At Biligere, the CM will address a thanksgiving rally at 11.30 am, in which over 50,000 Congress workers and  supporters are expected to take part.

    The Lingayat Seer of Suttur Mutt woukld rather have /kruba Siddaramaiah as the ?CM, than the Vokkaliga Shivakumar.
    These Seers are Kaavi-clad politicos, not saints.

  2. Ajjampur Vijayakumar says:

    Siddu, is trying his best to woo this saffron-clad Suttur Lingayat politician,masquerading as the Seer, as he knows the Congress has to keep Lingayats voting for them, instead of their Lingayat bunch headed by Yedi and Bommai.
    Siddu should know that as a Kuruba, he iwill not be as much liked as a Lingayat by this Lingayat Suttur Seer. But this Suttur Seer-politician knows also that in 30 months time, he will be facing a Vokkaliga Shivakumar, who will visit his favourite Seer of Adichunchunagiri-the old student of civil engineering at NIE, who seem to like WiFi and Facebook. Against him, the Suttur Seer has no chance!
    Decades ago, Master Hirannaiah in his Lunchavatara drama, highlighted the misdeeds of Kaavi, Khaki and Khadi clad people-the seers, the police officers and the politicians. How true, it has become !
    Here in New Delhi, there are such Seer-politicians. Hence, Narenda Modi, given the chance to visit Karnataka goes in search of these Kaavi-clad men, who, after all humns like him, not saints!
