Mukhyamantri can't. Only Mukhyamantri can.

While we appreciate the stern reply given by Mukhyamantri Yeddyurappa to Lalu Prasad Yadav in the bullet-train episode, he has fallen short of walking the "Kannada implementation year" talk.

One cannot but pity the second and perennial Mukhyamantri of Karnataka - Chandru - for being powerless in checking the real Mukhyamantri's failure in getting any real Kannada implementation done (after all the fanfare). Here's a fresh non-compliance report of Yeddyurappa:

Kannada Development Authority (KDA) chairman Mukhyamantri Chandru, has demanded action against officials of BBMP for not printing SAS applications and brochures in Kannada. “I will give six days time to the government. If action is not initiated against erring officials, I will decide my future course of action," he said.
The problem is, of course, all the talk of "future course of action" is just rhetoric; nothing will happen in the next six days, and there isn't any action of any considerable magnitude that Mukhyamantri Chandru can take unless there's a serious revision of the powers of the KDA. And the responsibility for such a revision rests on the real Mukhyamantri, not his namesake.

We believe Mukhyamantri has done his job. Now will Mukhyamantri show that he's the kind that walks the talk?
