    What a twist of history!
    The Congress ministers used to do what this thug Eswarappa did, and got away with it., and now it is the the BJP ministers turn!!
    Thaawarchand Gehlot was a BJP party apparatchik , who is the governor of Karnataka , a state now ruled by the BJP, of which this thug Easwarappa is a minister! This would happen in years ago, in states where Congress ruled and the governor then would be a Congress party apparatchik!
    What a wonderful democracy this India is!! No wonder, corruption is entrenched in every fibre of the country-politics, justice system, the police, the administration services, the institutions and the society.

    This did not happen when Gowdas ruled Karnataka.
    Bring back our leader Deve Gowda, and make him the CM.

    New slogan in India – corruption is our birth right

    When Gowdas were ruling, there were no problems like this.
    Hence bring back my leader Deve Gowda and make him the CM!
