Tuesday was her first day as pioneer of the House in the upper House of Karnataka council. The performer turned-serve Jayamala, 59, was cornered by the resistance BJP on different issues and the stalwarts of her gathering Congress stayed quiet onlookers without trying to safeguard the legislature and Jayamala.
Her absence of authoritative experience and for all intents and purposes no sponsorship by her own gathering associates aggravated the issue for the “fantasy young lady” of Kannada silver screen of yesteryears. The resistance BJP took the full favorable position of partitioned Congress on the very beginning.
The first run through MLC Jayamala’s enlistment into the JDS-Congress bureau multi month back had raised a few eyebrows and numerous senior MLC s had straightforwardly scrutinized the justification behind it. The five ladies MLA s from the Congress had likewise scrutinized the choice contending that pastoral compartment ought to have gone to a chosen lady MLA, rather than a selected MLC.
The senior MLCs from the Congress like H M Revanna, S R Patil, VS Ugrappa and CM Ibrahim who were peering toward the ecclesiastical compartment made their dismay open by avoiding party gatherings.
By the excellence of being the solitary clergyman among the MLCs Jayamala got the pined for post of pioneer of the House in the Vidhana Parishad. The state Mahila Congress president and MLA Lakshmi Hebbalkar was the most vocal in her restriction to Jayamala’s assignment to the gathering of pastors. Assaulting the high charge for disregarding her, Hebbalkar had said that they had favored Jayamala’s “administrations” over her “administrations” to the gathering.
It had incensed Jayamala and she had hit back at Hebbalkar calling her envious and inhumane towards another lady. A couple of ladies associations have likewise denounced the utilization of word “benefit”.
Nearby Kannada TV channels disclosed a few civil arguments on Jayamala versus Hebbalkar war of words making the entire scene considerably uglier making a colossal humiliation the Congress.
Around 20 Congress MLCs have just appealed to the gathering supervisors asking for them to influence one of the senior individuals to pastor and pioneer of the house.
The fingers are being pointed at the Congress responsible for Karnataka and AICC general secretary K C Venugopal. Gathering insiders consider Kerala MP in charge of Jayamala’s sudden political fortunes. Some contend that she owes the situation to previous boss priest Siddaramaiah who made her a MLC amid his administration.
A senior pioneer of the Congress said “it is either Venugopal or Siddaramaiah who made her a clergyman. Or on the other hand both take part in her height. She has zero political or administrative experience. By what method will she go up against the powerful BJP in the place of senior citizens? Normally, we are altogether disturbed and not participating with her. The Congress is in an awful shape. Without contemplating its unsafe position a few pioneers are making more damage it by advancing their colleagues for individual reasons”.
Her standing has additionally turned into an issue in the entire scene. Jayamala is a Billava or hard stuff tappers who have a sizable populace in waterfront and Malnad (uneven locale) Karnataka. The BJP cleared these two areas in the ongoing Assembly decisions. The Congress pioneers contend that a large portion of her position voted in favor of the BJP managing a final knockout to the gathering and influencing her a pastor to even after the survey fiasco makes no sense and thinking.
The BJP has made Kota Srinivasa Poojary who is likewise from the same Billave rank, pioneer of the resistance in the upper House and it has muddled the issues for the decision JDS-Congress collusion.
Addressing News18 Jayamala shielded her rise. She stated, “I am a PhD holder in political science from Bangalore University. I was the administrator of Karnataka Film Chambers. I have been in legislative issues since 1990s. Some desirous individuals are spreading a wide range of bits of gossip about me. I will demonstrate them wrong by performing admirably in the House”.
A portion of her supporters contend that Jayamala’s height has harmed the male self image and the male pioneers are contradicting her for that.
In any case, some senior MLCs junk such speculations asserting that amid BJP’s administration veteran Congress pioneer and a Dalit lady pioneer Motamma was pioneer of the restriction in the upper House and nobody had contradicted her at that point.
Jayamala had hit the national features 12 years by making a staggering case that she had entered the Sanctum Santorum at Aiyappa Swamy sanctuary in Sabarimala somewhere in the range of 30 years back. It had prompted a furore in Kerala and she was accused of harming religious estimations.
Later she was absolved by the court.
