    Here Nagesh is 100% right..but people are blaming Nagesh for writing some reality of our state during Congress rule ..which is unforutnately not digestable for minority because Congress is always anti-Hindu.

    Guy, take Nagesh Nayak's comments in the spirit of humour. He wants to get attention to whatever he pens. But he forgets that the contents of his writing are highly biased, partial and do not make any sense. NN please keep continue your comedy. DW readers enjoy them.

    I agree with Nagesh Nayak. BJP govy is doing a very good job. If BJP stay in power till it's tenure, definitely Karnataka will become the first corruption less state in India. Those who are caught in this raid accumulated this wealth during the period of Congress and JD Rule. Many more good things to come from BJP just wait and see..

    I am someone who browses the Daiji for local news. Even though I believe in a 'critical' world, the comments of Nagesh Nayak pain me deeply. They are nothing but destructive. Many who used to react to him instinctively have now seemed to have learnt that it is not worth according attention to his words that represents his person in the final bargain. Nagesh Nayak, would you kindly express your criticism constructively so that people remember you for the good person that you are? It is a request.

    Mr. Nagesh Nayak you are absolutely right, all the officials caught here by Mr. Santhosh Hegde are all appointed during the Congress and JDS regime and now they are caught during the BJP regime accepted, now in this case lakhs of tonnes of iron ore is stolen from the port amounting to several thousand crores is also happening during BJP regime, so what do you say for it. By catching small fish and leaving the big whales to roam free what is the govt. trying to prove as the amount caught is only 7.85 crores but what is the fate of several thousand crores, anyway i'm not a follower of any party in-fact we voted and canvased for Mr. Yogish Bhat as we didnt see the party but the person as he was better than Ivan D'souza but we always see Mr. Nayak commenting in such a way that he is a very big campaingner or maybe his heart and soul are all for BJP. Mr. Nayak politics is politics all politicians are the same weather BJP, Congress or JDS dont u think that politicians jump from party to party for their own benifits its we the public who are fools to follow them and finally end up in mess.

    Yes all the Congress/JDS era officials are being raided and kicked out so that BJP era thieves can get those jobs. As long as BJP is financed by the Reddys any talk of eradication of corruption is to give talking points to the brain dead followers of the party. Their main argument seems to be congress did it for 40 years. Now lets do it.

    Well done Lokayukta, you guys target atleast 20 officials monthly. NAGESH NAYAK'S Theory is baseless. All political parties are looking into their own fate. We are selfish guys and feeding milk to these monster babies. Instead of blaming Govt., people should trap these govt officials with unity. Media should support these regional activities which can turn into revolution, only possibility.

    … but Sri Sri Sri Yediyurappaji is controlled by the Bellary mine cartels. How to get the freedom from these three Bellary power horses plus India’s Big sharks like Adani & Co.?
    If he succeeds in eliminating them, his CM Kursi will go. Sri Sri Sri Yediyurappaji is totally confused whether to choose Kursi or ethics.

    Rightly said Nagesh- but their previous accumulations will be rewarded by present govt., to re-instate them back or to promote them after getting all that the present govt. needs-who had made the same thing in the past as well. Rewarding the corrupt & punishing the honest, which resulted in Lok Ayukta resigning in disgust. Don't give the undue credit for unworthy people in saddle.

    THEY HAVE COLLECTED BRIBE DURING CONGRESS & JDS REGIME & PURCHASED LAND, CONSTRUCTED HOUSE , DEPOSITED MONEY WITH BANKS, ACQUIRED GOLD , SILVER & DIAMONDS.

    ALL ARE CAUGHT DURING SHRI. YEDIYURAPPJI'S REGIME.

    BJP IS GOING TO ERADICATE CORRUPTION.

    JAI HO SHRI. YEDIYURAPPAJI.
