Don’t damage my govt’s image; take your complaints to Delhi: BSY to disgruntled MLAs

Bengaluru, Jan 14: Frustrated over dissidence in the Karnataka BJP after cabinet expansion, chief minister B S Yediyurappa today asked the disgruntled legislators to complain to party high command instead of blaming his government. 

"If any of the MLAs have reservations (about Cabinet expansion), let them go to Delhi and complain about it to the BJP national leadership," he told reporters on Thursday.

The legislators should not damage the image of BJP in the state by making remarks against the government, Yediyurappa said. 

The chief minister is again battling disgruntlement from various MLAs of the state BJP unit following the much delayed Cabinet expansion on Wednesday. 

While Vijayapura MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal and MLC A H Vishwanath alleged that Yediyurappa had succumbed to 'blackmail' and inducted ministers, others such as MLAs M Satish Reddy and Arvind Bellad lashed out for not accommodating young leaders of the party in the Cabinet.

"They can go to Delhi. Party leaders will decide what is right and what is wrong," he said.

On why R R Nagar MLA Muniratna was not inducted, Yediyurappa declined to comment. Muniratna was among the 17 MLAs of the Congress-JD(S) coalition to resign in 2019, and was assured a Cabinet berth before the BJP high command advised against it ahead of expansion.

Indore, Feb 20: Ujjain-based doctor Krati Jain became the first woman in Madhya Pradesh to be felicitated with 13 gold medals and one silver medal for topping in medical studies.

She had received eight gold medals and one silver medal from Governor Anandiben Patel at her convocation ceremony at Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya on Friday.

Dr Krati, who hails from the Ujjain district, had completed her MBBS in 2018 from Mahatma Gandhi Memorial College, which is among the three collages that come under Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya, Indore. She had topped in all three colleges.

Speaking to ANI, Dr Krati said: "Today I am very happy to receive these eight gold medals and one silver medal for becoming an overall MBBS topper of the university and all subject topper in the final year. I received five gold medals earlier in every year of the course."

"MBBS is a tough course but I had the support of my parents and the guidance of my teachers. On top of that medical was my primary interest that is why I was able to focus more. I have completed my graduation degree in 2018 and I am now pursuing a Master's degree in Radiology," she said.

Advising the students who could not focus on the studies, Dr Krati said that studying your favourite subject more can reduce stress and boredom.

"The more time you spend studying your favourite subject, the more you will be interested and you will be able to understand the subject in a better way," she added.

Apart from the State Governor, Higher Education Minister Mohan Yadav was also present at the convocation event.

Kolkata, Feb 24: The police on Tuesday night arrested BJP leader Rakesh Singh from Galsi area of West Bengals Purba Bardhaman district in connection with his alleged involvement in a drug seizure case, a senior officer said.

His two sons were also arrested by the Kolkata Police's narcotics section for stopping its personnel from entering the residence of the BJP state committee member in the port area of the city, he said.

Pamela Goswami, state secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), was arrested along with a friend and her personal security guard from south Kolkata's New Alipore area on February 19 after seizing around 90 gm of cocaine from her car. Goswami then alleged that it was a conspiracy of Singh.

The Kolkata police served a notice to Singh asking him to appear before investigators at Kolkata Police headquarters Lalbazar during the day in connection with the case. However, he said that he is travelling to Delhi for some work and appear before the police on February 26.

The BJP leader is being brought to Kolkata, the officer said.

San Francisco, Feb 23: Boeing has recommended that airlines ground all 777s with the type of engine that blew apart after takeoff from Denver this past weekend, and most carriers that fly those planes said they would temporarily pull them from service.

The US Federal Aviation Administration ordered United Airlines to step up inspections of the aircraft after one of its flights made an emergency landing at Denver International Airport on Saturday as pieces of the engine's casing rained on suburban neighbourhoods.

None of the 231 passengers or 10 crew were hurt, and the flight landed safely, authorities said.

United is among the carriers that has grounded the planes.

FAA Administrator Steve Dickson identified the focus on the stepped-up inspections as hollow fan blades unique to the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engine model and used solely on Boeing 777s.

Dickson's statement said the conclusion was based on an initial review of safety data and would likely mean grounding some planes.

Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, said during a virtual news conference Monday night that a fractured fan blade found in the engine had visible signs of damage consistent with metal fatigue.

The broken blade hit and fractured the blade next to it as the engine broke apart, according to a preliminary investigation.

Sumwalt said the blade that fractured first was being flown on a private jet to Pratt & Whitney's headquarters Monday night to be examined under the supervision of NTSB investigators.

Our mission is to understand not only what happened, but why it happened, so that we can keep it from happening again, he said.

Boeing said there were 69 777s with the Pratt & Whitney 4000-112 engines in service and another 59 in storage and affirmed they should be grounded until the FAA sets up an inspection regime.

United had 24 of the planes in service; it is the only US airline with the engine in its fleet, according to the FAA.

Two Japanese airlines have another 32. Japan ordered the planes out of service, according to the financial newspaper Nikkei, while noting that an engine in the same family had trouble in December.

In South Korea, Asiana Airlines grounded nine, seven of which were in service, and Korean Air said it grounded 16 aircraft, six of which are in service.

We are working with these regulators as they take actions while these planes are on the ground and further inspections are conducted by Pratt & Whitney," Boeing said in a statement, referring to American and Japanese regulators.

The engine maker said it was sending a team to work with investigators.

The emergency landing this past weekend is the latest trouble for Boeing, which saw its 737 Max planes grounded for more than a year after two deadly crashes in 2019 and is suffering amid the huge reduction in air travel due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Max planes began returning to the skies late last year a huge boost for the aircraft maker, which lost billions during the grounding because it has been unable to deliver new planes to customers.

Video posted on Twitter from Saturday's emergency showed the engine fully engulfed in flames as the plane flew.

Freeze frames from different video taken by a passenger sitting slightly in front of the engine and also posted on Twitter appeared to show a broken fan blade in the engine.

Passengers, who were headed to Honolulu, said they feared the plane would crash after an explosion and flash of light, while people on the ground saw huge chunks of the aircraft pour down, just missing one home and crushing a truck. The explosion, visible from the ground, left a trail of black smoke in the sky.

United says it will work closely with the FAA and the NTSB to determine any additional steps that are needed to ensure these aircraft meet our rigorous safety standards and can return to service.

The NTSB said the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder were transported to its lab in Washington so the data can be analyzed. NTSB investigations can take up to a year or longer, although in major cases the agency generally releases some investigative material midway through the process.

Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said an engine in the PW4000 family suffered trouble on a Japan Airlines 777 flying to Tokyo from Naha on December 4.

The airline has said the plane had engine trouble after takeoff and returned to Naha. An inspection showed damage to the engine case and missing fan blades, according to the airline. Stricter inspections were ordered in response.

Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways will stop operating a combined 32 planes with that engine, Nikkei reported.
