What a great Chief Minister!Most of us have surely forgotten Kargil. After all, as worshippers of non-violence, we must forget the painful episodes of war! But let some of us try to remember. Indian Army's first success after many unsuccessful attempts was at Tololing. Rajputana Rifles scripted the victory at Tololing. The victory at Tololing changed the course of the entire battlefield and the infiltrators were kicked out by July, 1999 from all Indian positions. The Commanding Officer of 2nd Rajputana Rifles was Col. MB. Ravindranath, who was instrumental for the victory at Ttololing.
This gallant son of Karnataka was living in Bengaluru after his retirement. He left this world on 8th April after suffering a massive heart attack. The entire State Government ignored this great hero of the state. No state respect was given to him.
On the other hand, a woman journalist who was assassinated a year ago by unknown miscreants, was given state respect. She used dirty languages against the state, the country the leadership. Due to her extreme dirty language, she was the cynosure of the eyes of liberals and anti-nationals. After her death, her body was cremated with state honour. But a gallant Army Officer, a pride for Karnataka, has been ignored by the Chief Minister.
What a great Chief Minister he is!
