Bangalore: Former minister S A Ramdas attempts suicide

Bangalore: Former minister S A Ramdas attempts suicide

Daijiworld Media Network - Bangalore
With DHNS Inputs

Bangalore, Feb 11: In a shocking incident, former Karnataka minister S A Ramdas attempted suicide after a woman claiming to be his wife alleged that he had been harassing her.

A woman, identified as Premakumari, appeared before the media on Tuesday February 11 and claimed that she had been married to Ramdas for the past five years but he had refused to acknowledge their marriage.

She also alleged that he had cheated her and had been harassing her for the last five years. She claimed that she had been his 'unofficial' wife and that the former minister had ruined her life.

Ramdas, who was the minister for medical education in the previous BJP government, reportedly tried to commit suicide by hanging himself in a Mysore guest house he was staying in, hours after the media flashed Premakumari's claims.

He was rushed to a hospital in Mysore and reports stated that his condition was critical. He was declared out of danger by night, sources said.

Speaking to the media after the suicide attempt, Premakumari said that her intention in coming before the media was only to seek justice for the wrong done to her and not to push Ramdas to commit suicide.

Premakumari also said that before attempting suicide, Ramdas had called her on phone while she was in the press conference, and threatened to kill himself by consuming poison if she did not end the press meet.

As crowds began to swell, there was a minor altercation with demands that media persons be sent out of the hospital premises. Mahesh, BJP city unit president Maruti Rao Pawar and corporator Shivakumar intervened to prevent the situation from getting out of control.

Earlier in the day, Premakumari, a second division clerk at the deputy commissioner’s office in Tumkur, alleged at a press conference that Ramdas had “sexually and mentally harassed” her. Ramdas “used his authority as a minister to transfer her frequently”, she claimed.

Premakumari said she first met Ramdas in 2009 for a transfer from the assistant commissioner’s office in Tarikere to the DC’s office in Mysore.

Later, she was transfered to the HMT maternity hospital, Mysore on deputation, where she worked for three years. Thereafter, Premakumari said, she was transfered to the DC’s office in Mysore by the end of 2012. “Within three months, Ramdas again transferred me to Tumkur. I refused to go there, as the education of my two children would have been affected,” she added.

At the press meet, Premakumari received a phone call which she said was that of Ramdas and put the phone on the loudspeaker. The caller said, “Don’t do anything, or else I will consume poison and commit suicide.”

“Ramdas married me unofficially at his home. Now he should marry me openly and accept me as his wife,” she demanded. Premakumari said she had photographs, videos and mobile phone clippings to substantiate her allegations which would be produced before the media. She said would also make a complaint to the police.

Who would tie the bell first.If at all legalized.
Are you or me sacrifice our life.
Sin is sin even if it legalized.

Once Abortion was legal in India too, every railway station and every train compartment we used to see Doctors' advertisements only Rs.70/- etc.
The government later realized SIN WILL NOT BECOME VERTUE even if is LEGALISED.
Hope you will understand the societies feeling.

Ram Dasji you are a good politician. You played politics with women also. Now no need to worry. Simply marry her. No suicide like Veeru in Sholay picture. That is old story. Veeru was dying for love. You are dying to hate love. What a difference? Paani mein utara to tairna chahiye bhai. Best of luck.

Mr.Ramdas hails from a good family and he was the best minister of the earlier government too.Why he has to attempt for the coward act of suicide when the lady who is a widow so bold to call him as a husband without marriage.Teach the lady a proper lesson if she blackmails and also caution the media not to encourage this type of cases to media trial.Thanq.

