Mr. Yeddyurappa's stroke of genius

Speaking at a function to unveil the statue of a Tamil poet in Benglauru, Mr. Yeddyurappa, chief minister of Karnataka is quoted to have said:
All farmers, irrespective of their language, should get water to their crop. Both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu Governments should make sure that the crops do not perish for want of water. Thiruvalluvar and Sarvajna’s words should guide us in every walk of life.
Ah - what a stroke of genius! All farmers should get water to their crop. Wow! Hey, if only human beings knew this before today!

Little does Mr. Yeddyurappa know, or even seem to give a damn, about the fact that farmers on the Karnataka side of the border have themselves perished because of being historically cheated and denied their legal share of Kaveri water by the British and now by the Central Govt which is always under electoral blackmail by Tamil Nadu.

To whom must Kannadigas direct their centuries old pain, their anguish, their agony, the cries of the families of all those farmers? To Mr. Yeddyurappa's govt. which treats both Tamils and Kannadigas "on par"? Nobody, nobody with any grey cells can believe that this govt. - driven by reality avoidance - has what it takes to set right the wounds that Tamil Nadu is inflicting on Kannadigas right under its nose as we speak - let alone historical wounds!
