  1. Karnataka Government is a role model to all other Congress governments – if any- in India. Siddharamaiah has done it again!!

  2. I have seen and heard about Siddharamaiah on the electronic media and read about him and happenings on the electronic media.

    If Sasikala paid Rs. 2 crores to get a five room suite in Bangalore jail, fully furnished with furniture, television with a large television, sleeping room, kitchen, yoga room and a room with toilet facilities. This suite had all provisions. I understand that Abdul Rehman Teligi is also given special accommodation and attendants and masseurs.

    This privilege has been accorded to Sasikala not just higher police officials and bureaucrats, but also at senior political level. That is why Siddaramaiah is trying to hush up the matter and destroy all evidence. If he was honest, he would have called the DIG (Prisons) D. Roopa and taken all information, deputed a judicial enquiry and got the DG (Prisons) suspended till completion of investigation. Since he has not done this, I smell a fish.
