ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Rahul Gandhi, Amit Shah on two-day Karnataka tour”

  1. Kawakawaffoxgowda says:

    The Lingayat mutts and their seers , do not care which party wins the Assembly seats as long as the Government formed has a Lingayat CM and most ministers are Lingayats.
    Hence, Rahul Gandhi has to replace the old Kuruba, Siddu, with a Lingayat potential Congress CM, preferably a woman to capture Lingayat votes with a potential deputy CM ,a Gowda woman too, to get the Gowda votes in districts like Mandya, Ramanagara etcc.. where the old goat Deve Gowda and his son are influential in the Gowda communities.
    The next assembly elections will be Gowdas against the Lingayats.
    So wonderful to look at this scenario in independent India after70 years of independence! Jai Hind!!
