Bengaluru: Yogeshwar's allegation about 'adjustment politics' irks Shivakumar, Kumaraswamy

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jul 31: BJP leader, actor-turned-politician and ministerial aspirant and MLC C P Yogeshwar, who is a common political adversary of both Shivakumar and Kumaraswamy, ruffled several feathers by commenting that both these leaders have good relationship with chief minister (CM) B S Yediyurappa, and that they indulge in politics of understanding with the CM. Yogeshwar's name figures prominently in the list of probables who might make it to the cabinet by next week.

Both Shivakumar and Kumaraswamy hit back by claiming that they have never indulged in politics of mutual understanding with Yediyurappa.

Yogeshwar said that Kumaraswamy has a soft corner towards the BJP as whatever he wants is being met by the government. "Shivakumar is the president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee only during the day. At night he stands in front of Yediyurappa duly folding his arms. Both wish that Yediyurappa should continue as the CM for the next three years. I invite Congress and JD(S) workers to join the BJP instead of reposing trust on these leaders and heading towards doom," he had commented.

Kumaraswamy said that he has never indulged in adjustment politics in the past and never will. "My relationship with Shivakumar is of multiple kinds. Political relationship is different from personal trust. People who got settled through backdoor politics cannot damage genuine people. The current government has not given any new project to my Ramanagara district," he fumed.

Shivakumar, who got angry, said that Yogeshwar had met him two weeks back to request him to allow him to join the Congress. "Yogeshwar told me that Yediyurappa is being unseated and he will not get any opportunity in the BJP henceforth. However, I refused his admission into the party. I am not aware why he is behaving like this," he asserted.

Shivakumar's brother and MP D K Suresh, felt that the way Yogeshwar is talking, it is clear that he has become mentally unstable. He said that the BJP leaders have directly led Yogeshwar from the mental hospital to the legislative council.

    Politics is all about give and take. Yediruppa is liked by many from all parties because of his work and many within his own party want him out. All his decisions during covid may not seem right retrospectively but he has led from front.

    In India everyone wants to enmities and everyone want to treat other enemies.

    1. People forgot that being a politician is a profession, another person in the same profession is not your enemy but competitor.
    2. In the sports, when they are in the filed, they play for their team utilising all their skill. They don't drop a catch, in a cricket match, because they are friends and they play together for another team.
    3. A Doctor or a Lawyer shouldn't treat another doctor as enemy but a competitor. They might need to discuss few things together for the betterment of patient, in the case of Doctors.

    In politics, every party have different ideology, different way of cheating people and so on... It is just the difference of opinion which can happen even in family but these politicians need not to be enemies. At the end of the day, out of office, they can be just friends, what is wrong in it, as long as they perform their duty as elected representative of the particular constituency??

    Unfortunately some people even have problem with A' daughter wedding with B' grandson. Aren't they humans and have rights to marry whom they like?

    Do you guys want them to fight each other with weapons in the Parliament and outside??

    Good to see Congress and JDS join hands and come together to lash Yogeshwar. In the best interests of both JDS and Cong its better for them to merge and form a strong opposition to BJP. An alliance would not work , history is evidence. Its also obvious that they both wont win in majority on their own.

    Why naming to its leaders? If you say khangress should merge with JDS why not JDS merge with khangress? as khangress is comparituvly bigger party than JDS. Just because u r JDS follower or mini mini powder wala. Why don't you say merging is also left to parties and its leaders?

    Most of the politicians have good relations ship with each, only for public they are enemies, but internally they are friends, there are many who are related to each other but they will not reveal to the public. They are making fools out of their followers who blindly follow them.
