the BJP would have gained a lot of lost ground. Now they are misers & will never get the support of the people. They chose only instant moment to be in power, but forgot that this will ruin them in the long run.
    Congress being useless in the center and the BJP corrupt in the state, we the voters are left with no choice but to abstain from voting. Every party is as corrupt than the other.
