trying hard for vokkaliga votes for 2023….
Great statue of Kempe Gowda in who’s name our Bengaluru International airport is. With the new terminal T2 too opening, our airport is at par or more than many large airports in Asia or perhaps many GCC and European countries too. Haters who land here now can experience this Garden Terminal and relish the Kempe Gowda statue too. New terminal directly provide jobs to 10K and indirectly another 20K. If this is not development, then what is dear haters. Perfectly understand your utter inner frustrations and deep heart jealousy!
This is how India plans to win tech war with China. LOL.
Next they will sell this Airport to Adani for 40% ,Bhakto’s need only Chembu and statue for garlanding ( evening one Thotte- uppad).
It’s already sold you idiot. 74% of the shares are owned by Private Players. Govt has no much say in it.
Where is Karnataka BJP chief? Who only chants Congress is missing from the nataka (drama).
Namo know peoples weak point, Bhaktos need statues every where.
Government has monetised its airport assets … Almost nil stake in Bangalore airport .. ..In other words sold .. govt has sold in last 8 years many other assets .. Despite this high level expensive inaugural’s etc etc All airport fliers .. related services …inconveniences.. All for elections .. vote bank .. (Indira Gandhi late prime minister was disqualified for misuse off Govt machinery …)..
Excellent idea. The Statue of Prosperity looks good…
ಪ್ರಜೆಗಳು ಪ್ರತಿಮೆಗಳ ಪೂಜಿಸುತಿರೆ, ಪ್ರತಿನಿಧಿಗಳು ಪ್ರತಿಮೆಗಲ್ಲವೇ ಪ್ರಾಮುಖ್ಯ ಕಲ್ಪಿಸುವುದು . ಪ್ರಜೆಗಳು ಯೋಚಿಸಿ , ಪ್ರಥಮ ಪ್ರಾಮುಖ್ಯ ,ಪ್ರಗತಿ ಗೆ ಕೊಟ್ಟರೆ ಪ್ರತಿನಿಧಿಗಳು ಯಾವನ ಪ್ರತಿಮೆ ಕಟ್ಟ್ಯಾರು ?
Kempegowda belonged to Indian National Congress party. Now BJP is honouring Congress leaders to win the next elections. 6000 police officers were involved in feku security. Crores of taxpayers money was spent on this statue when people are facing near starvation in Karnataka due to price rises. It is time to get rid of this corrupt BJP government.
Cliffy…Government offering free ration..where is question arises of starvation. From next month onwards will also give kuchaliki rice to prepare ganjee four times a day. Instead of eating Pizza/Burger pls opt for ganjee will help to sharpen your brain.
nagpur gulams are bending like mughal slaves in front of chaiwala….he must be laughing at the fear of the blue j pigs of karu nadu….
Real Kujuma…Where are they now khandan of Mughals who ruled in India. Kaisi Karni Waisi Barni. Looted money never retain for a long.
only statue building….renaming of circles and roads after 2014…ullu banawing the goof public of this country….drama master knows how easy is to fool the public of this country…Gujju brain always thinking of fooling and cheating others.
Utter waste, for birds to sit and shit on these statue. Our roads are bad and infrastructure in a pathetic condition.
To unveil the Statue of Nadaprabhu MahaMahima Kempegowda and so also Parama Hari Bhaktha, Tatwagyani, Dasashreshta Kanakadasa on the same day can happen only at the hands of the Most Deserved ! Who else but our PM Modi ! The devout will understand. This is and should be devoid of politics. And also to inaugurate the Vande Bharat Train, making Blore -Kashi Yaatra more economical, enjoyable and also the inauguration of the Fab Terminal 2 at the Blore Airport.. C’mon folks it’s the moment to rejoice looking at the developments ! Really and honestly and from the heart ! It’s our India and why should anyone nitpick even on these occasions?
All big projects he is giving to Gujarat and giving statue to Karnataka. Shame on BJP.
