Politicians caught in electoral politics: CM

'We are betraying people for power'

 
Delivering an emotional speech at the valedictory of centenary celebrations of Kengal Hanumanthaiah at Banquet hall in Vidhana Soudha, he said “Every moment I feel that I am doing injustice to people...People should not and will not excuse us for this.”

Unlike in the past, politicians now are selfish. “We (politicians) are caught in the electoral politics...We do anything and everything for the sake of power,” the CM stated.

It is for third time in less than two months that the CM has turned emotional in public. He had shed tears in an interview to a TV channel in Delhi when the Bellary Reddys had revolted against him and demanded the ouster of V P Baligar as principal secretary and Shobha Karandlaje as minister. He obliged the Reddys, but later had said he had betrayed those who stood by him, and that he would not be pardoned for his act.

Yeddyurappa, who has been keeping a low-profile ever since the BJP high command patched up the differences among the State leaders, further said that as the CM he has immense responsibility in providing better governance to people. “In order to work up to the expectations of people, he said, there is a need for bringing in reforms in administration. Besides, there is a need to have a control over it. We also need to set right all lapses,” he said.
