Bengaluru, Nov 28: In view of the increase in power tariff by the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission, apartments in Bengaluru are opting for solar panels to save both money and the environment.

This comes after the state government earlier this month had announced an over 5 per cent surge in power tariff.

"It really helps us because they are raising electricity bills. After doing a detailed analysis of this plan we formed a subcommittee within our apartment. It makes more sense now when the electricity price is going up," said Vishnu, Bangalore Apartments' Federation Secretary for Whitefield 1 and 2 clusters.

Harsha, an apartment resident of Trifecta starlight said the aim of installing solar panels is to give back to the environment.

"The main reason for installing the solar panels is that we wanted to do something for the environment. We wanted to produce something and give back to the environment. The second aspect is that we wanted to keep our costs low," said Harsha, a resident of Trifecta starlight apartment, where the solar panels have been installed at the terrace.

Earlier this month, the state electricity regulatory commission had announced a hike in the power tariff by 40 paise per unit.

According to the order, there has been a 40 paise increase per unit with an average increase of 5.4 per cent.

Mangaluru, Nov 21: Dakshina Kannada District Congress Committee president Harish Kumar urged the Central and state governments to rename Mangalore International Airport after Koti Chennaya — the twin cultural folk heroes of Tulu Nadu.

Speaking to media persons, Mr Kumar, who is also an MLC said: “The DCC will continue its fight till the Airport is renamed. The Malavoor Gram Panchayat had passed a resolution to rename the Airport after Koti Chennaya four years ago, and had sent it to the DK Zilla Panchayat, which too had passed a resolution and sent to the state government to be sent to the Centre for approval.

“In spite of it, when I raised the issue in the Council in March, the government stated that there was no proposal before the state government. Later, on May 26, 2020, the principal secretary to Department of Infrastructure Development sent a circular to Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner stating that the state government has no role to play in the renaming of the Airport as the airports in Kalaburagi, Hubballi, Mangaluru and Belagavi come under Airports Authority of India and have been given for maintenance to the private firms,” the MLC said.

Further, he urged Dakshina Kannada MP and State BJP president Nalin Kumar Kateel to inform the residents of Mangaluru on the status of the proposal that he had sent to the Centre on naming the Airport after Koti Chennaya.

Adani Group which has taken up maintenance of six airports in India has not changed the name of any airport to Adani Airport except that of Mangaluru. “It is a hidden agenda to name the Airport,’’ he alleged.

Stating that the Congress is not engaged in caste politics, the DCC president accused the BJP government of involving in caste politics by creating corporations and boards for Veerashaiva and Maratha communities when the elections were nearing. Incidentally, over 20 authorities, boards and corporations in the state have no presidents.

He accused the BJP government of engaging in election gimmick in the name of caste and religion.

It was the Congress-led government which set up Narayana Guru Study Centre at Mangalore University, initiated measures to develop Padumale, the birth place of Koti Chennaya and creation of Deyi Baidethi medicinal plants garden on seven acres of land near Puttur.

In a separate press release, KPCC former secretary Rakshith Shivaram also warned of intensifying the protest demanding the renaming of the Airport.

Mr Khader said that those behind the graffiti are trying to disrupt peace in the city and hence the police should catch the culprits immediately.
