Thieves, liars, thrive in BJP: Mysore MLA

Four-time MLA Shankarlinge Gowda met the Chief Minister and sought a ministerial berth. But he could elicit no response from the chief minister.

As he came out of the Chief Minister’s residence, he gave vent to his anger. “Only thieves, liars and those into land mafia get prominence in the BJP. I am not getting a cabinet berth because I don’t have money.”

He challenged the party leadership to suspend him for his remarks. MLAs C T Ravi and Appachchu Ranjan threatened to submit their resignation as MLAs. They conveyed their intention to BJP state president Eshwarappa. However, nobody submitted their papers to speaker K G Bopaiah, who is in abroad.
