Bengaluru, May 11: Karnataka BJP president BS Yeddyurappa has claimed that his party will come to power with the help of disgruntled Congress MLAs after results for the Lok Sabha polls are declared on May 23.

Speaking to reporters after meeting party leaders and workers here, Yeddyurappa said that as many as 20 Congress MLAs, who are unhappy with the way the JD(S)-Congress coalition government is functioning, are ready to switch sides to the BJP.

He further said: “The BJP’s strength in Assembly will increase from existing 104 to 106 after Kundgol and Chincholi by-elections. Two independent MLAs will support the BJP. Infighting in the Congress-JD(S) alliance is out in the open. The coalition partners are worried about the impact of the results of the Lok Sabha elections and Assembly bypolls on the government. Let us wait and see on the moves by the disgruntled Congress MLAs after May 23.”

“Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy is staying in a resort. The coalition government is not responding to people’s problems. The political atmosphere in the state has spurred us to work enthusiastically,” Yeddyurappa added.

This  man talks like ERFU.

 

At any cost he wants to be CM again by hook or crook. He doesn't hesitate to do any shameless thing to achieve his dream.

He is another pain  in ass in Karnataka like Modi.

 

God save us

Make your stand clear on 2015 caste census: HC to Karnataka govt

Bengaluru, Aug 11: The High Court has asked the government of Karnataka to make its stand clear whether it wants to make use of the caste census conducted by the previous government.

On Monday, the bench also asked the government if it wishes to publish the survey report. The caste census was conducted in April 2015 by the Siddaramaiah- led Congress government.

A division bench, headed by Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka, passed the direction on the batch of pending PILs filed challenging the caste census.

The bench said that the matter can be closed if the state government does not want to rely on the data or report of the census. The counsel appearing for the Union government informed the court that the state government has no power to conduct the caste-based survey. He said only the Centre can take up such exercise.  

The petitions were filed by Shivaraj Kanshetty and others. The petitions contended that the caste census was in violation of Articles 245 and 246 of the Constitution.

One arrested after false hospital video goes viral

News Network
July 19,2020

Bengaluru, Jul 19: A viral video claiming to show crowded condition of a hospital treating COVID-19 patients in the city was found to be false with police on Sunday arresting a person for allegedly circulating it on social media.

Police said such videos have the potential to create panic and asked people to refrain from spreading them.

The arrest was made within hours of the police announcing registration of a case in connection with the video that showed a crowd of people wearing masks at an "outpatient ward" of a hospital, falsely identified as Victoria Hospital, a major dedicated COVID facility here.

The video went viral on social media.

"City Crime Branch swiftly identified and arrested this person who has been circulating false videos of panic in Victoria Hospital, Bangalore. Kudos to all doctors and medical professionals who are doing their best. False news busted," Bengaluru Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao tweeted.

Police said such videos have the potential to create panic in society and asked people to refrain from it.

"Covid False video about conditions of hospitals in Bangalore circulated on social media. Case registered in Cybercrime PS. While government, society at large fighting the pandemic, some are creating/forwarding messages/videos which has potential to create panic in society. Refrain from it," Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, Sandeep Patil tweeted.

The video showed scores of people wearing masks gathered in a small space allegedly at an Out-Patient Department in a hospital, and a person filming it, claiming to be a doctor expressing concern that it was a threat to all medical staff, including the patients.

Official sources said the video was reportedly from a hospital in one of the northern states and not from Victoria Hospital.

Bengaluru gym owners gear up to reopen after 5-month hiatus

Bengaluru, Jul 31: Gyms in Bengaluru carried out sanitation work on Thursday following the Centre's nod to reopen gyms from August 5, after several weeks of COVID-induced lockdowns.

"We are taking all the precautionary measures prescribed by the government and will follow the guidelines very strictly. A thermal scanner, oximeter and hand sanitizers have been placed at the entrance of the gym. 

We request all other gym owners also to follow the guidelines strictly to keep their members safe and healthy," said Prasad Kumar, a gym owner in Bangalore.

He added, "The last few months have been very difficult for us gym owners and fitness instructors. We are very grateful to the government for allowing us to re-open. 

We are going to be very cautious when we open. Even before this COVID-19 pandemic, we used to sanitise all the equipment before and after every use so hopefully, this won't be too difficult for us. We are getting rid of the air conditioners to allow cross ventilation and open the space a little more."

According to Chandu Gowda, an actor and frequenter of the gym, working out at home was not the same as working out in the gym with the proper equipment.

"I'm very glad that I get to come back and work out as I used to before this lockdown. For an actor, working out is extremely important, not just for my physical health but also mental health. 

Doing exercises at home is never as good as exercising in a space dedicated to one purpose. I hope other members of the gym follow the rules and regulations religiously," Gowda said.
