    So , when Moustached Basavraja Bommai failed to meet PM Modi and Amit Shah, because they did not want to waste their time in meeting this weak dim witted CM of Karnataka, this culture minister wanted to show some achievement for the large waste of tax payers money spent on travel and accommodation, and met this central education minister to ask him to consider an autonomous state for this institute. This could have been done with a phone call and an invitation for this central minister to visit the institute. Oh, you see there the opportunist Simha, who is hell bent in destroying Mysore city by actively planning Hassan-Kodagu-Kerala highway, encouraging Rope Way for the Hill lobbying Basavaja Bommai, and others.
    What a bunch ofpoliticalvillains!
