Mangaluru, Jul 7: The government of Kerala has barred movement of daily pass holders — professionals and workers — between Kasaragod district and Karnataka’s Dakshina Kannada district following a spurt in COVID-19 cases.

Kerala Revenue Minister E. Chandrasekaran announced the decision at a meeting on Monday in Kasaragod. Both district administrations had in June issued passes to daily travellers in their districts to travel in connection with their work.

Those from Dakshina Kannada intending to work in Kasaragod have to remain in Kasaragod for 28 days if they wish to continue and those from Kasaragod would have to remain in Dakshina Kannada for 28 days if they wish to continue their work, the Minister said.

Thousands from Kasaragod travel daily to Mangaluru and surrounding areas in connection with their work. Their travel past Talapady check post on NH 66 was facilitated by daily e-passes.

Similarly, many from Dakshina Kannada, particularly doctors and healthcare workers, travel daily to Kasaragod with daily e-passes issued by the Kasaragod administration.

Panaji, Jan 12: Union Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik, who was seriously injured after his car hit a tree in Ankola in Karnataka on Monday night, is now stable and under observation, said Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.

"His condition was a bit critical, but he is very much stable now. There is no risk to his life. He is under stable and under observation. He will have to undergo two minor operations. He has suffered two fractures," Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday and asked him to ensure the best medical treatment for Naik. Naik's wife and an aide, who were travelling with him, succumbed to their injuries.

After he was administered first-aid at a local hospital in Ankola, Naik was rushed to the Goa Medical College, the state' apex health facility late on Monday night.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh too spoke to Sawant and offered any assistance required, including air-lifting the minister, who is an MP from North Goa.

Singh tweeted, "I am shocked and extremely saddened by the news of Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik being injured in a road accident. I spoke to Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant. The state government is ensuring best treatment for Shripadji. I pray for the speedy recovery of Shripadji."

According to Sawant, the Union Defence Minister had also offered the services of an air ambulance for shifting him to the national capital for treatment.

"The Defence Minister has assured that he will send across an air ambulance if required. The PM has just sought a follow up from me. According to doctors who are treating him, there is no need to airlift him," Sawant also said.

After talking to the PM and the Union Defence Minister, the Goa CM had directed the doctors of the medical college to ensure best treatment for the minister.

Naik was travelling by car along with his wife and an aide in the north Kannada district as part of a private visit when his car overturned near Yallapura.

Bengaluru, Jan 3: Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Dr C N Ashwattha Narayana on Sunday appealed to the opposition parties not to politicise the Covid -19 vaccine.

Speaking to reporters after participating in the 'Chitra Santhe' (Art Fair) held here, he said the opposition should make constructive and value based suggestions to the government. The opposition parties have no other issues, making statements on serious covid-19 vaccine instead of cooperating with the government in curbing spread of the virus.

It is welcome that the central government has approved Bharat Biotech to vaccinate the country. "The first phase of vaccination will be given to covid warriors and those who are in the forefront fighting against this covid-19.

He said India has a large population and the government will welcome companies providing vaccines. The sanctioned action is a good step for Bharat Biotech.

He said that the union government has been taking steps to provide every one vaccine and it will be provided on the priority basis.
