    But corruption like none other was seen in the first and last BJP regime which ended in this election.

    People are forgetting. State politics different, National politics different.

    At least in Karnataka Congress has done well without any corruption like what BJP did in Karnataka.

    So naturally any congress supporter will be happy that Congress is back to power.

    Just one state BJP got in south for the first time, they looted the state like anything. CM Yeddy went to jail as if it was a picnic spot and his host of ministers.

    The BJP highcommand knew about how corrupt the govt in karnataka was, for eg Sushma Swaraj got a diamond studded silver mukut by the Reddy Brothers. They knew everything, but let Yeddy and gand loot the state, instead of thinking about the welfare of the state and finally removed Yeddy only to dig their own grave.

    Once a BJP strongman Yeddy was seen as a demi God by BJP high notch, suddenly when Yeddy got caught himself by appointing a probe against himself, he became a villain and the BJP removed him from CMship, actually BJP itself is corrupt, if by removing Yeddy everything would be setright, then they should have crossed the magic number of 113 themselves even after removing Yeddy.

    it did not happen as people of karnataka know that BJP itself is a corrupt political party which never got a chance to form govt in south india and when got they just looted and looted.

    So only the BJP were booted out by the karnataka people.

    In just one state BJP has looted so much, just imagine what will happen if they come to power in LS elections. Mass destruction gauranteed.


    BANGALORE: The Special Court on Saturday ordered a probe into a private complaint against external affairs minister S M Krishna over alleged illegal mining.

    Judge N K Sudhindra Rao directed Lokayukta additional director general of police (ADGP) H N Satyanarayana Rao probe under section 156(3) of Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPc) and submit the report by January 6. The court also directed the police to register a case and probe two other former Karnataka chief ministers - N Dharam Singh and H D. KUmarswamy over illegal mining controversy. With this, Congress, which was free from allegations in connection with illegal mining, has joined BJP and JD(S) bandwagon in the row.

    The private complaint accusing Krishna, Singh and Kumaraswamy of corruption was filed by a businessman and activist, Abraham T J. The complaint accuses Krishna of destroying the state's natural resources for personal gain, while serving as chief minister between 1999 and 2004. The complainant described Krishna's decision to de-reserve forest areas as the beginning of the illegal mining scam. "He ignored the advice of the department secretary and ordered for dereservation. It led to all kinds of illegalities,'' the complainant stated.

    Charging Krishna with illegally amassing wealth in the name of his family members and erstwhile cabinet colleagues, the complainant submitted copies of the documents, obtained under RTI, related to investments made by a son-in-law of Krishna. On Friday, the court sought clarifications from the complainant. When the court asked if he has adopted a 'selective' approach in naming the accused, he said: "Other people who have not been mentioned in the complaint are already before this court."

    It was a reference to former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa. Abraham said though there was no direct reference to show Krishna benefited, the documents showed that at the time corresponding to the de-reservation of land, properties were acquired in and around Bangalore in the name of his son-in-law. When the judge asked why he didn't approach the Lokayukta police before petitioning the court, Abraham said that people had lost confidence in the Lokayukta police after Justice Santosh N Hegde retirement. The court asked Abraham to submit second set of documents by Tuesday.

    Besides Krishna, two other former CMs Dharam Singh and Kumaraswamy, both are MPs now, and 11 senior officials have been accused of conspiracy and corruption. The complainant stated that Singh ordered issuance of temporary transport permits for the movement of iron and manganese ore from agricultural patta lands, resulting in a loss of Rs 23.22 crore to the government. He stated that Kumaraswamy had illegally approved a mining lease in 550 acres of land in favour of Shree Sai Venkateshwara Minerals and committed illegalities with Jantkal Mining Company.

    Referring to sanctions required to move against the former chief ministers, the complainant stated that he had written to the Lok Sabha speaker and the Rajya Sabha chairman. They replied it was not essential at this stage and would consider it when the chargesheet was framed.

    Senior officials named include Gangaram Baderia, Basappa Reddy, I R Perumal, Jija Harisingh, Mahendra Jain, K S Manjunath, Ramappa, Shankarlingaiah and V Umesh.

    To refresh the weak memories of people who think that Congress Govt in Karnataka was clean, If Congress Govt were so clean then why people chose BJP in last elections. Truth is both parties were equally corrupt in the state, BJP ruined the chance they get in Karnataka, by corruption of Yedi and changing 3 CMs.
    people have not choice. This is more a negative voting for state bJP permormance.
    If corruption was only criteria for voting, then Congress has nochange to win a single seat in any election, because its Mother of all corruption.

    Vote share of each Party clearly suggests that if Yedi's votes are added to BJP, then BJP would have got near 90 odd seats, while Congress would have got 80 odd seats. (Assuming if Yeddi would have been part of BJP, he would have earned same votes for BJP)
    T
    hat would have given Kingsmaker role to Devi Gouda & Co, which means another unstable Govt and horse trading.

    Its better for Karnataka people that they got single party Govt with clear majority. One front runner for CM post, made CM and another will get Railway Ministry, so no major rebel issue now.