Whosoever wants to trade their body in exchange for money it is their right no one owns anyone! Prostitutes/Sex Workers are not committing crime!!, at least they will check the unwanted rapes in the society which we are suffering from also cases such as this may too will be checked as men can go and relieve themselves legally instead of resorting to rapes/ extra marital affairs whereby the family structure breaks down totally, and at least men know their transactions are legal and binding with a Prostitute/Sex Workers, but in case of affairs everything is kept secret until one party starts to think that they have been "cheated" of their " rights" have been violated, then they see what maximum harm can be inflicted to the other party (to their benefits)and they will try to do it " legally" even though so called " aggrieved" party was in total agreement as long as everything was hunky dory for 5-6 long years, probably until goose stopped laying golden eggs and then suddenly the realization strikes about “ABUSED” !! and coming to your query If a Porn actress (Sunny Leone) can get a stardom status in India what more can be said! Also now the PC (politically Correctness) calls it as a Worker so it is recognized as work in fact, there are Many NGO’s are working go this , so they will also compensate with the end of the service benefits like any other worker so many of these workers get married to good families, channel like BBC have made documentaries on such subject at least check in the you tube to get informed, if you are not aware of such intricacies I wonder what is YOUR attitude about another human being trying to make ends meet with whatever opportunity presented by the life ( but not by any external power by vested interest, but only by their free will and choice).

No part of his jumble of words contains an answer to my questions. I must say, the first sentence is an open display of his disrespect towards the human body (both, a man's or woman's).

Poor Ramdas - a bachelor boy - such a nice boy (man) did not commit any adultery or had any affair with any woman and does not have any inclination to commit and even so being a RSS man - pure brahmachari (like present days pure vegetarian restaurants!!) will never fall into temptations!!

One thought always irked me - do these "married & left" bachelors and those who did not really get married, do they really abstain from sex\sexual thoughts\acts all their life? Do they overcome temptations throughout their life?
When one is on "temptation" mode and a bachelor, anything they do then is immoral and against "CULTURE"!!.
Do you really believe these are 100% bachelors and do not use their power when they are in position like Ramdas?
His threat to end his life itself proves, he is guilty and as per law, he should be booked and imprisoned trying to commit suicide (New law on this has not yet come into effect).
So called RSS people!!

Here the facts from her interview-
1. She is a widow with 2 children.
2. Ramdas is an eligible bachelor till today.

So he did it practically.

When the news of his practicality is exposed this bjp-ex minister tried to commit suicide.

The woman, Premakumar, is also equally guilty in the case. For four to five years she continued as his mistress and enjoyed all cream. Now, the less resources start receiving from Ramdas, she raises the issue of legalizing her relationship.

Shame on this woman.

R.Bhandarkar, M'lore

In my opinion Prostitution must be made legal so we can end all this unnecessary affairs and rape “sexual and mental harassment allegations also such Kind of the allegations proved wrong there should be sever punishment up to 7-10 years of rigorous imprisonment this is the only way to stop this kind of nonsense created by so called "Educated Women" by the help of Scrupulous lawyers .
This is a classic case of abetment to commit suicide (IPC section 306 If any person commits suicide, whoever abets the commission of such suicide, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine )and she should be prosecuted under this section

May I know why prostitution needs to be legalized ? Lets assume its legalized - am I or are you willing (or permit our kin) to serve there or use the services ?

I have more questions, but I'll wait for your answer to what I have already asked here.

She has two children from who? Where is her first husband? Did she enjoy with Ramdas while she is married to someone else? It is unfortunate that this type of concocted stories are coming up after enjoying years together. I feel days are not far we may require to form "Men's Organizations" to fight for our rights.

Ramdas had “sexually and mentally harassed” her. Ramdas “used his authority as a minister to transfer her frequently.

These lines speak volumes of this scum bag ex minister. I think the people of Karnataka did a right thing by booting out BJP from the state otherwise many more ladies would have been sexually harassed and molested by Bajapa's 'holier than thou' ministers.

Ramdas was a minister for Higher Education in previous BJP Govt and hails from the respectable Brahmin community.Still, he does not know dignity in life and dont know to lead a respectful life.Such people with dubious personal/family record should NOT be given ticket to contest this time.

Gentle readers, I cannot believe that there are comments to say that is 'a fashion' for women to tarnish or blame a man for the crime that HE and HE alone will commit. WOMEN do not Ask to be raped, killed, abused physically, mentally, sexually and emotionally. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE has to stop. Whenever men commit a crime some people immediately blame the woman. There have been cases vice versa, but not as often as men who commit crimes especially against women.

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

S A Ramdas, is a probable BJP candidate for the Mysore Loksabha constituency. May be some connection for this incident!!!!!!!!!

