|Karnataka Bandh : TV9 Exclusive Pictures|
When none felt so, 'it was a self-motivated bandh by the Public' feels the ruling party alone! If true, I definitely have to appreciate the real swift decision with action of Public, vowing the fact that a state-wide protest initiated self-motivated; in less than a few hours. 'Was there a need to a self-motivated bandh be called for?' questioned the opposition and opined 'it was nothing more than a Govt-Sponsored Strike'. Like govt-sponsored bicycle, govt-sponsored ambulance and govt-sponsored bisi-uta, now comes the govt-sponsored bandh; no surprise!
Though I could only see a countable number of BJP members ruining the livelihood of many working class people everywhere, ruling party leaders addressing press told that it was the 'Public' who protested by extending overwhelming support to the BJP. They also said 'except few reports of stone-pelting and lathi-charge along with two buses being set fire, bandh was overall peaceful' - how can a few hundreds of BJP members do every damage allover? It ought to be peaceful, no other ways. For being the Constitutional Authority and sanctioning to prosecute the corrupts, H. R. Bhardwaj had to take all the blame of being responsible for every loss incurred due to today's bandh. The simple word 'Shame' seems to have been disappeared from the dictionary of politicians; word 'Ethics' would be too much of an ask.
'Karnataka had never witnessed such degree of corruption before' said Mr. K. N. Balaraj, one of the two Advocates who had sought sanction from Governor to prosecute Chief Minister and others on allegations of corruption. Mr. Sirajin Bhasha, the other Advocate seemed confident when said 'there are no political or external forces behind our move and we never will relax until putting an end to this corruption'. No wonder both of them are now the real heros amongst the general Public.
POLITICS AT ITS WORST BEST..??!
