Bengaluru, Jul 13: Former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Monday said that the state government should provide vitamin C drug, Ayush Ministry-certified immunity boosters and sanitisers to every household in the wake of the coronavirus spread.

"Karnataka government should provide vitamin C drug, Ayush Ministry-certified immunity boosters and sanitisers to every household to fight against COVID-19," Kumaraswamy told media.

The JDS leader further stated that "appropriate medication should be provided to those who are "symptomatic" by the Karnataka government and added that "by taking such measures the government can halt the spread of the virus."

If the government is not able to provide the health kit to everyone then at least they should give it to the BPL families, he added.

Kumaraswamy also stressed upon organising awareness campaigns about the coronavirus and use of supplements among the masses to prevent themselves from contracting the infection.

According to the Union Health Ministry, Karnataka has recorded 38,843 cases of COVID-19 to date.

Bengaluru, Jan 13: Minutes after Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa announced the list of seven new ministers, dissatisfaction erupted in the Karnataka BJP with many MLAs questioning the parameters for selection of ministers in the state Cabinet.

The addition of three MLCs - MTB Nagaraj, CP Yogeeshwar and R Shankar -  also irked the MLAs seeking Cabinet berths. Apart from the three, DyCM Laxman Savadi and Muzrai minister Kota Srinivas Poojary are also MLCs, taking the tally of ministers from the Legislative Council to five.

Bommanahalli MLA M Satish Reddy, in a tweet, rued that young workers of the party were being ignored. What are the parameters for selection of ministers during Cabinet expansion, Reddy asked Yediyurappa. 

"What are the reasons for you, state and national leadership to not consider loyal young karyakartas of the party (for the Cabinet)? The absence of late Union Minister Ananthkumar - who had an ear for our woes - is very clear," he said.

CM’s political secretary MP Renukacharya, who was vying for a Cabinet berth, alleged that only those who lobbied for posts were inducted. "This is just a Bengaluru-Belagavi Cabinet," he said, referring to the large number of ministers hailing from the two districts. Injustice has been meted out to the Central Karnataka region, he added.

MLC AH Vishwanath, who was among the MLAs from the Congress-JD(S) coalition to resign in 2019 over assurance of being made ministers, lashed out at the CM for not keeping his word. Yediyurappa succumbed to pressure from Yogeeshwar, Vishwanath said, citing that as the reason for the CM to drop him from the list of ministers.

Earlier in the day, MLAs GH Thippareddy and Nehru Olekar had also expressed displeasure over Cabinet expansion.

Kalaburagi, Jan 13: Tur growers of six districts in Kalyan Karnataka region on Wednesday expressed concern as government agency sold the old stock of Tur below Minimum Support price (MSP ) amid the new Tur procurement period.

According to the Karnataka Pranta Raith Sangh President Sharanabasappa Managashetty, the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (NAFED) has started stalling last year's Tur stocks in the open market below the MSP and this has become a major concern among the Tur growers.

Mr Managashetty said 'the NAFED is selling last year's old Tur stock at pricing ranging from Rs 5,300 to Rs 5.800 per quintals in the open market which has created a situation where farmers are forced to compete with the government in the open market.'

Some sections of Tur farmers fear that traders might buy their crops at lower prices from NAFED and sell it back to the government posing as farmers, he said.

The Centre Government has fixed Rs 6,000 per quintal as the MSP for Tur for 2020-21, up from last fiscal which was Rs 5,800 and this year the state government plans to buy 20 quintals at the new MSP from each farmer, the registration process for the same has started.

Jewargi MLA, Dr Ajay Dharm Singh has strongly criticised state government for this anti farmers behaviour and demanded immediate withdrawal of selling old stock of Tur from government agencies and announced the initiative for Tur growers in the region.
