CM Bommai returns from Delhi empty handed

April 7, 2022

Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s plan to get nod for Cabinet expansion or reshuffle from the Party High Command, seems to have proved futile as he returned empty handed from New Delhi this morning without getting the go-ahead for his Cabinet plans.

Bommai left for Delhi on the afternoon of Apr. 5 with his Cabinet expansion/reshuffle plans and also for getting clearance for some of the key projects of the State. But Bommai was unable to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, but succeeded in meeting BJP National President J.P. Nadda and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

Meanwhile, highly placed sources said that the BJP High Command will take a decision on giving nod for Karnataka Cabinet expansion/reshuffle only after the State Executive Committee meeting scheduled to take place at Hospet on Apr.17 and 18. Prior to the meeting, several top leaders will discuss the political scenario in the State and provide a feedback to the Party top brass on the State of affairs in the Karnataka Unit of the BJP, the sources said adding that no immediate outputs were available after Bommai’s meeting with J.P. Nadda and Rajnath Singh. Sensing a Cabinet expansion, several aspirant legislators had camped in Delhi for days ahead of Bommai’s visit. But they are left disappointed after learning that the Party High Command has no immediate plans of Cabinet expansion.

    Similar to what happened in the Congress Party regimes in the state and at the centre. Rushing to New Delhi to seek permission for anything the CM wants to do. That shows, how the CM is made as a slave to central leaders. The fact that Narendra Modi does not have even a few minutes for him demonstrates the low regard he has for this caterpillar-moustached idiot Basavaraja Bommai, Obviously, he returns empty handed!
    Think whether Modi would have done this to for example, the Tamil Nadu DMK CM,MK Stalin, whose strength in his state Modi respects.
    Karnataka CMs, historically have been neglected by the central leaders from Nehru to now Modi.
    Kengal, Nijalingappa ,Jatti and Veerendra Patil, Hegde, Devaraj Urs, as the CMs, tried to match the kind of influence that Congress CM Kamaraj, the DMK CM Karuananidhi , AIADMK CM MGR with various PMs like Nehru,Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi but all miserably failed.
    Hence one can assume that the Meke Datu project will not be approved by Modi.

    I remember reading DH in those days in 1960s,a similar-looking toad Nijalingappa as the CM, failed to meet Nehru and L B Shastry every time he went to New Delhi, as they knew this Lingayat CM to be weak and supported in the state because of his caste.
    Hence, Nijalingappa used to be surprised , heard the news from the radio and news papers like all of us then, the announcements of such developments like the establishment of the HMT, HMT watch factory, expansion of the BEL and ITI ,and even the approval of the NGEF and its collaboration with the AEG of Germany, which was financed by the state! He would later say he knew of them before hand which was a lie. The same fate with Jatti and Veerendra Pail, the Lingayat disciples from the arid regions of North Karnataka! Indira Gandhi, totally controlled Jatti and Veerendra Patil llike school boys! She made Jatti,the VP, because, he would listen to her with so much respect as his Goddess!
