“I had such an immense faith in Mr. Kumaraswamy in the past 20 months that when some people suspected that he might not hand over power to the BJP, I said that even if God appeared before me and said that Mr. Kumaraswamy was going to ditch me, I would not believe it. But, finally, he let me down.”
- Yadiyurappa ([:http://www.hindu.com/2007/10/14/stories/2007101455320600.htm|The Hindu, 14/10/2007])

Who's talking here?

Karan Thapar: What I am saying is rather than ask the Prime Minister not to operationalise the deal, the power to stop the operationalisation is in your hands. If you withdraw support, the government ceases to exist and can’t sign the deal on the dotted line. So if you want it stopped, then you have the power to do so. Are you serious about this or not? Sitaram Yechury: My agenda is the deal and your agenda seems to be the government.

ramlalla, in his blog 'Contradiction', writes... " But just a few months of power has corrupted the Congress' political vision. As an observer, and admirer, of political manouvering irrespective of party, I just cannot fathom the logic of the Congress' hounding Uma Bharati. " I think almost everyone might be thinking the same... after all, is hoisting a flag in some disputed idgah such a big crime? Whats Congress doing with power in its hands? Dirty Politics, for sure!
