Addressing a press conference, she said, out of the Rs 12,000 crore, Rs 1,600 crore will be given to north-eastern states and Rs 900 crore will be for Uttrakhand and Himachal Pradesh.

She said Rs 7,500 crore will be for the remaining states. Rs 2,000 crore will be given to states that fulfill pre-stated reforms.

Vijayapura, Oct 20: Karnataka Chief Minister will soon be changed as most senior leaders in the state are not happy with BS Yediyurappa, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal has said.

"Chief Minister will be changed soon as most of the senior leaders in the state are not happy with BS Yediyurappa. PM Modi also said that the next Chief Minister will be from North Karnataka," Yatnal said at a public gathering in Vijayapura on Monday.

He said that Yediyurappa became the Chief Minister after the people of North Karnataka elected 100 MLAs of the BJP to power. "Mandya and other South Karnataka districts didn't make him Chief Minister," Yatnal said.

Earlier, eight times MLA and senior BJP leader Umesh Katti had said that he does not want to become a minister in the present government; instead, he wants to become the Chief Minister of Karnataka from North Karnataka region.

Notably, Umesh Katti, Basangouda Patil Yatnal, Murugesh Nirani, Ramesh Katti, CP Yogishwar, Rajugowda and many others had held secret meetings against Yediyurappa leadership at unknown locations in the state multiple times earlier this year.

Bengaluru, Oct 21: The continuing thundershowers left many roads waterlogged through Tuesday night, even as the weather bureau predicted that the rains would pound the city until Friday.

As per the data from Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC), areas in western and southern Bengaluru received between 11 mm and 71.5 mm of rainfall.

Officials in the BBMP control room said there were no complaints of tree fall but waterlogging was reported from Nayandahalli, Kengeri, Agara, Halasuru, Sivananda circle, Mehkri Circle and several other areas. At the Sivananda Circle underpass, BBMP officials had to rush to clear the water that choked up traffic for a long time.

Basavanagudi, Jayanagar, BTM Layout, Koramangala, Sampangi Ramanagar, Rajajinagar, Malleswaram, Manjunath Nagar, Dasarahalli, Hebbal, RT Nagar, Yelahanka and other areas received heavy rains.

While the KSNDMC forecast heavy rainfall in the BBMP area for the next two days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a yellow alert for the city.

A mini-truck got stuck in a manhole on Mysuru Road, leading to a lengthy traffic jam. Police arrived at the spot and restored vehicular movement.

Residents of Mallattahalli whose houses were flooded in the rains two days ago relived the nightmare once again on Tuesday.
