One thought on “Karnataka

  1. Mr.B.Somaskhar is worst politican in Karnataka.He has been already caught copying in exam during his Student Days. what petity ! same minister becomes Education minister under J.H Pated .he is most arrogant person as reported.

    It is repoted that his mother is begging for money and is fighting for basic needs. this fellow does not even take care of this mother.and even does not allow his own mother to enter his house.

    For proof you can go and visit Hooshalli which his is native place where his mother has become destitute and keeps on wandering for even one square meal.

    this person is corrupt.please don’t elect him as MLA of Mallavalli.this person has no feelings for his mother and does not take care take care ,then how come you expect him server the society. of mavalli .he is known for unfriendly nature.
    What piety MR.B.Somasekhar does not know his basic humanity.,

    if you want see his mother you can see her in Hosahalli Village,Belagodi post, wandering around without food and water properly.