Our Karnataka Bhaktos will be always happy with Chembu and Thortte.
I don’t understand the value of statues? So many crores are wasted to build statues which are of no use … future generations really doesn’t bother to give priotise to statues…instaed give some good roads and infrastructure
yaradu duddu yallamma jatre
Presently government stake in this almost fully privatised airport is at bare minimum .. a Canadian Company fairfax has most of the stake …. Land allotted and all ground works existing terminal which is known as terminal one done by previous government fully functioning.. This is expansion by private companies… There are still works to be completed with reference to approach roads etc
For karnataka government..Bangalore is the only city in state and bangalore airport is the only airport for development….rest all are neglected….
There is NO love towards okkaliga community or backward or valmiki community now building staues this party is trying some votes ,Anything and everything they do just to grab peoples vote nothing else. fast 8 years they have not done nothing for these communities now elections are nearing .
What a waste of Tax payers money on Statue and on Feku security.. young generation don’t have employment and his fake promises 2 Cr employment . No medical infrastructure .. senior citizens are suffering . Feku is wasting tax payers m ok ney .. No improvement in Karnataka..
No statue can hide the hatred and violence that you have created with the help of bhakts and Godi Media.
Readers, PM Modiji is on a whirlwind tour of South India.. He unveiled the majestic statue of Kempegowda, thereby sending a message loud and clear of ” Development ” to the chagrin, frustrated, disoriented detractors across India….
Achievement of BJP party
People sitting in Riyadh, Dubai, Kuwait are jealous on having world class airport terminal and staute of prosperity….yelle ooruge barodanna nikulu….oil kaali aanaga🤣🤣🤣
What are you doing in Dubai then? Go back immediately and enjoy benefits of vishwaguru economy.
Sampath, DxB My friend nobody is jealous .Everyone are happy that we have a nice airport . People are feeling bad so much money wasted for Modi arrival for inngraution .Crores are spent for his security .why is he so much afraid ??????. 6000 polices deployed for what ???? CM has forced that all students should attend the programme for what?????. When a PM vsits any place there should be inconvenience or problems to public
Then y you are earning in Dubai I think you to know that feku cannot give u job or the salary u get in india is very less right People want jobs hear come to india and see that u get a job
Sunak and his team back stabbed us we cannot trust them they are antinational.
@Sampath, DXB…. Is this is the first world class airport in the world? Certainly for frogs… Not for people who have gone round the world. Jealousy for statue of prosperity? Building statues won’t wipe out prosperity. Putting the tax payers money for the right purpose will. This is why you should get educated in formal schools. Shakha mein jaaoge toh your kind of comments are expected. How do you say ‘grow up’ in tulu? 😉 😉 😉
Senseless government. Whose money after all ? Is that called development? At this rate they may demand Modi’s statue while living !
Thanks Flavian for God given opportunity to serve in foreign land still in ripe age. Madidu palisu. In India each and everybody having a blissful life.
People want food young generation want jobs Elder citizens want medical aid Bussiness man want rupee to be strong DAILY MANY COMMITING SUCIDE PLEASE SAVE THE CITIZENS AND YOUNG GENERATION WE DON’T WANT SATUTES ITS NATIONAL WASTE
If someone commits suicide due to joblessness Baaja Party ko ghanta farq nahi padta. They will be more than happy. 5 kgs PDS rice and kerosene oil bach gaya! Statues need of the hour. Please build more and more. ; ) 😉 😉
Fayaaz…First of all we will need our nation’s foundation strong which shaken earlier from invaders from time to time. For that reason BJP united 70% people to tackle mostly islamic radicals who threat to the nation. Once everything proceeded smoothly will think of other issues which dealt easily. We are richest country in the world..wealth accumulated in large numbers in all the temples more than equal to world’s wealth.
@ Prakash, Manipala, Please state the source and unit of measurement to claim ‘richest’. Which research organization has measured the wealth of this world country by country?
Statues are more important 🤣🤣🤣
