Riyadh, Apr 28: A.P. Aboobacker Musliar, general secretary, All India Sunni Jamiyyathul Ulama, held discussions with Saudi Deputy Labor Minister and the Director of Labor Affairs Ahmed Humaidan in Riyadh early this week.

Musliar said that during the discussions, he had raised the issues concerning thousands of Keralites in the wake of the Nitaqat rules in Saudi Arabia.

He said Dr. Humaidan had assured him that the new labour rules would not adversely affect the vast majority of Indians, and they continued to play a vital role in the development of the kingdom.

Musliar asked Dr. Humaidan for special consideration for thousands of Indians working away from their sponsors in Saudi Arabia.

He asked him to help “Huroob” violators to leave the country before the present grace period expires so that they can look for jobs again in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries. The deputy minister said he would ask the Minister of Labor to help solve these problems amicably.

He demanded that the rules and regulations for change of sponsorship and profession be simplified.

Musliar also met Prince Khaled Al-Faisal.

Dr. Abdul Hakim Azhari, Dr. Hussain Saqafi Chullikkode and Gammon Group Chairman Sheikh Mohammed Rafeeq accompanied him to the meetings.

Bengaluru, Nov 21: After meeting party MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy on Saturday, Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar said that he has listened to Murthy's plea regarding the Bengaluru riot case, saying that he will forward it to the disciplinary committee.

"I have listened to the request of MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy and forwarded it to the party disciplinary committee. The disciplinary committee will take appropriate action," KPCC president DK Shivakumar told reporters after talks with Murthy, who visited his residence in Sadashivanagar.

This comes after Srinivas Murthy reiterated his demand that his party should expel former Congress Mayor R Sampath Raj and Congress corporator Abdul Rakeeb Zakir, who are named in the Bengaluru riot case.
"MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy, who met me today, has appealed to me. I listened to his plea... Our legislators have also cast doubt on Sampath Raj. He has also issued a letter exposing him. I will deliver the letter to the party disciplinary committee," Shivakumar said.

Answering queries about Sampath Raj, who was arrested in the Bengaluru riot case, he said, "An investigation into the DG village and KG village riots is still underway. Sampath Raj's allegation is yet to be proved. All this has to be decided in court. If someone makes a statement tomorrow, can I take action based on that? Reposted that."

Further talking about the riot case, he said, "Police officers, BJP leaders and the government are working under pressure. So we know who made the statement. There is a disciplinary committee at our party. The disciplinary committee will take a closer look at the issue."

Violence had broken out in parts of Bengaluru on August 11 over an alleged "derogatory" social media post. At least three people lost their lives, while nearly 60 police personnel were injured in the incident. The police arrested around 415 accused in connection with the violence.

An FIR was registered on the complaint of Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy at DJ Halli Police station three days after the violence broke out in parts of Bengaluru over an alleged "derogatory" social media post by his nephew, the police said.

Belagavi, Nov 28: Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister K S Eshwarappa said that the BJP needs to repay the debt of MLAs who crossed over to the party and facilitated the formation of the government in the state.

The BJP leadership had assured them that they would get re-elected and induct them into the Cabinet, he added.

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, Eshwarappa said, "the dissatisfied MLAs from Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) joined the BJP, else we could not have formed our government. Now all are BJP MLAs and the question of new and old does not arise".

"Cabinet berths were less and aspirants were more. We have to accommodate all of them. BJP state and central leadership will soon take a decision in this regard," he said.

Regarding activities in the residence of Water Resources Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi in Bengaluru, he said such political activities have led to the BJP government being formed in the state. There was nothing wrong with him demanding a cabinet berth for MLC C P Yogeshwar.

Regarding remarks by Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah that Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa would be replaced, Eshwarappa said such foolish statements were not anticipated from the former chief minister. "Our party is disciplined and any mistakes, if committed, were rectified through guidance. Yeddyurappa will complete his tenure," he said.

He denied having knowledge of the reasons regarding the Chief Minister's Political Secretary N R Santosh attempting to end his life. We have over one crore party workers and their family members are aware of the reasons for them taking such extreme measures.
