Bengaluru, Jan 19: Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa will be ‘safe’ as long as he doesn't meddle with the JD(S) and if he does, he will have to pay the price for it, former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy warned on Monday.

Speaking to reporters, Kumaraswamy lashed out at both BJP and Congress. "In 2008, Yediyurappa had declared that he will put an end to JD(S) in Karnataka. I retaliated by releasing documents of corruption in government. Till now, I have been silent and hence, Yediyurappa is safe," Kumaraswamy said, threatening to release more documents.

As for speculations over an alleged CD about Yediyurappa, Kumaraswamy said he would not delve into personal details of anyone.

"What I will release are government documents in public interest. I am not interested in anyone's private life," he said.

Kumaraswamy also targeted Congress leader Siddaramaiah.

"He claims to know from RSS sources that Yediyurappa will step down after April. He accused me of being BJP's 'B' team. Today he is citing RSS sources. Is he the 'B' team of RSS?" he said.

Bengaluru, Feb 26: The number of persons arrested in connection with the blast at a crusher at Hirenagaveli, Chikkaballapur district, is now eight after the police nabbed G S Nagaraj, one of the four partners of the quarry and a local BJP leader.

Known as Gudibande Nagaraj, he was one of the main accused in the quarry explosion case. He was on the run since the explosion claimed the lives of six labourers of the crusher during the late hours of February 22. The tragedy occurred when they were attempting to hide the cache of explosives in the forest land behind the crusher, after raids by authorities earlier in the day.

Another person identified as Ganesh, hailing from Tamil Nadu, was also arrested by the police for questioning, as he is learnt to have to conducted blasting at the crusher a few months ago.

Nagaraj was among the four partners running the quarry. Three others, Venkatashiva Reddy, Raghavendra Reddy and Madhusudan Reddy were arrested on Thursday.

According to Chikkaballapur police, eight accused in the blast case are now arrested. A total of 15 people were named in the FIR, which was initially filed against the crusher on February 7 and updated post the explosion. 

Apart from the six people who perished in the incident, one more dead person - Imthiyaz, one of the partners of the quarry, who passed away two months ago - was also named in the FIR filed by the police.

CID officials, who took over the case, launched their investigation into the incident.

Bengaluru, Feb 17: Opposition leader in the Karnataka Assembly Siddaramaiah has reportedly got Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s nod for his planned Ahinda (Kannada acronym for minorities, backward classes and Dalits) convention.

It was such a convention more than a decade ago that led to his expulsion from the JD(S) and cemented him as the leader of these communities leading to the Congress’ win in the 2013 Assembly polls.

“Issues like the growing demand for reservations from communities and other political developments in the state came up in the meeting. When Siddaramaiah proposed his plan to organise an Ahinda convention, Rahul Gandhi said that he will support any initiative that will strengthen the party in Karnataka,” persons briefed on the meeting said.

Siddaramaiah met Rahul Gandhi in Delhi on Tuesday touching off speculations over the purpose of the meeting. The former CM has kept away from the public campaigns of the Kuruba community seeking ST reservation. He has always projected himself as an upholder of the interests of the backward, minority and SC/ST communities, rather than just Kurubas, the community he belongs to.

“He (Siddaramaiah) apprised the national leader about the state’s political developments and also requested to speed up the reshuffling of KPCC office-bearers in view of the impending bypolls to two Assembly seats and the Belagavi Lok Sabha seat. He also discussed his plans to intensify the farmers’ protest and take it to the gram panchayat level,” the source said.

Siddaramaiah, however, said it was just a “courtesy visit”. Asked about Kurubas’ recent campaign demanding ST status, he said, while he was all for the cause, the timing was wrong. “What was the need for (BJP minister) KS Eshwarappa and other BJP ministers to participate in a rally seeking reservation when their own party is in power both in the state and the Centre,” he asked.

Bengaluru, Feb 18: The bypoll to the Karnataka Legislative Council seat which fell vacant due to the death of Council deputy speaker S L Dharmegowda will take place on March 15, the Election Commission said on Thursday.

According to the ECI order, notification for the bypoll will be issued on February 25 and the last date of filing nominations is March 4.

The last date for withdrawal is March 8.

The ECI said the polling by the MLAs will take place between 9 am to 4 pm on March 15 and counting of votes will take place the same day.

The Commission said the election process should conclude before March 18.

It also said the election will take place as per Covid-19 safety guidelines including wearing of face masks and using sanitisers.

Dharmegowda, the 64-year-old JD(S) MLC, was found dead on a rail track in Chikkamagaluru district of Karnataka in the early hours of December 29, with police sources claiming he died by suicide.

The late leader was at the centre of high drama in the legislative council on December 15, which saw BJP-JD(S) and Congress members hurling abuses and pushing each other over a row pertaining to a no-confidence motion against then Chairman K Pratapachandra Shetty.

During the ruckus, Dharmegowda, who was in the Chairman's seat, was pulled down by some Congress legislators who accused him of occupying the chair against the rules.
