In an impassioned address to the people of his Shiggaon seat in this area, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai emphasised that nothing is permanent in this world, including offices and positions, fueling speculation in some quarters about his likely exit.
“Nothing lasts forever in this world. This life will not last indefinitely. We don’t know how long we’ll be in this scenario, and these jobs and positions aren’t permanent. Every minute, I am aware of this truth “he stated
Mr Bommai expressed gratitude to his constituents by saying that he is only ‘Basavaraj’ to them and not the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister was speaking to the crowd after dedicating a statue to Kittur Rani Chennamma, a 19th-century queen from Kittur in Belagavi district who opposed the British.
“I’ve always said that outside of this location (Shiggaon), I’ve served as Home Minister and Irrigation Minister, but once inside, I was just ‘Basavaraj’ to you all.
Today, as Chief Minister, I am stating that while I may be Chief Minister outside of Shiggaon, I will continue to be known as Basavaraj Bommai among you, since the name Basavaraj is permanent, not the positions “, he expressed his thoughts.
Bommai is rumoured to be on the verge of being replaced, according to certain sources.
The Chief Minister is said to be suffering from a knee ailment and may seek treatment abroad, but no formal statement has been released on this.
The Chief Minister, who became tearful twice, recalled being fed ‘Rotti’ (Jowar Roti) and ‘Navane’ (foxtail millet) rice with fondness every time he visited his constituency as Basavaraj.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t have anything to say. That would be enough for me if I could meet your expectations. No power, in my opinion, is greater than your love and faith.
I try not to be emotional when I speak to you, but emotions overtake me after seeing you all “Mr Bommai choked out his words.
Noting that he had a significant responsibility to prepare for the state’s long-term growth and to respond to the demands and aspirations of every community, he said.
“He always kept his conscience awake every moment and in every deed,” the Chief Minister stated.
Mr Bommai was appointed Chief Minister on July 28 after BS Yediyurappa resigned on his two-year anniversary in office.
