    Dera Mr.Sadananda Gowda,

    When BYS was forced to vacate the post of CM, he put you in that seat. This brought back the memory of S.Nijalingappa making SR Kanti as CM for a short period till he got elected to the Assembly. The the arrangement worked and SRK vacated the post onec SN got elected. People like us thought that you are the blue eyed boy of BYS will serve to his as Bharathat within very short period your relation went sore and now it reached point of no return. Will you tell the people of Karnataka the story behind such happenings?
