Bengaluru: Yediyurappa's 'tight rope walk' - Kumaraswamy, Siddaramaiah advise to step down

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Oct 1: Chief minister B S Yediyurappa's claim of doing a 'tight rope walk' in running the government has evoked comments from his friends and foes alike. As the BJP leaders and opposition parties began making their own analysis about the statement, BJP leaders stepped in and asked the party leaders not to make any comments on the issue, either negative or positive.

Former chief minister Siddaramaiah said that he feels pity for Yediyurappa and advised the chief minister to resign if he finds it difficult to handle the post. "The party leaders have clipped his wings. He is a weak chief minister," he ridiculed. H D Kumaraswamy went a step further and asked Yediyurappa to have a glance at the plight of the flood-affected people from above the rope and try to improve their condition. He said that if does not do so, the people will bring him down from the rope.

Minister V Somanna said that Yediyurappa is under tremendous pressure because of various responsibilities he has to discharge, R Ashok said he does not know under what circumstances the chief minister had said so. Eshwarappa said that Yediyurappa had expressed what he has felt. Deputy chief ministers Laxman Savadi and Govind Karjol, said that his statement has been wrongly understood. Union minister Prahlad Joshi, felt that there is no need to assign any special meaning to what Yediyurappa had said.

It came as a surprise that Yediyurappa, in spite of his statement going for a toss and various people making different comments on it, chose to ignore them and stay away from all kinds of controversies.

Some of Yediyurappa's supporters feel that the party's effort to have a hold over the government through state president, Nalin Kumar Kateel, and instruction issued to him to discuss with top leaders even less important issues before taking any decision on any issue, have created tension in the chief minister's mind as a result of which he would have termed his condition as tight rope walk.

    We in Maharashtra, are due for elections.... Well, it is a forgone conclusion, that BJP and Shiv Sena, will retain absolute power.... Likewise if elections, are scheduled, in Karnataka, then it is absolutely obvious, to conclude, BJP, riding back to power !!!!!! The demolition team, of PM Modiji and Home Minister, Amitbhai Shah, has totaly, destroyed all opportunist opposition parties, namely, Congress and all its allies !!!!!!!

    Yediyurappa has to do the circus after the bye elections permanently. So it is good for him to have practice now itself of walking on tight rope and some other tricks, which will be useful after December.

    Yeddyurappa's desperation speaks. How long he will be able to hold himself back God alone knows but it is very clear that he is feeling uncomfortable in the present situation. In a way it is unfair to him but one should not lose sight of the fact that the last time he had thrown all caution to the wind to go about looting everything that came his way. So now he might be needing the permission of the high command even to go to the toilet. Whether he wants to continue at the cost of his self respect, only he can tell. One thing, however, is very clear. His days are numbered and sooner rather than later, the high command will show him the door. They are just biding their time. But unfortunately the people of the state have to pay for all this drama. Governance has gone for a toss and the flood victims are waiting with their mouths open.

    Why did these two jokers not step down when they were not able to manage and kept holding on to the kursi until it was pulled out.

    We simply support their musical chair game, in return comon man and our state only loose developments. Leaders simply play their game and end their day, they have income on both from win and lose.
    Repeatedly changing government will stop all developmental works of our state, we only invite troubles unknowingly.

    Mr.Siddaramaiah is comparatively better than the Two CM's, if not a fresh face from BJP as an CM is much better than Siddaramaiah, public will definitely support an new face CM in BJP.
