Bengaluru, Sept 26: Hardliner BJP leader and Member of Parliament from Bengaluru South Tejasvi Surya has been appointed new president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), party's youth wing.

Surya will replace another BJP MP Poonam Mahajan as the president of the BJYM.

The 29-year-old lawmaker won the 2019 Lok Sabha election by defeating Congress' B K Hariprasad by over 3 lakh votes.

Surya was an active member of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and was even the general secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM).

The BJYM, like the BJP has a similar structure, with a President, Vice Presidents, General Secretaries, Secretaries and Executive members, with the National Executive being the highest decision making body of the BJYM. At the state level, a similar structure is in place.

Many prominent BJP leaders including Kalraj Mishra, Rajnath Singh and Shivraj Singh Chouhan have been the national presidents of the BJYM in past.

Abu Dhabi, Sept 15: A Mangaluru-origin youth is part of an international research team that has developed a tool to keep track of the mutations of the Covid-19 virus.

Elston Neil D'Souza, the youngest member of the team led by University of Melbourne associate professor David Ascher, helped create the tool called Covid-3D, which harnesses genomic and protein information about the virus. He was a former resident of Abu Dhabi.

The changing structures of the virus make it challenging for experts to develop drugs and vaccines; so by monitoring these mutations, Covid-3D becomes an important instrument in the fight against the pandemic.

During the research, D'Souza and his team analysed more than 120,000 samples of the novel coronavirus from infected patients globally. D'Souza, with eight others, co-authored the research paper, which has been peer reviewed and published in the scientific journal 'Nature Genetics'.

"With the large amounts of data collected and shared across the world, this pandemic has seen the use of innovative techniques such as genomic sequencing, machine learning and data-sharing. We developed Covid-3D using this vast amount of data," said D'Souza, an alumnus of Adnoc Schools, Ruwais. He has finished his degree in computational biology at the University of Melbourne and he is now doing another course.

"This tool is an open and freely accessible Web resource that can help researchers around the world."

D'Souza graduated from Adnoc Schools in 2016 and he attributes a large part of this success to the quality education he received in the Capital. "I am grateful for the many opportunities to learn and grow when I was a science student at Adnoc Schools. I thank the UAE for showing me the importance of working hard with a diverse group of individuals," the 22-year-old added. His parents are still residing in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

Bengaluru, Sept 28: AICC spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, who is in charge of party affairs in Karnataka on Monday, held the ruling BJP government led by Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa responsible for the Bandh and urged him to ban and banish the anti-farmer-labour mindset.

In a tweet, he urged Yediyurappa to withdraw the amendments and tender apologise for the blatant sell out by the BJP on Land Reforms Bill and repeal the draconian amendments to APMC Act. This is your litmus test!

How can Yeddyurappa & his turncoat Cabinet sleep at night as #COVID19 deaths cross 8,500 in the state. With 5,75,000 #COVID cases, and over 1 lakh active cases, the daily spike has crossed the 9,000 mark, he added.
