Ministry Expansion

About the expansion of his ministry that has been in limbo since long, Yediyurappa said that he has already discussed the issue with national president of the party, Amit Shah, and that the ministry expansion will happen once he returns to the city from Davos.

The CM termed the media reports which have painted a gloomy picture about the ministry expansion as outright false. "There are no hitches for the ministry expansion. It will happen once I come back by the end of this week," he asserted.

    On the one hand, we are trying to woo foreign investors and on the other, we are bringing in unwanted and unnecessary laws that lead to unrest in the country. People are out on the streets demanding a rollback of the recently introduced nonsensical NRC and CAB and no peace loving investor would want to invest in a country where created problems keep cropping up every now and then. Who would like to invest in such an environment? Modi has been going around the world - he visited several countries more than once - spending lavishly on his foreign tours and how much foreign investment has come into the country? Foreigners are closely following the unfortunate developments taking place in India and it should come as no surprise if investment dries up in the days to come. You can't have the best of both worlds. Modi has to decide whether he wants foreign investment or if he wants Hinduvta. It is either of them, not both.

    Honge raaje raajakunvar ham
    Bigade dil shahazaade
    Ham sinhaasan par ja baithe
    Jab jab karen iraade
    Surat hai jaani pahachaani, duniya waalon ko hairaani
    Sar pe laal topi rusi, phir bhi dil hai hindustaani.
