Will the Charm called Yeddy last anymore?

(image courtesy:

The recent supreme court judgement on the disqualification of rebel MLAs being null and void has not only given more teeth to the opposition parties that are already dissatisfied with the current government but has also given the rebel MLAs within BJP to press for a change in governance within the party.

This has now also become a plank for personal vendetta against each other between JDS, Congress, the Governor and the chief minister. Though Yeddy has consistently come out of all troubles and hardships he faced as chief minister, the latest salvo seems a bit complicated and long drawn affair. Given that corruption is highest in Karnataka one would expect a revolt from the people. But surprisingly even in the by polls just conducted and concluded, the BJP has again emerged victorious especially due to the operation LOTUS which has been its successful weapon ever since it formed the government.

The real problem with Yeddy is not about giving up his post and chair. Its really about keeping all the infighting away from breaking the party until it keeps its tenure.Though every CM would love his chair more than anything else, given the constant black magic incidents against Yeddy and his subsequent Mutt visits to annul these seems to be like its coming straight out of a movie clip. When every other state is aiming towards development, conducting business and attracting investments, Karnataka seems to be mired in controversy after controversy which weakens the progress towards efficient industrialization. This exactly then is the difference between Gujarat and Karnataka.

Armed with the SC verdict, the governor will now either kick out the speaker and the CM or go one step forward and also ask for a trust vote on the floor in order to bring down the entire government. Whichever way it is, its a blow to the people who elected the government forcing them to face another election on their face.

The credibility of JDS and Congress is another matter to talk about. Not that if the BJP goes down will he have an ultra effective government by Congress or the JDS. While the congress has no youth power and fresh ideas and still contains the same old wine being packaged in a new bottle each time, the JDS is still battling to have a proper identity. Once it says its development oriented, but still prevents infrastucture from being completed (read : NICE expressway), another time it says it supports minority, but we do still see many people disgruntled with the way the party is being handled.

So the big question is what happens to Yeddy this time? Will people go after his scalp and get it ? Should he step down and make way for someone more mature and strong to tackle opposition? The same opposition which has been time and again arguing about people's verdict? Or should he run back to the Mutt to get divine blessings that will keep the evil away?

If the government does come down will it mean we see another family party come up in Karnataka and loot its wealth all over again like TN?

My guess is as good as yours!

Car Rentals in Kuala Lumpur - SoCar vs GoCar

IntroductionAs I was headed to Malaysia for a trip for 10 days, I needed an option to commute within the country. While renting cabs with drivers was definitely an option, there was no privacy enough, and there was no way to make my own decisions on where I wished to go when. I was not so keen to rent a cab outside of KL city.We had plans to visit multiple places such as Cameron, Penang, Langkawi so I needed a vehicle which I was willing to drive myself. It was the best option as it would give me the convenience without burning a hole in my pocket. The trip itself was turning out to be expensive and I wanted a good option for inside the country travel.Things that I was looking forAs any first time car rental customer, I had some concerns, so I needed theseEasy rental mechanism, including driver sign up and validation of

How to cover Malaysia in 10 days - full details on a self planned trip

Some history Ever since 2016 my wife and I decided that we want to do one international trip (though not necessarily one country) every year. We made it to Singapore in 2016, and Dubai in 2017. It was time to explore and take my family to Malaysia this time around in 2018.

The fact that I was working in Malaysia in 2002 and could not get time in the short one year that I stayed there to see many places only meant the urge to go there was pretty strong in order that I could get another chance to cover all the places I did not see this time around.

Also 15 years down the line with a lot of instrastructure and convenience improvements happening around the world, surely the trip would seemingly put me at more ease than earlier on. So it was time to decide how to plan the trip.

My logic for planning trips I usually do my own booking and planning for everything for my trip. I look through places to visit, I look through multiple sources of reviews, I look through the best times to travel t…
