Banni Brother, nodona’ — Come brother, how about we see — is Kumaraswamy’s preferred emergency comprehending line. The previous a year have been extraordinary, however. He has quit saying ‘banni’ (come), seldom parades ‘brother’- hood with his MLAs and has overlooked ‘nodona’ (we should see) while dealing with administrators.
“Kumaraswamy isn’t a similar man now. In 2006, he was viewed as a caring and sharing pioneer by all. Presently, it’s hard to get the opportunity to address him on telephone or meet him face to face,” said a JD(S) leader.
Prior, he was a man of the majority, remained in towns (through ‘grama vaastavya’ program) and tended to individuals’ issues through Janata Darshan occasions. He was a dear of MLAs from all gatherings, the JD(S) leader stated, including: “He has now embraced the five-star culture.”
Political circles are swirling that Kumaraswamy runs the legislature from a star lodging on Race Course Road, and not from Vidhana Soudha or his own or authority habitation. While the resistance has asked him who foots the month to month lodging bill of about Rs 25 lakh, a JD(S) laborer mourned: “We are shooed away at the inn door.”
His lavish Range Rover SUV has changed open recognition and individuals presently observe him in the ‘Billionaire boys ‘club’ rather than taking a gander at him as ‘badavara bandhu’ (savior of poor people).
Kumaraswamy’s authentic vehicle in 2006 was a Toyota Innova and he widely gone by street at that point. Presently, he’s a long standing customer. A RTI answer indicated Kumaraswamy had, in the initial nine months as boss priest, flown in personal jets and choppers multiple times and made negligible 23 travels. His rich way of life in the midst of dry spell has confused grassroots gathering specialists.