Ramdas tries to commit suicide..why??? Is it because he is guilty or he is innocent and he can't bear this insult? Truth should come out. It is too early to comment on this case as only that women and Ramdas know the truth. So guys, before making any assumptions, wait for the truth to come out..

When we encounter someone who is more chosen, beloved or esteemed than we are, our natural instinct is to tear them down to our level.
Prema(LOVE)kumari's name itself is for making love and not for declaring it in the press meet.
When things start going out of control people get frustrated and decide to call press meet.

It is really sad and sorry about Mr. Ramdas. Ms. Premkumari suddenly appeared and claiming him, as a husband. He might be dodged by Premkumari many years before. The real thing must come out and giving the information to media is not a solution. Hope he will recover soon and the truth will reveal.

This is a good example, Woman can do anything and everything, they can make a House or Break a house.
I know personally many women caused their men to become Alcoholic, caused for depression, High BP and many of them died with heart attacks where men have no chance to tell anyone about his partner in this world, if he does.. it is more miserable for him.
Even President Clinton's career screwed up by a ordinary woman, Many well known Actors, Politicians, Other personalities, Even Religious Leaders are victims.
There is no Law implication for harassment, death of men by indirectly caused by women where there is no proof nor any clues.

One gets a good life partner (wife as well as husband) by luck. Those who didn't get one, make adjustments and take things positively than saying 'grapes are sour'.

There is no generalization that women spoil men nor men spoil women. Over expectations (greed), unnecessary comparison and jealousy invites many disappoints in life. I remember a man who showed his wife to Gulf to earn him money while he feasted with sex workers. Result ? The wife returned in time to save their children from running away from home (due to his tantrums) and to nurse the HIV husband !

Bill Clinton is a bad choice of example, because famous men/women are tailed by a hoard of admirers who don't mind going to the extreme of indecency, after which, some silently walk away but some take advantage of the situation by blackmailing the successful member.

A faithful spouse does not give heed to such temptations, but maintains the respect of them both together.

R.Bhandarkar, M'lore
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

See, you are very good and mature and give good comments and all in these matters.I am floored, but from there, think otherwise and give rejoinders or ask questions-Here same case:
1) What 'luck' after marriage? I have seen so many men after marriage, joining classes only to learn 'how to nod their head and say 'YES'' where does luck come in here? Any doubt as to who is lucky here?
2. What 'generalization' about spoiling? You, madam-what telling? See my English has also gone awry
at the mention? Just take this example! So many 'men' poets while compared to women? Do you think they took to the pen just like that?Who made them 'bingree' in the first place?
Who frequent' bars' more? Why? Has a thorough research been done? The talks there 75% comprises of women? O.K? No 'generalization 'Madam'...The jury is out on this one too...!!
3. What Bill Clinton and all? Whosoever does like that and all has to pay the Bill -O.k.?
See Man in his whole life feels half complete and seeks the 'other half' to be complete!It is not an easy task..Goes through turmoils
for 'many lives' to be complete...He has to 'realise' it and he will! How is another story!!
This is not the place to reveal it though.

Bhandarkar Maam,

I liked your jovial outburst - rather a 'Rasamanjari'

I am aware that you are a happy man, a happily-married-man. I wish all good to you.

Leave those who are struggling in life to find happiness alone because there is no exact definition or limit to happiness. We can't say whether its money, literacy, health or person/s (pretty/handsome wife/husband) or brilliant children that an individual finds happiness in. Possessing one Rupee is too less, but someone who possesses on million Rupees too is not content in life. A hermit, who renounced all pleasures of life is begging for what ? Not food/clothing/medicine, but money - just imagine the meaning of his renunciation ?

You have a wonderful day Bhandarkar Maam...

Mr. Bhandarkar,
I hope you will agree with the below points:

Hell hath no fury like a woman -scorned or conned or unsatisfied(in marriage). Pity for the men who have to face such kind of women.
Nowadays, a man has to say "I am the boss of this house and I have my wife's permission to say so"

Nowadays this has become a fashion, giving press statement and alleging rape or misconduct after many years or months all together. It's possible such things to happen. But why one cannot realize and report the same at an early stage to proper authority. She stated to be his unofficial wife for the last five years. Cheated and ruined her life and now harassing her.
