Bengaluru, Sept 25: Ahead of the discussions in the Karnataka Assembly on Friday, Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa said that he had no objections to the no-confidence motion moved by the Opposition.

Karnataka assembly Speaker Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri had on Thursday admitted a no-confidence motion moved by the Congress against the BJP government led by Yediyurappa.

"I have no objections to the no-confidence motion, let them do it. Every six months they must move the no-confidence motion once so that I can stay safe for the next six months," Yediyurappa told reporters here before entering the Assembly.

The Congress leaders including former CM Siddaramaiah and MLA Ajay Singh said that the party will seek to raise corruption charges against the government in the Assembly today.

"There is rampant corruption in the government, people are dying everywhere and every day. In the last one week we have lost one central minister, one Rajya Sabha MP and an MLA. In the corona corruption case, there has been a corruption of almost Rs 2,000 crores and there are riots everywhere. People are dying, and there are corruption charges against the Chief Minister. The no-confidence motion is about the corruption charges in various areas, including his family and various departments also. We are waiting for the Speaker to give us time to discuss this in detail in the Assembly today," Singh told reporters here.

However, Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy said that his party had not yet been approached by the Congress over the issue of support during the no-confidence motion.

"Congress have not approached or consulted us about the no-confidence motion. The manner in which they are behaving shows they don't want our support, I don't know how they will succeed," Kumaraswamy told news agency here.

Bengaluru, Oct 20: BJP national general secretary C T Ravi has said that the society itself would take a stand about temple-mosque issue in Mathura and Kashi, in appropriate time.

"BJP alone cannot give answer to all such issues. Ram Mandir issue in Ayodhya has the background of a struggle for 500 years, and the temple is being constructed now. Now, the society itself is gaining the strength to take suitable stand on Mathura-Kashi issue," he said.

Refusing to comment much on BJP MLA Basanagouda Patil Yatnal's statement about leadership change in State Government and making an MLA from North Karnataka as the chief minister, Ravi clarified that there is no question of leadership change.

"B S Yediyurappa is our unanimous choice and the party's parliamentary board also endorsed that. Nobody should give statement without responsibility, and Yatnal's statement would be discussed in a suitable platform," he noted.

"No discussion is going on in the party regarding Congress leaders Vinay Kulkarni and M B Patil coming to the BJP. We do not believe in political untouchability, but no decision would be taken without consulting the local unit of the party," Ravi added.

Mysuru, Oct 22: Due to increasing inflow of tourists for the 10-day Dasara Festival in the city, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC), in an effort to control the spread of deadly COVID-19 virus, has formed mobile teams to conduct COVID-19 tests free of cost.

Also, the MCC, in association with the Health and Family Welfare Department, has started COVID testing centres at 23 different locations of the city.

MCC Health Officer Dr D G Nagaraj stated that the Corporation has taken this initiative to conduct testing on both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients, as there is an increased inflow of tourists, he added.

MCC has appealed to the public to make use of the facility. Besides, if commercial or industrial establishments, educational institutions, Government or private organisations, want their staff to undergo COVID tests, they can contact the MCC, following which the mobile teams will visit their place and conduct COVID tests for free.

Bengaluru, Oct 10: A day after reports of 34 children in Belgavi district testing positive for Covid-19 emerged, the government of Karnataka has decided to stop the ambitious ‘Vidyagama’ scheme, albeit temporarily.

The scheme, a continuous learning plan for children in government and aided schools in the State, was launched by the Education Department around two months ago in the wake of the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic.

However, since its launch, there has been widespread opposition from various quarters. Recently, communities in M. Thimmapur village near Ramdurg complained that 34 students had tested positive for COVID-19 over the past few days. They had alleged that students had contracted the virus while attending classes conducted by teachers in open public spaces as part of the ‘Vidyagama’ scheme.

Minister for Primary and Secondary Education S. Suresh Kumar announced that the officials of the department had been directed to stop implementing the scheme until a proper analysis of pros and cons is complete. He stated that the scheme was launched for the benefit of children belonging to lower socio-economic backgrounds.

Former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has also been vocal in opposing the scheme. In a series of tweets, he alleged that the State government was risking the lives of both teachers and students.

Concurring, Basavaraj Gurikar, president of Karnataka State Primary School Teachers’ Association, said the scheme should be scrapped. “Nothing is more important than the health of children. The government should focus on health, rather than implement such schemes that only risk the lives of teachers and students,” he said.
