Mangaluru, Feb 22: Leader of opposition Siddaramaiah today came down heavily on Popular Front of India and its political arm Social Democratic Party and accused those outfits of indirectly supporting Bharatiya Janata Party by splitting votes during polls.

The former CM was speaking at the ‘Bhavaikyata Samaavesha’ organised by the Dakshina Kannada district unit of Indian National Congress to mark the swearing in ceremony of K K Shahul Hameed as the new president of the minority wing of the DK Congress today at town hall. 

“The BJP has claimed that there are sufficient evidence for the involvement of PFI and SDPI in communal violence cases including recent Bengaluru violence. If that is the case why the Karnataka unit of BJP is not pressurising the Modi government at the Centre to impose ban on those outfits?” Siddaramiah questioned. 

SDPI B-team of BJP: Siddaramaiah

Earlier, speaking to media persons at Mangaluru International Airport, Siddaramaiah dubbed PFI and SDPI as the 'B teams' of BJP. 

"BJP initially gives permission to PFI to hold the rally. Then indulges in blame-game. In a way, PFI and SDPI are B teams of BJP,” he said.

Image result for Deve Gowda calls upon to save regional party in next polls

Bengaluru, Feb 14: Former Prime Minister and JD-S Supremo H D Deve gowda on Sunday called upon the party workers and leaders to save the regional party in the state in upcoming elections.

Speaking after inaugurating a JD-S conference here, he said that it was up to the workers who have to strive hard to win more seats in the coming elections besides strengthening the party across the state.

He said "I can only guide you and it would not be possible to travel all over the place. I can advise and give suggestions to you to do so. We have put up a strong fight in upcoming Karnataka local body elections which are very important to us. We need to prove that we have not fallen behind.

He said “We have to show what our strength is in the coming elections. Even a small difference could make a difference while allocating a seat. Please do not shake your head about it. We all need to work in unity. Our party should win the next election and save our regional party in this state which is needed at this hour.

Speaking on the occasion former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy said when his party did not file any candidates who the congress was so worried and feared including the leader of the opposition.

He said "I don't have a soft voice about the BJP. There is no soft attitude towards any party. Those who claimed that the JDS was not a party in the state should make again and again statements.

JDS will contest by-elections in three constituencies - Muski, Sindagi and Basavakalyan. H D Kumaraswamy announced that we will field a candidate from JDS in three areas.

He also explained how he worked in the Congress-JDS coalition government all through the tenure and there was a lot of pressure on him from the Congress leaders for every issue.

He said no one can eliminate the JD-S in the state which has their own strength and fight for all upcoming elections in the state .

He called upon the workers to lose their hope and time will come for everyone and winning and losing are quite normal in the elections, however, do not be disheartened, he added.

Bengaluru, Feb 11: Karnataka Women seem to be more open to vaccination than men as Co-WIN app data suggests that 2,89,787 women have been vaccinated so far in the state while only 1,74,545 men have been vaccinated.

This also mimics the national trend where 39,56,198 women were vaccinated against 28,90,676 men.

However, officials say that since a majority of health workers like ASHAs, ANMs, staff nurses are women, it is plausible that more women are vaccinated than men and it may have nothing to do with hesitancy among men.
As per Covid patients' data in the State, Men have been infected more (5,79,298) compared to women (3,63,914). Even in mortality rates, a higher number of men have succumbed to the disease (8,757) than women (3,484).

In the first state sero-survey, 30 percent of male respondents were found to have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus over 22 per cent women, out of the 16,585 individuals surveyed.

A gender-wise beneficiaries break-up sourced from the Co-WIN dashboard as on February 10 showed that 6,00158 women were registered for vaccination in the state, 96,254 more than the number of men.

Health Commissioner Pankaj Kumar Pandey said, "We have more female grassroots health workers than male workers. We have around 40,000 ASHAs, 15,000 female ANMs, nurses, health professionals and paramedics who are mostly women. Anganwadi workers are also women. We need to check vaccine acceptance rates in men though."

"It is true that men have been affected more by Covid than women. Then why are they not coming forward to get vaccinated? We should probably look at targeting IEC materials at men who seem to be the vulnerable group when it comes to Covid."

There are 1.3 lakh employees in the Health department of which regular employees are 69,000, NHM staff is 25,000, and the rest are contract workers, where women outnumber men. "In Arogya Soudha itself, there are only 45 per cent who are vaccinated. We are trying to convince and increase our own numbers," he added.

New Delhi, Feb 21: All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) chief Dr Randeep Guleria in an NDTV interview suggested that the new strains of the coronavirus that have emerged in India are likely more infectious and dangerous than the original strain. Dr Guleria also added that herd immunity in India was a "myth."

Following the spike in Covid-19 cases in Maharashtra, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, and Punjab, questions about the possibility of a new strain of the virus emerging began to gain more traction. 

The case spike in Maharashtra, which has triggered a lockdown in three districts and has seen a statewide tightening of restrictions is likely due to a number of new strains, a member of Maharashtra's Covid task force told NDTV.  The task force member — Dr Shashank Joshi — also informed the news outlet that 240 new strains of the coronavirus had emerged across India.

Dr Guleria urged caution while dealing with the new strains, irrespective of whether they were seen to be more deadly or not. He added that the reason for their higher infection rate was down to their ability to evade antibodies, known as the "immune escape mechanism."

This means that even after receiving the vaccine, one could still get infected by the coronavirus variants. The AIIMS chief reassured that the vaccines would work against the new strains, albeit with a lower efficacy. However, he continued to urge caution and suggested that newer strains of the virus might emerge as more individuals begin to receive the vaccine.
