Photo of author

Bittoo: Bapu.

Bapu: Yes Bittoo.

Bittoo: Some seers and politicians are up in arms against the State government and demanding separate statehood for North Karnataka region Bapu?

Bapu: That’s obvious when a government continues to neglect and fails to do justice to the people leading to regional imbalance within same State.

Bittoo: It is the same reason now or is it because some of the prominent legislators from the region were denied of berth in the JD(S)-Congress coalition government Bapu?

Bapu: I don’t know Bittoo!

Bittoo: And Bapu.

Bapu: Anything else Bittoo?

Bittoo: This demand has been surfacing time and again in different parts of the region for atleast three decades and died for reasons never explained to people. What will happen this time Bapu?

Bapu: I don’t know Bittoo.

Bittoo: And Bapu, will the issues of regional imbalances be resolved if some manage to get into the ministry and grab plum posts in Boards and Corporations Bapu?

Bapu: I don’t know Bittoo!

This is a citizen-centric new column, wherein the author(Bitto) is an ordinary, politically unaffiliated common man of the city who in his/her inimitable approach takes up various issues with the Bapu’s soul! Apparently, the interaction between them portrays ironies of sorts encountered by the common man and others in the city in a lighter vein. The author’s name will not be disclosed to the readers as he/she represents the common man of the society. This column aims at creating awareness and sensitising cross sections of our city on various issues of public concern only but in a lighter vein without holding any contempt against any institution or individual.
