    So the all powerful Suttur Seer, more powerful than Yeddi the CM, as he has the ears of the PM and President, has achieved this, and Yeddi would have coughed up a few cores of funding for this. The next state for the “Kaavi” power, is to sink the famous Mysore Medical College into a worthless edifice, as he expands his Medical College, and send the medical graduates to all parts of the Western world as immigrants, manning their hospitals , where the treatment is free, unless Mysuru where the hospitals can bankrupt a hapless patient, if he does not have stashed in the graft money.
