They’re making a cheat out of me: Yeddyurappa
The tension between chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda and his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa was palpable at the Basavashri awards ceremony.
BANGALORE: The tension between chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda and his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa was palpable at the Basavashri awards ceremony here on Tuesday.

Yeddyurappa invoked Akka Mahadevi’s vachanas (poetic works of the 12th century): “If you build a house near the forest, why fear the animals? If you build a house near the sea, why fear the waves? If you build a house in a public place, why fear the noise? If you are in public life, why fear criticism? I think some vachanas were written keeping me in mind.”

Reacting to the clapping his recitation evoked, he said: “Did I say anything wrong? Can’t I speak the truth about what people are trying to do to me? I am not afraid of criticism. People are trying to make a cheat out of an honest man like me.”

“My dharma has never been to cheat, but honest people like me are being projected as cheats,” Yeddyurappa said. He then turned his ire on former Lokayukta Santosh N Hegde. “When I went to jail, no one debated it. But when the court gave me a clean chit, Hegde ran to TV channels to debate the order. It was as if people were trying to send me back to jail.”

“Is it wrong to be born a Veerashaiva? I am sure Basavanna (saint and philosopher) will help me see good days.” he said. The 20-minute outburst left the chief minister, housing minister V Somanna and others stunned. Soon after finishing his speech, Yeddyurappa made a hasty exit.

Sressing on Basavanna’s principles, Gowda said: “Individual pursuits should be part of the social pursuit. There should be no quarrel among people. Walls of mistrust have to be broken, there should be sharing, and the world should be a peaceful place to live in.”

He quoted poet G S Shivarudrappa: “A lamp need not light up the entire world. If it can give enough light to enable me and you to see each other, that’s enough. We can then walk together.”

Later, speaking to reporters outside Ravindra Kalakshetra, the CM made an oblique reference to Yeddyurappa: “Everybody should focus on building social strength, not just individual strength.”

The strain in the relationship was evident even before the programme began. Gowda draped a shawl around Channaveera Kanavi, and gestured to Yeddyurappa to garland the poet. But the former CM stepped back and asked minister Basavaraj Bommai to garland Kanavi instead.

Yeddyurappa sat with anger all over his face. When the Suttur seer, seated between them, left to attend another function, Yeddyurappa and Gowda didn’t even look at each other.

    BJP MUST THINK VERY HARD, THE REASONS FOR ACCUSING SHRI BSY BY SHRI HEGDE DONT SEEM DONT SEEM TO BE TOO CONVINCING WHEN C.Ms OF CONGRESS /JDS ALL GO SCOT FREE ITS STRANGE THAT BJP C.M IS BEING ACCUSED. THOUSANDS OF CRORES OF IRON ORE THIEVERY IS GOING ON FOR YRS WHERE WAS BHARADWAJ GOVERNOR LOKAYUJTA HEGDE.
    BJP MUST INTROSPECT QUITE SERIOUSLY ON BSY, SINCE HE IS A POLITICAL ASSET TO BJP IN KARNATAKA & NOT A MAN WITH DIRTY HANDS WHEN COMPARED TO CORRUPTION BY OTHER PARTIES. BJP WILL NEED HIM IN KARNATAKA TO HOLD THE STATE..

    Surely BJP leadership has become spineless without knowing the efforts put by Yeddy to make the party a great success in K’taka.Whereas Congress never bothered to book any of its CMs despite adverse criticism be various reports and protecting Sheila Dikshit,Vilasrao Deshmukg,Shinde and many others and that womaniser Hegde in collusion with Bharadwaj showed his anomisty to pinpoint only Yeddy forgeting others like HDK,Krishna,Dharam Vir etc of Congress and other parties just to be in favour of the Congress High Command to get some plum posts and dubiously acting as if he is a clean man.Yeddy was absolutely right in criticising Hegde.BJP lacks a sense of leadership and all its so called leaders are good for nothing people and it is almost sure that BJP is going to lose K’taka in the next elections and Yeddy will start his own party and sweep the polls ‘Result will be all round chaos in BJP and again Sonia will have the last laugh and will come to power in the next General Elections whenever they take place with the assistance of Mulayam,Left and all others and BJP will simply wiped out.It is time leaders like Gadkari,Advani,Sushma,Jaitley,M M Joshy,Jeswant Singh etc are thrown out of the party and let younger leaders with dynamism come to the fore with a good agenda for development instead of banking on the old aganda of the BJP.If not BJP won’t get even 80 seats in the next LS elections.Stupid people giving everything to Sonia on a platter as they are no match for that witch.It will be a sad episode if Dr.Swamy joins such an idiotic party with no principles and losing support of the people and Swamy’s own identity also will get diluted.
