Resignation finally after days of defiance: Eshwarappa to meet CM at 7 pm

April 15, 2022

Bengaluru: Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister and senior BJP leader K.S. Eshwarappa, who is facing charges of abetment to suicide in connection with the death of Santosh Patil, a civil contractor in Udupi, will be stepping down from his post in the State Cabinet this evening, ending days of defiance. 

Reports from Shivamogga said that Eshwarappa is expected to hand over the resignation letter to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai at the CM’s residence at R.T. Nagar in Bengaluru at 7 pm. The CM, who is on Hubballi tour, will return to Bengaluru at 6 pm.

Though he is resigning under pressure, Eshwarappa will put up a brave face and he will travel to Bengaluru by road. He will demand the CM to order an investigation to bring out certain ‘unseen hands’ in the suicide case.

During his meeting with the CM, Eshwarappa will be accompanied by his son and former Zilla Panchayat member K.E. Kanthesh. Eshwarappa is grooming Kanthesh to be his political successor. Before leaving for Bengaluru, Eshwarappa will visit the party office in Shivamogga where he will address the party workers.

CM Basavaraj Bommai has clarified that Eshwarappa decided to resign on his own and there was no pressure from the party high command.

Meanwhile, the Congress has called for Eshwarappa’s arrest, saying that resignation was not enough. “Resignation is not a solution. A case of corruption has to be registered, and then he has to be arrested,” Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President D.K. Shivakumar said.

Reacting to this, CM Bommai said, “Congress can’t be the judge, jury and executioner. Was K.J. George arrested by the Karnataka Police or the CBI after Dy.SP M.K. Ganapathy committed suicide? Police will take a call after their investigation.”

Former CM B.S. Yediyurappa said that Eshwarappa will be reinducted into the Cabinet after he is cleared of all charges. “He has done nothing wrong, but is inevitably resigning. The case will be investigated in over two to three months. Eshwarappa will be included in the Cabinet when he is found not guilty,” Yediyurappa said.

    The Lingayat Mafia, with the support of Lingayat Mutts and Seers have become the core of this BJP government, which is headed by the caterpillar moustached Lingayat toad Basavaraja Bommai are the new brand of thugs and villains who are squabbling with The half-Italian friend of Italian Mafia Rahul Gandhi who is directing Kuruba Siddaramaiah. The Congress in their years of power consisting of CMs who were both Lingayat and Gowda thugs are now howling fowl!
    It is a pity that independence has reduced this once beautiful country in a massive cesspit of corruption, where criminals like Eswarappa have become the rulers. Yes the RSS cheddi thug Yediyurappa, predicts his fellow Lingayat Easwarappa to be cleared. Who clears him? Yes, the corrupt enquiry headed by a corrupt judge or a committee of corrupt officials!!
    Kengal Hanumanathaiah, the then CM, swindled cores of Rupees through Vidhana Soudha construction contracts awarded to his friends, and he was cleared by a corrupt committee consisting of Kengal’s friends. That was in mid-1955, less than 10years after independence. It was Nehru the PM then, now it is Modi the PM. No difference at all. Similar bunch of rogues and rascals.
    The prediction: “rascals, rogues, freebooters; all Indian leaders will be of low calibre & men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight amongst themselves for power and India will be lost in political squabbles.” is spot on!!
