It didn't surprise anyone in Karnataka when DeveGowda's 'kumara' refused to vacate CM's chair. Deve Gowda's chapter in Karnataka's political history comes in the section, BETRAYAL! Deve Gowda has a reputation of betraying his friends, at the slightest opportunity of power. Just before Yediyurappa, he betrayed Dharam Singh. Earlier, Bangarappa.
And everyone remembers how he ditched Ramakrishna Hegde to become a shocking PM choice. Though his latest betrayal hasn't surprised any of us, what surprises me is, how he's still been a force in the Karnataka politics and remains the Kingmaker!
May be Indian politics demands such foxy players!
