BJP on moral grounds should not accept these 17 tainted MLAs. BJP should field new candidates with good educational qualifications preferably from the RSS cadre like how they selected the brilliant Tejaswi Surya as Bangalore south MP. This will motivate the Karnataka electorate to vote for such clean non controversial candidates. The ground level workers of BJP also will be motivated to all-out campaign for good candidates depending on the castewise make up of respective constituency.


SC should have put expenses of bye election on these MLAs than on exchequer.


karnataka should vote for bjp in the bye election after seeing mahsrashtra for stable government


If BJP give tickets to these 17 ex-MLAs, for the ensuing Bye-election, at the cost of loyal workers, they (loyal workers) will ensure defeat of these Turn-coats.

What a hypocrisy. On one hand BJP is shouting Congress as corrupt. But when the same members of Congress join them, they welcome them with red carpet. Ultimately common man is the fool.


Basically sainthood ceremony for criminals.


In the nation''s highest court of justice the gayarams are out, but they are allowed to be ayarams in another party, and in to the same assembly once again deceiving public in by elections. This ''anti Ayaram gayaram law'' is really confusing the citizens of the country.

This is the problem with party ideologies. People should stop supporting parties. Support a candidate based on his/her performance irrespective of party x or y or z. No party is pure and no party is completely corrupt. People should stick to candidate rather than party while voting.


Now the cat out of the bag. There''s now a lot of rumbling would start from the BJP cadre. Why they are digging their own grave in Karnataka?
