Today the Lokayukta Court in Karnataka remanded BS Yediyurappa to judicial custody till 22nd October regarding two private complaints filed by Sirajin Pasha, a lawyer. Yediyurappa failed to get bail in these two cases from the court and an arrest warrant was issued. Yediyurappa then surrendered himself. But is he really the culprit?? I am not saying Yediyurappa is not corrupt nor am I defending his actions. But why only Yediyurappa?? He used the discretionary powers vested with him to denltify lands and also to allot sites to certain private companies, some being controlled by his sons and also his son in law. It might be recalled that the Governor, also a promonent Congress Figure HR Bharadwaj had given permission for Yediyurappa’s prosecution mid-January-early this year. His predecessors SM Krishna, Dharam Singh, Kumaraswamy too had done the same thing. They had alloted sites and also denotified LARGE TRACT OF LANDS in favour of their kith and kin, their wives or in favor of their son-in-laws and they are walking FREE.. But only Yediyurappa is victimized. Why? Is that because he is from BJP-Sangh Parivar-Hindu?? Also the biased nature of the Indian media towards BJP adds to Yediyurappa’s arrest. SM Krishna had denotified LARGE TRACTS OF LAND in favour of his family when he was the CM which was revealed by the then JDS State Prez Siddaramaiah who is now with Congress and floor leader in the assembly. Same with Dharam Singh. Kumarawamy, son of Former PM Devegowda too had denotified LARGE TRACTS OF LANDS in favor of his family. In fact the districts of Hassan and Ramanagar have turned to be the private properties of Devegowda and family. Also in the Lokayukta Report on Illegal Mining, Yediyurappa has been falsely indicted. The then Lokayukta Justice Santhosh Hegde has let off SM Krishna, the one who blessed Illegal mining in Karnataka and also Dharam Singh, both of the Congress. It may be recalled that the same Santhosh Hegde had named Dharam Singh in his interim report which was later deleted by the then Governor Rameshwar Thakur. another Congress agent. What does this indicate? Santhosh Hegde covers Congress. Also when there was rumours of SM Krishna being named in yhe report, Mr. Hegde calls a press meet to clarify that Krishna is not named. What does this mean?? May be he didn’t want to face the ire of the self–proclaimed First family, Sonia Gandhi. Is he eyeing post retirement benefits from the Congress?? I mean President post?? Amidst all these political High Drama, poor chap BS Yediyurappa has to pay the price.
