Congress-JDS alliance indulges the whims of their Minority Minister: Gives him the Fortuner as demanded

The Karnataka minority minister and Congress leader, B Z Zameer Ahmed Khan desirous of getting a Fortuner car got his demand met by the Karnataka government as reported by India Today. Wanting to avoid this kind of internal unrest, Kumaraswamy, the new CM was quick on meeting the minister’s demand just a day ahead of the budget that he would be presenting.

Considering VVIP treatment as their birthright, Karnataka Minister and Congress leader B Z Zameer Ahmed Khan last month demanded that an Innova car, which was allotted to him, is ‘low level’ and since has travelled in big cars since childhood, he should be given a Fortuner for official use. When questioned by India Today, he said that since he used to a particular standard of living and had various health issues forbidding him to travel in a ‘low level’ car, his demand was justified.

Commenting on Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s decision to use his personal car for official use, Khan had said since Kumaraswamy is ‘popular’, people will easily recognize him in whichever car he uses. But since he is yet to reach that level, he will be ‘visible’ to people only if he is travelling in a government car. Hence he asked for a Fortuner.

However, when this news of him demanding a big car last month was doing the rounds, attracting a lot of criticisms for the same, he came out to blame the media for exaggerating his demand for a Toyota Fortuner SUV for official use.

“Media has made it a huge issue. I simply made a request for an SUV, and not for any particular brand. Am I asking for Lexus or BMW? I am used to travelling in an SUV. One has to tour the entire district. I am asking for a car under the government provision,” he told media here.

B Z Zameer Ahmed Khan had few days post this squabble raised another controversy by demanding to rename the Haj Bhavan.

A few days ago he came up with a suggestion that the Haj Bhavan, which accommodates Haj pilgrims, be renamed after Tipu Sultan. But after strong opposition from the BJP, the minister backtracked saying, ‘I did not say it must be renamed, it was only a request.’ When this raised altercations the minister backtracked by saying that he had received requests from various districts and since it was a public demand he merely gave them a voice.

Everything said and done, it is rather intriguing that in mere desperation to somehow make this alliance work, the Karnataka government in trying to keep its flock together is fulfilling any and every ludicrous demand coming their way.
